A snippet from “Crossing Lines” can be heard below courtesy of Loudwire’s Podcast #12. The song is from Rex’s upcoming solo album which is scheduled to come out in May 2017.
Rex says this about his solo stuff: It will have “little fringes of Led Zeppelin” but added, “It’s a new journey that sounds like anywhere from Foghat to old Tom Waits. I’m a child of the ’70s and I love those kind of songs.”

The video is set to start at the sample of the song, but after hearing it, go ahead and start the podcast from the beginning to get fully informed on what Rex has been up to now, in addition to some Pantera history and the inside scoop of the visual history book; “A Vulgar Display Of Pantera”.
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.”
