Rex Brown reveals plans to release solo record.

Former Pantera and Down bassist Rex Brown will release his solo debut album next year, he’s revealed.

He’ll be heard singing and playing guitar and bass on tracks inspired by his love of 1970s music.

And he says the project came about after he began to feel burnt out by life on the road.

Brown tells Metal Hammer: “I had to get off that bus after 25 years or more. I reached a point where I wanted to take some time off, watch my kids grow, be at home and just find out what the next journey is.

“I went to Nashville last summer, and I have this good friend who sits in his bedroom and writes incredible stuff. I’d found this tape with about 80 different riffs, so we started piecing together these songs. I’ve been going back and forth to Nashville from maybe last September. I think the longest I was there was 11 days, getting a feel for the band.

“I’m enjoying playing music again – and that took a while.”
