Mike Luce: Drums/vocals

The all-American anthemic rock band Drowning Pool has persevered through the death of their first singer and losing their second, emerging a stronger unit than ever before. From presenting the Lane Evans Health Act to then Senator Barack Obama, and coming back with their first consecutive album with a singer, vocalist Ryan McCombs, Drowning Pool continue to survive.

On a scale from 1 to 10, when measuring the highs and lows of Drowning Pool’s 12-year career, drummer Mike Luce candidly states that the band has experienced both extremes. When success comes — and it often does — it’s euphoric, he says. But when there were crashes — and there were a few —“You pick up and move on. It isn’t easy, but it’s life. The highs and lows make you appreciate everything that’s good. Stuff happens, terrible stuff, to everybody. You try to use it somehow to make something good come out of it.”

“To use a Spinal Tap reference, at the highest times we were cranked up to 11,”  Luce says. “It was the greatest. We were all young, and we’d wanted this all our lives. To play music with your friends for a living — it’s better than winning the lottery. These are dreams and aspirations that I’d had since I first held a pair of drumsticks in my hand. We got lucky, we were on Cloud Nine — to be the Ozzfest darlings, in Rolling Stone, on MTV. We felt like the band was on its way to world domination. Nobody sees the black cloud around the corner.”

The tour kicks off in their home town of Dallas, Tx.  If you would like to the chance to hang with the band, an autographed set list, a $5 gift card to DrowningPool.com store, a killer Drowning Pool T-Shirt and a collectible Drowning Pool Laminate and Lanyard!

These all-American anthemic rockers are only getting stronger by the song though, persevering with each riff. Raise your hands if you feel like I do – Like we do – Like we all do!—Rick Florino
