Nu Metal Bands Drowning Pool & Ill Niño Announce Shows in Bozeman & Missoula

Platinum certified nu metal band Drowning Pool and metalcore outfit Ill Niño will bring their Brothers In Arms Tour to Montana for two shows in 2021. They’ll be rocking at The ELM in Bozeman on October 25th and The Wilma in Missoula on October 26th. Both shows will also feature support from Hed PE and Evolution Empire.

Heavy rock fans have been begging for some metal music to roll through the area, so this announcement should make people pretty stoked. We can’t recall the last time most of these bands were in Montana, but we do remember when Drowning Pool stopped at the Wilma in 2017.

With four heavy bands set for each night, folks better come prepared for full throttle, high-octane performances.

About Drowning Pool

Giant riffs, crowd moving grooves and monstrous vocals are the tools with which DROWNING POOL build triumph out of tragedy, steadily evolve without compromise, and remain true to their supporters with over a decade’s worth of remarkable fortitude and attitude. H​ELLELUJAH is absolutely the album their diehard fans demanded and the aggressive heavy rock world at large deserved.

The platinum­plus conquerors from The Lone Star State deliver their heaviest batch of hell raising anthems, each burning with fiery adrenaline destined to light the radio ablaze and ignite crowds into impassioned sing­alongs. Only a few seconds into the album’s first single, “By the Blood,” it’s evident that H​ellelujah is t​he most aggressive, ambitious, and truly definitive Drowning Pool album since S​inner​, the platinum platter that gave the world Top 20 rock radio hit “Tear Away” and the massively successful “Bodies.”

It doesn’t get more brazenly defiant than Drowning Pool H​ellelujah b​angers like “We Are the Devil,” “Goddamn Vultures,” or “Push”: forward thinking modern rock anthems incorporating classic elements of brutal grooves with melodic power that never once sounds weak. C.J. Pierce’s guitar work is devastatingly crunchy yet dynamically colorful, locking in perfect sync with the charging rhythms of fellow cofounders Stevie Benton on bass and Mike Luce on drums, as Jasen Moreno’s vocals forge venom and bile into hooks.
