All-American anthemic rockers Drowning Pool have confirmed a new album to be released in Spring 2013. Today, the video for the album’s lead single, “Saturday Night” isexclusively premiering on VEVO and the song is for purchase on iTunes.
Earlier this year, it was announced that fellow Texan Jasen Moreno was selected as the band’s new singer. Moreno joined Drowning Pool following the departure of their former lead singer. The band’s fifth album and first with Moreno was produced by Kato Khandwala (Marilyn Manson, Breaking Benjamin, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus) at House of Loud Studios in New Jersey as well as John Feldmann (Papa Roach, Escape The Fate, The Used).
Not only is the adrenaline-inducing video for “Saturday Night” the first look at Moreno as lead man, it’s a rebel rousing point-of-view following one man’s eventful evening and includes Drowning Pool fans. The band called out to fans via Facebook and included them in the performance footage as well as the motel party scene. The video was produced and directed by the young up and comers, Jon Bertorelli (Director) Daniel Livschultz (Producer) of Vulpine Films.
Bassist Stevie Benton says, “Saturday Night is a song about squeezing the most out of every single day of your life. It’s about enjoying yourself and not apologizing for a damn thing. The video follows an average guy in his quest to ‘party like a rock star.’
The next time you are sitting around doing nothing, we hope this song inspires you to make something happen.”
The band will also be performing a handful of shows in the very near future. For a list of upcoming tour dates, please see below.
Drowning Pool turned the world into believers with their breakthrough single “Bodies” in 2001. Ten years, three singers and four albums later, they’re giving fans a new reason to believe. “Feel Like I Do,” the lead single from their self-titled fourth studio release [Eleven Seven Music], became the band’s biggest radio hit to date, reaching No. 2 at Active Rock Radio, and remaining in the Top 5 for 12-weeks. With 2009’s “37 Stitches” off of Full Circle reaching #4 at Active Rock and “Feel Like I Do,” the band had 2 consecutive Top 5 Active Rock smashes and cemented their place as one of the top hard rock acts today. The band’s sophomore album, Desensitized with second singer Jason Jones spawned a Top 10 hit with “Step Up.” Recent successes have paved the way for unique opportunities such as presenting the Lane Evans Mental Health Care Reform to then-senator Barack Obama on Capitol Hill, performing for our troops all over the world and partnering with organizations like The Wounded Warrior Project and the G.I. Film Festival.
