While Drowning Pool may be best known for their hit song “Bodies,” the band have released a new track and say that it is a tribute to the late Vinnie Paul and Dimebag Darrell. “Mind Right” is a song off of the band’s upcoming album, titled Strike a Nerve.

Speaking to this song, band guitarist CJ Pierce shared the following:

“‘Mind Right’ started with the core Drowning Pool sound, then really dug into our southern metal roots. This song was written not long after Vinnie Paul died, as a tribute of sorts to him and Dime and a way for us to to honor the impact Pantera had on our local Dallas scene. It’s probably the heaviest song we’ve recorded, but it’s the perfect way to close Strike A Nerve; like the title of the song says, we all need to get our minds right. We need to see what’s going on around us, stand up for what we believe in, and always focus on the bigger picture. We can’t wait to play this one live!”
