DROWNING POOL DEBUT "BY THE BLOOD" VIDEO EXCLUSIVELY VIA LOUDWIRE.COM
DROWNING POOL today have debuted a new music video for their hit single "By The Blood" exclusively via Loudwire.com. Directed by Daniel Wanghorn of Toaster in the Tub Productions, this is the first video we've seen since the band released their all new LP earlier this month. "By The Blood" can be heard in heavy rotation on SiriusXM's Octane channel.
Drowning Pool also just announced a string of headlining tour dates. Audiotopsy and Violent New Breed are serving as support.
Drowning Pool released Hellelujah on February 5, 2016 via Entertainment One Music (eOne). The band tapped renowned artist Brian Mercer (CHRIS CORNELL, LAMB OF GOD, HIGH ON FIRE) to design the cover art. Hellelujah is the follow up to Resilience, released in 2013. This time the band worked with producer Jason Suecof (AUGUST BURNS RED, DEICIDE, DEATH ANGEL) at the helm.
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.
Jasen 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).
