Drowning Pool Visits Nellis AFB

Platinum Texas rock outfit Drowning Pool has been touring in support of the "Sinner" album, which was reissued last week in 2-disc deluxe edition format via The Bicycle Music Company/Concord.

On their way through the great state of Nevada, the guys stopped at Nellis Air Force Base in the Mojave Wasteland. A great time was had by all as the band hosted a huge meet & greet, honoring our active military and veterans.

In a band statement, Drowning Pool says, “It's always a pleasure for us to have the opportunity to support our troops. We've been fortunate this year on our Sinner 'Unlucky 13th Anniversary' tour to hit a few bases across the county. Our recent visit to Nellis Air Force Base has definitely been one of the highlights. Such a great group of people that organized the visit, and like always, it was such an honor for us to sign and take pictures in support of our air man and their families. We appreciate the organizers at Nellis AFB for giving us the full tour! Besides our meet & greet/signing, we had the amazing opportunity to watch the Thunderbirds air show. Amazing! Insanely talented pilots. We look forward to future base visits and our continued support of our troops.”

Lt. Jonathon Lee and Sgt. Anthony Caldwell commented on the visit before the band arrived, stating, “I think it's awesome of them to help us out and show their support for the military, and I can't wait to meet them, I think they are stand up guys.” Caldwell also adds, “I'm here to see Drowning Pool and I think it's amazing that they are out here at Nellis AFB, pretty cool that they are supporting the troops.” More...

Drowning Pool Re-Issuing "Sinner"

Drowning Pool is set to release the two-disc "Sinner (Unlucky 13th Anniversary Deluxe Edition)" on 11/11/14 via The Bicycle Music Company/Concord.

The band will also launch the corresponding Unlucky Sinner 13 tour performing "Sinner" in its entirety beginning October 21st in San Antonio, Texas.

The expanded reissue of debut album "Sinner," originally released on 6/15/01, represents the definitive version of Drowning Pool’s classic Dave Williams years, whose untimely death in 2002 at the too-early age of 30 marked an unlucky end to a rising star.

"Sinner (Unlucky 13th Anniversary Deluxe Edition)" is re-mastered and features a new bonus disc of 13 studio demos direct from the band’s vaults, officially available for the first time.

The unreleased track “Soul,” from disc two, was serviced to the Active Rock radio format just a few days ago and a video for “Soul” will premiere in November featuring rare and never before seen footage of Drowning Pool from the "Sinner" era. Pre-orders for this new version can be found at Amazon.com here.

Drowning Pool Comments On New Vocalist

Drowning Pool split with third vocalist Ryan McCombs late last year, and now guitarist C.J. Pierce has issued the following announcement about officially recruiting new singer Jasen Moreno:

"It's been a real pleasure for all of us working with Jasen Moreno. He jumped right in and stepped up to the plate. He's everything we hoped for in a singer. Jasen came in and got straight to work on new music for our next CD.

"Out of respect to all past singers and most importantly the Drowning Pool fans he learned every song from every CD we've made in the past as well. Jasen has brought us not only a new voice but a new fire to the Drowning Pool sound. We all can't wait to get the new music out to there to everyone.

"With the live show, we just did a two week run and I have to say, I haven't had this much fun in over ten years. It's really great playing a lot of old songs and jamming some of the new tunes as well. I think some of my favorite moments on this run is when fans come up and request songs and we can play any song from any CD for them.

"Looking forward to the rest of our career with Jasen. The singer switch is finally over!"

Drowning Pool Splits With Vocalist

Drowning Pool has announced the band is parting ways with current singer Ryan McCombs. The Texas band, which has worked with 3 singers in its 10 year career, issued the following statement:

"We have always been a band who has gained success despite having multiple singers...maybe we suffer from reverse 'lead singer's disease," said C.J. Pierce. "Changing things up has not always been easy, but the band has become re-energized time and time again. We are looking to find a new singer who will give both us and, and most importantly our fans, the new adrenaline shot they deserve." He went on to say, "We do wish Ryan great success in his future endeavors." McCombs, who had been part of the band since 2006, replaced singer Jason Jones, who joined Drowning Pool following the tragic passing of Dave Williams.

Drowning Pool is currently looking to find a suitable replacement for McCombs. In the meantime, the band has already begun writing for a 5th studio album in the group's hometown of Dallas.

Drowning Pool is C.J. Pierce – guitar/ vocals, Stevie Benton – bass/vocals, and Mike Luce – drums/vocals.
