Drowning Pool announce Jasen Moreno as their new vocalist
have now confirmed, after much speculation, that their new lead singer will be Jasen Moreno. Jasen is currently on tour with the band and will now feature on their upcoming album.
Moreno comments: “I am extremely happy and very grateful to be a part of the Drowning Pool family. Everyone’s been so welcoming, especially the fans. I can’t praise them enough. They’ve made me feel right at home. This first run of live shows couldn’t have gone any better!”
Guitarist C.J. Pierce also commented: “It’s been a pleasure working with Jasen. He’s everything we hoped for in a singer and he jumped right in, stepped up to the plate and got straight to work. Jasen has brought not only a new voice but a new fire to the Drowning Pool sound and we can’t wait to share the new music with everyone.”
Drowning Pool’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 earlier this year, and will be finishing the album in Dallas.
