After announcing he was working on a solo project back in August, former Pantera bassist Rex Brown has revealed his solo debut album is slated to be released in May 2017. Brown opened up on the process to Eddie Trunk on Trunk Nation this week.
“I went to NAMM last year, and I have a really good friend, this songwriter, Lance Harvill; a great songwriter and just killer guitar player, and we started putting together songs,” he said. “It’s just one of those things, I feel free again, and the material on this is as good as anything I’ve ever done.”
Brown tapped producer Caleb Sherman for the project as well as Accept drummer Christopher Williams. He went on to say that he will tour in support of the album with dates in Europe as well as some festivals, though the trek won’t be “extensive”.
Brown was the bassist for Pantera until their split. He played with Down until 2011 and went on to play with Kill Devil Hill, which has been quiet since their sophomore record in 2013. When asked if Kill Devil Hill would be getting back to work, Brown told Trunk, “That’s something we’re gonna figure out here before the holidays. The options are open on that one. But I’ve got to do this [solo project] right now.”
