Drowning Pool have announced that Strike A Nerve, their first album in six years, will be released on September 30. The band also shared the album’s lead single, “Mind Right.”
“This record is so badass, it’s perfect. It’s the four of us doing what we do to the best of our abilities,” Drowning Pool singer Jasen Moreno says about the album, which will be released on CD, 180-gram vinyl and digital via T-BOY/UMe.
“The band is tight in every way. We’re firing off on all cylinders. We’re at the top of our game. There are all different ways of saying it, but it all amounts to the same thing – the results are just magic,” he added. “From the way the record sounds, to the writing of it, to the production, to the look of it – it’s just a perfect Drowning Pool record. None of us could ask for anything more.”
Speaking about the new song, guitarist C.J. Pierce said, “This song was written not long after Vinnie Paul died, as a tribute of sorts to him and Dime and a way for us to to honor the impact Pantera had on our local Dallas scene.”
“It’s probably the heaviest song we’ve recorded, but it’s the perfect way to close Strike A Nerve; like the title of the song says, we all need to get our minds right. We need to see what’s going on around us, stand up for what we believe in, and always focus on the bigger picture. We can’t wait to play this one live!,” he added.
The rock band is set to embark on a Fall tour in support the album on September 17 in Orlando, Florida.
