Texas rockers DROWNING POOL have been touring in support of the reissued deluxe edition of their debut album, "Sinner", which was made available last month in a 2-disc format via The Bicycle Music Company/Concord. On their way through the great state of Nevada, the band stopped at Nellis Air Force Base in the Mojave Wasteland. A great time was had by all as the band hosted a huge meet-and-greet, honoring our active military and veterans.
In a statement, DROWNING POOL says: "It's always a pleasure for us to have the opportunity to support our troops. We've been fortunate this year on our 'Sinner' 'Unlucky 13th Anniversary' tour to hit a few bases across the county. Our recent visit to Nellis Air Force Base has definitely been one of the highlights. Such a great group of people that organized the visit, and like always, it was such an honor for us to sign and take pictures in support of our air man and their families. We appreciate the organizers at Nellis AFB for giving us the full tour! Besides our meet-and-greet/signing, we had the amazing opportunity to watch the Thunderbirds air show. Amazing! Insanely talented pilots. We look forward to future base visits and our continued support of our troops."
Lt. Jonathon Lee and Sgt. Anthony Caldwell commented on the visit before the band arrived, stating: "I think it's awesome of them to help us out and show their support for the military, and I can't wait to meet them, I think they are standup guys." Caldwell added, "I'm here to see DROWNING POOL and I think it's amazing that they are out here at Nellis AFB, pretty cool that they are supporting the troops."
