Crowbar Releases “Zero and Below” with Shane Wesley on Bass

Crowbar Releases: Zero and BelowThe sludge metal pioneers in Crowbar have just released their 12th studio album, entitled Zero and Below. Three decades into their career, they still have all the same heavy doom and punk attitude that they ever had. A press release calls it the “most unforgivably doom-driven Crowbar record since their 1998 landmark effort, Odd Fellows Rest.”

While the record is a continuation of their iconic sound, it marks a shift in the bass chair. Shane Wesley joined the band in 2018, but Zero and Below is the first studio album to feature his bass work. His snarling bass tone adds bite and depth to the music.

Hear him on the track “Bleeding From Every Hole” with this horror-film-inspired video. (Warning: graphic content)

Crowbar is currently on tour in support of the album. See dates below.

Zero and Below is available now on CD, vinyl, and as a digital download (iTunes and Amazon MP3).
