At this point, absolutely nothing can stop Drowning Pool. The platinum-selling Texas quartet continues to roll forward fearlessly as they finish up work on their fifth, as yet untitled full-length album and third for Eleven Seven Music. Recorded at ‘House of Loud’ studios with Katao Khandwala again at the helm their patent arena-ready, fist-pumping hard rock remains intact even as they welcome new singer Jasen Moreno into the fold. Make no mistake about it. This is Drowning Pool at their most focused, fiery, and fierce.
For proof look no further than the video for upcoming single ‘One Finger and a Fist’ which will be the first taste of things to come in 2013 when it premieres online on 12th February. In a career earmarked by radio hits such as “Bodies” and “Step Up”, this latest single’s heavier moments hit harder, while the melodic moments are even more poignant than anything the band have released before.
Drowning Pool continue to deliver on record, on stage, and beyond. They’ve toured Kuwait, Iraq, Korea, and Guantanamo Bay, performing for the soldiers. They’ve kicked asses on high-profile tours such as Crüe Fest and OZZfest, sharing bills with everyone from Mötley Crüe and Papa Roach to Ozzy Osbourne and System of a Down. In April they will return to the UK with Chris Jericho’s Fozzy for what promises to be an awesome series of shows:
