DROWNING POOL have officially parted ways with their label Wind-Up Records, a source close to the band has confirmed to BLABBERMOUTH.NET. The Dallas, Texas-based act issued two albums through Wind-Up, each featuring a different lead singer: 2001's "Sinner" and 2004's "Desensitized".

DROWNING POOL's original vocalist, Dave Williams, was found dead on the band's tour bus in August of 2002 while the group was on the road with that summer's Ozzfest. An autopsy revealed that Williams died from cardiomyopathy, a heart muscle disease for which he was never diagnosed. His successor, Jason "Gong" Jones, lasted less than two years before he left the band and was replaced by former SOIL frontman Ryan McCombs.
