Drowning Pool

Drowning Pool Premiere New Single “Choke”


Platinum-certified nü-metallers Drowning Pool have served up a new single by the name of “Choke“. It’s the second song to emerge from the band’s upcoming first new album in six years, “Strike A Nerve“. You can expect to hear that record on September 30th when it’s released via T-Boy/UMe.

For now, the band’s guitarist CJ Pierce had the following to say about this latest slice of it:

“‘Choke‘ is another one of my favorite songs off ‘Strike A Nerve‘. Musically, we really wanted to push ourselves to extremes on this album and venture outside our musical comfort zone with some of the songwriting and playing – like you hear on ‘Mind Right‘ – but ‘Choke‘ is a perfect mix of the more traditional Drowning Pool style and the foundation we laid on the ‘Sinner‘ record, and the ever-evolving band that we have become with Jasen Moreno.

Lyrically, ‘Choke‘ comes from a place where many of us have been before. It’s about when someone has given up on you, put you down, and speaks nothing but words of negativity and hate. But like we always do, we fight through, we persevere, and we ultimately overcome. We’re still here, we’re still thriving, and we’re not going anywhere. We’re strong, and we hope you choke on your words!”
