Alternative rock/metal band Drowning Pool rocked countless fans at the 2001 Ozzfest Tour, helping propel their debut album Sinner to platinum status in just six weeks. That good news shortly turned tragic following the death of lead singer Dave Williams, but the ever-resilient Drowning Pool has continued to sell tickets under a revolving list of singers, including Jason Jones (2003-2005), Ryan McCombs (2005-2011) and Jasen Moreno (2011-Present). The band is considered one of the best metal bands in concert and have played on multiple Ozzfest Tours. They released their fifth studio album, "Resilience," with new singer Moreno in 2013. "Resilience" features "In Memory Of..." dedicated to the late singer Williams and released on the 10th anniversary of his death, as well as "Saturday Night" and "One Finger and a Fist," which both will be popular at upcoming shows.
Drowning Pool formed in Dallas, Texas, in the second half of the 1990s with guitarist C.J. Pierce, bassist Stevie Benton and drummer Mike Luce. After releasing the platinum-selling "Sinner," Drowning Pool recorded one album with Jason Jones ("Desensitized") before doing two recordings ("Full Circle" and "Drowning Pool") with McCombs. After McCombs decided to rejoin SOiL (who he previously recorded and played with), Drowning Pool connected with Moreno, who joined the band on the road and in-studio in New Jersey for the recording of "Resilience." Drowning Pool is a band that continues to overcome incredible and sometimes horrific obstacles, such as the death of singer Dave Williams; yet they continue to trend forward and serve as one of modern rock's best live acts.
