Drowning Pool’s “Sinner” Set For 20th Anniversary Vinyl Release


Drowning Pool‘s platinum-certified 2001 debut album “Sinner” will receive its first-ever vinyl release in celebration of its 20th anniversary. This new pressing of the album will be made available on September 17th through Craft Recordings.

The band’s current frontman Jasen Moreno commented of that:

“‘Sinner‘ is literally perfect. I remember hearing and seeing it all come together. We shared the local Dallas scene back then—Drowning Pool and an old band I used to be in—and I’d like to say we kept each other honest and made each other better through competition… but it was never even close.

Dave [Williams, late Drowning Pool vocalist] and the guys were the dudes shaping the scene. I shared many stages with Drowning Pool before I was ever their lead singer, and I remember feeling hyped after each performance. I remember believing we’d finally upstaged them. I would have that hope right up until they took the stage and began to play, and then the truth was evident—Dave, Stevie, C.J., and Mike were always multiple steps ahead of any other band on the scene.

The ‘Sinner‘ album was magic, and the guys were on fire. I believe that the record is perfect as a whole, full of catchy hooks both vocally and musically. I heard and saw those songs before a million other people around the world did, and I knew back then that Drowning Pool was destined to win. It feels crazy to go from a hater to their frontman, but let that be my testimony to the undeniable force that remains ‘Sinner‘.”

Drummer Mike Luce:

“To be here marking twenty years of ‘Sinner‘ is just mind-blowing. There are so many memories of this record that I’ll carry for life. It would require a book to properly express all that’s in my head and heart and all that led up to and came out of its release. As a kid growing up and playing drums, I dreamed of being in a band with my buds and maybe someday putting out a record. Well, we did – and it kicked ass! Thanks to all that allowed this messed-up, work-in-progress of a soul to live a dream.”

Guitarist C.J. Pierce:

“I can’t believe it’s been two decades since we introduced the world to ‘let the bodies hit the floor’ and helped teach young kids and parrots around the world to count to four. Some of the greatest times and best memories of my life are from when ‘Sinner‘ came out, so this vinyl release is really special. We can’t wait to see everyone out at the shows again, and we’re looking forward to rocking all these songs, and our newest songs live!”
