Kirk Windstein (Crowbar/Down) Shares New Video, Debut Solo Album Due Next Year

One of the architects of Southern Metal and Sludge, Kirk Windstein is bringing forth his debut solo album. Best known for his work in Crowbar, Down and Kingdom of Sorrow, Windstein will release his debut solo album, Dream in Motion, January 24, 2020 via eOne Music. Kirk handled all vocal duties, guitars, and bass on the album, with drums and effects by longtime producing partner and collaborator, Duane Simoneaux (Crowbar, Down, Exhorder). The album features new originals and The a faithful rendition of ‘Aqualung’, the title track of Jethro Tull’s 1971 masterpiece. Directed by Justin Reich (Black Label Society, Royal Thunder), watch the video for the title track now!

Kirk commented:

‘I’m going to do an acoustic record,’ but that’s just so cliché, you know?” says Windstein. “Nothing against that, but It’s been done a million times. But I had been thinking about doing something a little more mellow for some time. It’s something I wanted to do, I needed to do. It’s another side of my songwriting, my personality. It’s another side of me. It’s something I did for myself. It’s not even that this isn’t heavy, because there are bits and pieces that are very heavy. But even the heaviest riff on this is something I couldn’t really do in Crowbar. If some Crowbar fans don’t like it, I’ll understand. But I hope people dig it.”

A song of hope

A burning mind

Unleashing strength

From deep inside

The will to fight

To carry on

Within my heart it’s never ever gone.

This is a dream in motion and it will never end

It’s an eternal hunger

Growing life again

I’ve seen so much

Through all these years

I’ve seen the light

Through burning tears

I’ve done my best

To turn away

And kill the darkness

Every single day

My light will never ever fade

I stand alone

My mind will rise above it all

I’ve learned the pain will slowly die

I’ve touched the sky

This is a dream in motion and it will never end

It’s an eternal hunger
