Metropolis Touring and Tombowler are proud to present Texan powerhouse quartet, Drowning Pool this July. After a Fourteen year absence Drowning Pool have now set their sights on Australian soil for their first ever headline tour plus a special one off New Zealand show. Big sonic slabs of muscular power with a taste of the dark melodies of post-grunge remain Drowning Poolʼs stock and trade. Their music is an unapologetic celebration of lifeʼs joy and pain, able to swiftly maneuver between defiant declarations of resistance. Each distinctive era of the bandʼs history is represented onstage, where the band bashes through an arsenal of anthems all delivered with precision strength. “I cannot emphasize enough how much passion and energy they had on stage. Vocalist Jasen Moreno screamed his heart out. Bassist Stevie Benton never stopped moving and drummer Mike Luce kept the pace despite having his throne malfunction, tossing him off of the back of the riser and into the wall behind him” – Knac Drowning Pool burst onto the hard rock scene 15 years ago with their platinum selling debut album ʻSinnerʼ and remain to be relevant.
Heading to Australia to support their critically acclaimed new material ʻHellelujahʼ this is the album their diehard fans demanded and the aggressive heavy rock world at large deserved. Reenergized with the addition of fierce front man Jasen Moreno, proudly amongst the soul of Drowning Pool original members CJ Pierce, Stevie Benton and Mike Luce; this is a rebranded monster ready with teeth bared heading straight for the jugular! Australian / NZ fans have waited impatiently since their Big Day Out appearance in 2002 to witness crowd favorites such as ʻSinnerʼ, ʻStep Upʼ, ʻTear Awayʼ, ʻPityʼ and floor filler smash hit ʻBodiesʼ, this July fans will be treated to a hard hitting headline run. The Lone Star State conquerors deliver a heavy batch of hell raising anthems, each burning with fiery adrenaline destined to ignite crowds into impassioned sing-alongs.
