Drowning Pool shares ‘Choke’ from upcoming album ‘Strike a Nerve’

Drowning Pool has shared “Choke,” the second song released from its upcoming album “Strike a Nerve,” which is due on Sept. 30, 2022, via T-BOY/UMe. Described in a press release as the band’s “heaviest record to date,” the album will be released on CD, 180-gram vinyl and digitally, and is available for pre-order here.

“’Choke’ is another one of my favorite songs off ‘Strike a Nerve,’” guitarist CJ Pierce said. “Musically, we really wanted to push ourselves to extremes on this album and venture outside our musical comfort zone with some of the songwriting and playing–like you hear on ‘Mind Right’–but ‘Choke’ is a perfect mix of the more traditional Drowning Pool style and the foundation we laid on the Sinner record, and the ever-evolving band that we have become with Jasen Moreno. Lyrically, ‘Choke’ comes from a place where many of us have been before. It’s about when someone has given up on you, put you down, and speaks nothing but words of negativity and hate. But like we always do, we fight through, we persevere, and we ultimately overcome. We’re still here, we’re still thriving, and we’re not going anywhere. We’re strong, and we hope you choke on your words!”
