In an interview with Guitar World magazine, guitarist C.J. Pierce stated, “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.”
