(NEW YORK, NY) – THROWDOWN has debuted a new track today titled “Avow” from their upcoming new LP “Intolerance,” due out January 21, 2014. “I’ve written a lot of lyrical content coming off as rehashed. I was meticulous if not a little obsessive about making all venture into similar territory,” says frontman Dave Peters. “It’s been two decades since I’ve been straight edge. ‘Avow’ is about how it was important to me.”
THROWDOWN will release “Intolerance” on January 21, 2014. The new effort combines the massive production punch of the moody, sludgy and powerfully diverse masterpiece “Deathless” (which spawned the Sirius XM staples “This Continuum” and “The Scythe”) with the focused resolve of the band’s genre-classic-filled back catalog.
The new album was recorded at Hurley Recordings in Costa Mesa, California with rising producer Davey Warsop and mixed at Planet Z. “Intolerance” features guitar solo contributions from Dave Nassie (Bleeding Through, No Use For A Name, Infectious Grooves), who joined Throwdown’s recent touring lineup alongside Demon Hunter drummer Tim “Yogi” Watts and “Deathless” era bassist Mark Mitchell.
“Intolerance picks up where 2005’s groove-metal-leaning, hardcore-based Vendetta left off— only at the band’s current abilities, which have never been stronger.” Alternative Press
“‘Intolerance’ splits the difference between Pantera’s power-groove and Hatebreed’s power-pummel to mosh-fuelling effect.” Revolver
