Show Preview: Drowning Pool (with interview of guitarist C.J. Pierce)

Resilience. The aptly named album title of Texas metal band Drowning Pool's latest upcoming release describes the bands tenacious grasp on the music scene for the past decade. Not a band to sit quietly and fade in to history, they've endured multiple challenges, including the sudden and unexpected passing of their original singer Dave Williams, over the years. Their first release with new singer Jasen Moreno carries on the Drowning Pool sound, with the remaining original members CJ Pierce, Stevie Benton, and Mike Luce bringing the wall of sound that has defined them since their inceptions. Keeping true to their roots they're ready to unleash their new album on April 2nd and heading out on to the road in North America for a short winter tour with Flyleaf, then overseas to Europe with Fozzy. Guitarist C.J Piece killed some time with me over the phone recently to discuss the new CD, their tour, Hummers and food. Drowning Pool will be hitting Detroit at Saint Andrews Hall on March 9th, 2013. Tickets available here.
