DROWNING POOL Drummer's DWI Caused Band To Be Turned Away At Canadian Border

May 14, 2004

DROWNING POOL drummer Mike Luce has admitted to Launch Radio Networks that a little problem from his past is what got the band turned back at the Canadian border earlier this week. "I had had, myself back in the past, a DWI (driving while intoxicated),so I had to get that taken care of and once it was finally done, it was all good. Here in America, you know, for whatever reason, that's considered a misdemeanor, but there, it's a felony, and once it was all finally figured out, then we were like, okay, we were able to take care of what it was and put everything back on track."

Luce said that the band plan to make up the Canadian shows in the near future.

DROWNING POOL are continuing to tour with DAMAGEPLAN in support of their newly-released second album, "Desensitized". Upcoming dates include:

May 14 - Spokane, WA - The Big Easy
May 15 - Boise, ID - The Big Easy
