DROWNING POOL Extends 'Soldiers' Dates

The Pulse of Radio (formerly Launch Radio Networks) reports: DROWNING POOL has extended its current "This Is For The Soldiers" tour, with the newly announced shows beginning on September 3 in Corpus Christi, Texas and ending on November 8 in New York City. THE EXIES will appear on the bill as well. As previously reported, 50 cents of each ticket sale from the jaunt is going to the non-profit organization Iraq & Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA), with another 50 cents going to the USO. DROWNING POOL is using the tour, as well as its new single "Soldiers", to draw attention to the crisis facing U.S. troops returning home from duty in the Middle East to inadequate health care.

The trek stops in Great Falls, Montana on Thursday (August 9).

The Texas-based band is campaigning to urge Congress to expand mental health care for returning troops and has launched a web site and petition about the issue at thisisforthesoldiers.org.

DROWNING POOL's new album, "Full Circle", came out on Tuesday (August 7).
