(December 18, 2015) – Platinum selling metal act DROWNING POOL have released a second new song titled “Snake Charmer,” exclusively via Billboard Magazine. “This is a tune about the poisonous souls we have endured during our time in the music business,” says vocalist Jasen Moreno. “We won’t name any names, but you know who you are. Basically it’s about how to keep kicking ass when things go bad.” Drowning Pool will release Hellelujah on February 5, 2016 via Entertainment One Music. The new LP will be the first since signing with the label earlier this summer.
The band is also releasing a lyric video for their current radio hit “By The Blood.” The single debuted a few weeks ago with stunning momentum on SiriusXM’s Octane channel. The track was also featured during World Series of Fighting 25 that took place last month.
The band recently revealed the cover art designed by world renowned artist Brian Mercer (CHRIS CORNELL, LAMB OF GOD, HIGH ON FIRE). Hellelujah will be the follow up to Resilience, released in 2013. This time the band tapped renowned producer Jason Suecof (AUGUST BURNS RED, DEICIDE, DEATH ANGEL). Jason was the perfect man to capture the blend of metallic roots and instantly memorable choruses, riffs, and wickedly upfront lyrical assaults.
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).
