Quality video footage of DROWNING POOL performing the song "Bodies" last night (Friday, August 14) at the Riverbend Music Center in Cincinnati, Ohio (where the band was appearing as part of Crüe Fest 2) can be viewed below (courtesy of Hard Rock Hideout).
DROWNING POOL played a private show for the troops at Guantanamo Bay on Memorial Day, May 25. The invitation from the U.S. Navy came two years after the start of the "Soldiers" campaign.
"Any time we get the chance to play in front of the troops, it is a great honor and they're always the best crowds," said DROWNING POOL frontman Ryan McCombs. "When we got the call, we were like, 'Hell yeah, let's go rock Guantanamo Bay. It's a once-in-a-lifetime chance and I don't know of many artists that get an invitation like this."
After two years of supporting "Full Circle", DROWNING POOL is now taking part in the Crüe Fest 2 tour which stars MÖTLEY CRÜE and features additional support from GODSMACK, THEORY OF A DEADMAN, and introduces CHARM CITY DEVILS.
DROWNING POOL — Ryan McCombs (vocals),Pierce, Stevie Benton (bass) and Mike Luce (drums) — has overcome its fair share of adversity: tragedy, internal struggles, leaving their major record label and multiple incidents of theft over the last few years.
