Texas heavy rockers DROWNING POOL will release their new album, “Hellelujuah”, on January 22 via eOne Music. The follow-up to 2013’s “Resilience” was recorded with renowned producer Jason Suecof (AUGUST BURNS RED, DEICIDE, DEATH ANGEL).
“We’re excited as hell to announce the release of our new record titled ‘Hellelujah’,” says the band. “This is the most metal record from DROWNING POOL to date. Be on the lookout for the new single. Can we get a Hellelujah? Amen!”
DROWNING POOL earlier in the year embarked on the second leg of its “Sinner Unlucky 13th Anniversary Tour”, on which the band played its 2001 debut album, “Sinner”, from start to finish.
The “Sinner” album arrived in June 2001 and featured the monster single “Bodies”, plus follow-up rock radio hits “Sinner” and “Tear Away”.
Original DROWNING POOL frontman Dave Williams, who sang on “Sinner”, passed away from heart disease on the band’s tour bus in August 2002, while the group was out promoting the record.
In January 2004, the band announced the addition of singer Jason “Gong” Jones. Their sophomore effort, “Desensitized”, followed several months later. In 2006, Ryan McCombs assumed the vocal duties, and a year later they released “Full Circle”, followed by a self-titled album in 2010. McCombs, the only singer to ever record more than one album with the group, departed the following year, and was replaced by SUICIDE HOOK vocalist Jasen Moreno, who made his official debut on “Resilience”.
