Downset guitarist and One Blood producer Brian Ares Schwager on the album:
“One Blood is Downset in its truest form, coming straight from our hearts to touch the hearts of others.”
More on the album:
"Produced by Downset guitarist Brian Ares Schwager and mixed by Wesley Seldman, One Blood was recorded in three locations – Venice and Overland rehearsal studio in Culver City, CA, The Basement in Baltimore, MD, and Creating Better Sounds studio in Palmdale, CA."
"This year’s One Blood will continue the epic tradition that only Downset can truly express – hybridizing hip-hop and crushing riffs with lyrics that touch the world dramatically. The unique style of music on this release will remind listeners of Downset’s critical position in this contemporary era of art, expression and music."
One Blood hits stores everywhere this coming Monday, July 21.
