Drowning Pool recently shared “Choke,” a song from their upcoming album, Strike A Nerve.
The Texas hard rockers’ first record in six years, the album will be released on CD, 180-gram vinyl and digital on September 30 via T-BOY/UMe.
Drowning Pool had previously released the lead single “Mind Right.”
“‘Choke’ is another one of my favorite songs off Strike A Nerve,” guitarist CJ Pierce said of the melodic and heavy song.
“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,” he added.
Drowning Pool completed recording, mixing and mastering the 11-track album during the Covid lockdown.
