Drowning Pool - Part Ways With Singer


US alternative metallers Drowning Pool announced today that they will be parting ways with their current singer, Ryan McCombs. The hard working Texas band, who has worked with 3 singers in their 10 year career, issued the following statement: "We have always been a band who has gained success despite having multiple singers... maybe we suffer from reverse 'lead singer's disease," said C.J. Pierce.

"Changing things up has not always been easy, but the band has become re-energized time and time again. We are looking to find a new singer who will give both us and, and most importantly our fans, the new adrenaline shot they deserve. We do wish Ryan great success in his future endeavors."

"McCombs, who had been part of the band since 2006, replaced singer Jason Jones, who joined Drowning Pool following the tragic passing of Dave Williams. Drowning Pool is currently looking to find a suitable replacement for McCombs. In the meantime, they have already begun writing their 5th studio album in their hometown of Dallas."

Yeah, actually I do. I liked SOiL with McCombs and I like the Drowning Pool albums with him as a singer as well. So I hope he's joining SOiL again.

So... Korn, Disturbed, Trivium and Killswitch Engage are awesome, but Drowning Pool suck?

I like the thing that Drowning Pool parted their way with Ryan, I expected that when they planned on working on their forth album. The thing is that the Full Circle was a great hard rock album, but with the self-titled one... that was just a step down.
