Multi-platinum-selling Texas rockers Flyleaf and Drowning Pool will hit the road on a co-headline tour of the United States. It is a special run for the bands as it marks two new singers, welcoming Kristen May of Flyleaf and Jasen Moreno of Drowning Pool
The tour is first in support of their acclaimed third full-length album, New Horizons and the announcement comes a new single from Drowning Pool “Saturday Night,” which is already No. 38 on the active rock radio chart, even though the official impact date is Jan. 7.
About the impending dates, Flyleaf guitarist Sameer Bhattacharya exclaims, “We are excited for everyone to experience the powerful and inspiring voice of Kristen May as she joins us on stage.” Bassist Pat Seals echoes his excitement, “I cannot wait for these new songs to happen live for both longtime and new fans.”
Drowning Pool guitarist CJ Pierce adds, “We are excited as hell to get back out on the road and hang with our fellow Texas rockers Flyleaf. We have done some radio shows together in the past but this will be our first real run together. I know Flyleaf has great new line up and some amazing new tunes. We will be playing a killer mix of songs from our catalog and some new tunes as well. Looking forward to rocking out with everyone.”
Drowning Pool premiered “One Finger and a Fist,”another track from the upcoming album, on the WWE Slammy Awards Tuesday night.
Meanwhile, critical acclaim keeps pouring in for New Horizons. Alternative Press gave it 3-out-of-5 stars, ARTISTdirect.com called the new Flyleaf record their “Best album to date”, and Bloody-Disgusting extolled it as “fantastic.”
Flyleaf recently unveiled their official music video for “Call You Out”, which premiered on VEVO. For more of the latest news on Flyleaf including tour dates, head to their official site, as well as their Facebook and Twitter pages. The album can be purchased on iTunes and Amazon.
