Sevendust, Drowning Pool Team Up For Tour

Bands' 21-date trek begins August 21 in Athens, Georgia, ends September 19 in Corpus Christie, Texas.

Sevendust and Drowning Pool will hit the road together for a month-long trek beginning August 21 in Athens, Georgia.

After working its way through the Northeast, the 21-date tour dips into Canada and the Midwest before winding down September 19 in Corpus Christi, Texas, according to Drowning Pool's publicist at Wind-Up Records.

Atlanta quintet Sevendust pack their bags for the trip after polishing off Animosity, the band's third LP (see "Sevendust Harbor Hard Feelings On Animosity"). The follow-up to 1999's Home is expected in late October.

Following a successful stint on Ozzfest (see "Drowning Pool Making A Big Splash On Ozzfest"), Drowning Pool will shoot a video for "Tear Away," a song on their debut album, Sinner, August 17-19 in Los Angeles, their publicist said. Though "Bodies" is still rotating comfortably on rock radio, the track is expected to be the Dallas quartet's next single. "Bodies" director Glen Bennett (Pennywise) will helm the clip.
