Drowning Pool Parts Ways with Singer Ryan McCombs

Drowning Pool have announced that singer Ryan McCombs has left the band. McCombs had been the vocalist since taking over from Jason Jones in 2005, who joined the band following the death of original frontman Dave Williams.

“We have always been a band who has gained success despite having multiple singers…maybe we suffer from reverse ‘lead singer’s disease,'” guitarist C.J. Pierce says. “Changing things up has not always been easy, but the band has become reenergized time and time again. We are looking to find a new singer who will give both us and, and most importantly our fans, the new adrenaline shot they deserve. We do wish Ryan great success in his future endeavors.”

While the band actively seeks a new singer, they have already begun writing their fifth album in their hometown of Dallas.

    Why is he leaving…does anyone know…he was awesome for them in my opinion…tear away is one of my favorite songs and watching him perform it was an experience I won’t forget. Whatever the reason, drowning pool lost an asset.. Good luck Ryan.

    I hope things work out for Drowning Pool. I have to say, I am glad Ryan is back with Soil.  The other singer wasn’t so great.
