Platinum selling metal act DROWNING POOL has announced a worldwide deal with eOne Music and plans to release a new LP next year. “We are truly honored to be part of the eOne family,” says the band. “We would like to thank eOne for not only their support, but also for allowing us the autonomy to make the record we envision.” The yet to be titled new record will be the band’s follow up to Resilience,released in 2013.
The band is currently in the studio with renowned producer Jason Suecof (AUGUST BURNS RED, DEICIDE, DEATH ANGEL) and will wrap production this fall. “We are excited to welcome Drowning Pool to the growing roster of bands at eOne,” says eOne VP of Metal/Rock Scott Givens. “I’m personally looking forward to unleashing the band’s new single later this year.”
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 catalog 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).
Moreno injects fresh life into the songs with his unique stamp. As Revolver Magazine noted in their review of Resilience: “Drowning Pool continue to produce consistently killer albums with an unmistakable sound.”
