The surviving members of DROWNING POOL have decided to carry on with the group following the death of frontman Dave Williams and are looking towards making new music and hiring a new singer.Guitarist C.J. Pierce told Launch that the Texas-based group "just started jamming again a week ago, writing new songs. We're gonna try to keep this thing going...try to find someone else who fits with us." According to Pierce, a number of aspiring singers have contacted DROWNING POOL's management to audition for Williams' spot, but at this point the group is only making a list of potential candidates. "We're not ready yet to bring somebody in — we're still getting used to the fact this is how it's gonna be," Pierce said. "The last couple days it's been easier. We've just been coming in with new material we like and getting excited about playing again. We know we're gonna work somebody in here pretty soon. It may take a few months it may take a few years. I hope it doesn't take long, 'cause I really love to play." Williams was found dead in a bunk on DROWNING POOL's tour bus on August 14th in Manassas, Virginia, while the band was on the road with Ozzfest 2002.
