NEW YORK -Platinum selling metal act DROWNING POOL have released an all new single titled “By The Blood”.
“We’re excited as hell to get our brand new single out to everyone!” says guitarist CJ Pierce. “Back to the core sound you know from Drowning Pool! Crank it up! .” The single made its radio debut yesterday on SiriusXM’s Octane. Drowning Pool will release Hellelujah on February 5, 2016 via Entertainment One Music. The new LP will be the first since signing with the label earlier this summer.
The band is also revealing the cover art designed by world renowned artist Brian Mercer(CHRIS CORNELL, LAMB OF GOD, HIGH ON FIRE). Hellelujah will be the follow up to Resilience, released in 2013. This time the band tapped renowned producer Jason Suecof(AUGUST BURNS RED, DEICIDE, DEATH ANGEL). Jason was the perfect man to capture the blend of metallic roots and instantly memorable choruses, riffs, and wickedly upfront lyrical assaults.
Drowning Pool have beaten the darkness and now they celebrate life on life’s terms. The core trio of C.J. Pierce (guitar), Stevie Benton (bass) and Mike Luce (drums) mine hardship, struggle and disappointment to emerge victorious each time, crafting empowering hard rock anthems. Drowning Pool songs conjure emotions that deeply connect with those who persevere against the odds and sacrifice to survive, and their music transcends boundaries of race, class and lifestyle as well, resonating with people from all walks of life who look to music to get them through life’s challenges.
Jason Moreno’s powerful vocals enabled him to quickly master Drowning Pool’s dense catalogue when he became the band’s frontman in 2012. From his reverent delivery of the late Dave Williams mosh-pit ready lyrics in the ubiquitous signature hit “Bodies” to his powerful take on Top 5 Active Rock hits like “Step Up” from Desensitized (2004), “37 Stitches” from Full Circle (2007), and “Feel Like I Do” (Drowning Pool, 2010).
