Drowning Pool turned the world into believers with their breakthrough single "Bodies" in 2001. Ten years and four albums later, they gave fans a new reason to believe. "Feel Like I Do," the lead single from their self-titled fourth studio release [Eleven Seven Music, 2010], became the band's biggest radio hit to date, reaching No. 2 at Active Rock Radio, and remaining in the Top 5 for 12-weeks. With 2009's "37 Stitches" off of Full Circle reaching #4 at Active Rock and "Feel Like I Do," the band had 2 consecutive Top 5 Active Rock smashes and cemented their place as one of the top hard rock acts today. The band's sophomore album, Desensitized with second singer Jason Jones spawned a Top 10 hit with "Step Up." Recent successes have paved the way for unique opportunities such as presenting the Lane Evans Mental Health Care Reform to then-senator Barack Obama on Capitol Hill, performing for our troops all over the world and partnering with organizations like The Wounded Warrior Project and the G.I. Film Festival.
In an exclusive interview in the September 2012 issue of Guitar World magazine, Drowning Pool announced that fellow Texan Jasen Moreno is their new lead singer. The band's fifth album and their first with Moreno is due out early 2013. The band teamed up with producer Kato Khandwalla at House of Loud Studios in New Jersey as well as John Feldmann earlier this year, and will be finishing the album in Dallas.
Drowning Pool is C.J. Pierce – guitar/ vocals, Stevie Benton – bass/vocals, Mike Luce – drums/vocals and Jasen Moreno/vocals.
Eye Empire is an American rock supergroup, formed in 2009, consisting of former Dark New Day members Corey Lowery and B.C. Kochmit as well as Donald Carpenter formerly of Submersed. Garrett Whitlock, formerly of Submersed, and Dixie Duncan were Eye Empire's drummer and guitarist respectively from their formation until 2010. Drummer Will Hunt, Lowery and Kockmit's band mate in Dark New Day, joined the band in 2010 before departing in 2011, replaced by Ryan Bennett.
The band recorded their debut album entitled Moment of Impact in 2010 featuring contributions from Sevendust members Lajon Witherspoon and Morgan Rose. The album was given a limited release the same year, with a full release planned for 2011.
