Flyleaf + Drowning Pool To Showcase New Vocalists on 2013 U.S. Tour
Two rock bands will put their newly chosen singers vocalists on display when they team up for a 2013 tour. Earlier this year, Flyleaf announced that Kristen May would front the band, taking over for Lacey Sturm who left after recording of the group's 'New Horizons' album. Meanwhile, Drowning Pool are touring in support of their first album with new frontman Jasen Moreno. The as-yet-untitled disc just yielded the single 'Saturday Night.'
The trek launches Feb. 21 in Philadelphia and runs for a full month through March 24. Flyleaf guitarist Sameer Bhattacharya says, "We're excited for everyone to experience Kristen May's powerful and inspiring voice as she joins us onstage." Bassist Pat Seals adds, "I can't wait for these new songs to happen live for both longtime and new fans."
Drowning Pool guitarist CJ Pierce adds about the tour, "We're excited as hell to get back out on the road and hang with our fellow Texas rockers Flyleaf. We've done some radio shows together in the past but this will be our first real run together. I know Flyleaf has a great new lineup and some amazing new tunes. We'll be playing a killer mix of songs from our catalogue and some new tunes as well. Looking forward to rocking out with everyone."
In addition to 'Saturday Night,' Drowning Pool also served up a preview track called 'One Finger and a Fist' during the WWE Slammy Awards earlier this week. The song is available as a free download for a limited time here. Get it now.
