It's Official: Former SOIL Frontman Joins DROWNING POOL

In a widely anticipated move, former SOIL frontman Ryan McCombs has been officially named the new lead singer of DROWNING POOL.

McCombs made the announcement earlier today live on the Ft. Wayne, Indiana radio station 98.9 The Bear, where he had been co-hosting the morning show all week. Listen to the audio of his announcement at 989TheBear.com (MP3, 8 MB).

McCombs joins DROWNING POOL as the replacement for Jason "Gong" Jones, who left the band in early June.

The revamped DROWNING POOL will be making a one-off appearance at this year's Ozzfest on August 25 at the Smirnoff Music Center in Dallas, Texas. The band will perform on the main stage in front of their hometown crowd in what promises to be the group's debut live appearance with McCombs.
