Craft Recordings Celebrates 20th Anniversary of Drowning Pool’s ‘Sinner’ on Vinyl

Craft Recordings keeps pumping out some great exclusives in 2021 including the debut album from Drowning Pool on vinyl for the first time.

Drowning Pool's Sinner 20th Anniversary Album

Craft Recordings is celebrating the 20th anniversary of Drowning Pool’s best-selling debut, Sinner, with the album’s first-ever vinyl release. The label has very busy in 2021 with best-selling reissues and Record Store 2021 exclusives.

Set for release on September 17, 2021, and available for pre-order today, the nu-metal classic features such favorites as “Tear Away,” “Sinner,” and the band’s platinum-selling signature hit “Bodies.”

In addition to the standard release, two special editions of the vinyl are available: a Revolver exclusive turquoise vinyl limited to 1,000 units and a band exclusive red vinyl limited to 666 units and only available through the band on their fall tour. 

Sinner is literally perfect. I remember hearing and seeing it all come together,” says Drowning Pool frontman Jasen Moreno.

Released in June 2001, Sinner became an instant classic, thanks largely to the success of its infectious first single, “Bodies.” The song hit the Top Ten on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock chart and No.3 on the UK’s Rock and Metal chart.

It also appeared across multiple TV shows, ads and films, and became the theme song for several WWE events. Sinner, meanwhile, peaked at No.14 on the Billboard 200 and was certified platinum by the RIAA just six weeks after its release. 

Additionally, Sinner earned wide critical acclaim. AllMusic called Drowning Pool “a welcome breath of fresh air,” adding that “Sinner shows Drowning Pool’s great potential.” Entertainment Weekly loved how the band members “just kick it old-school headbanger style, offering strangulated yowls, gut-punching bass lines, and ominous guitar riffs,” declaring, “dive in, metal maniacs.”

Drowning Pool Band Members

In addition to the vinyl release, Drowning Pool is also celebrating the 20th anniversary of their debut album with a new record label, new music, a forthcoming new album, and this fall’s “Brothers in Arms” tour alongside longtime friends Ill Nino and (Hed) P.E. The upcoming new release will be the band’s third studio album with frontman Jasen Moreno, whose 2013 Resilience debut recently achieved gold sales status, making it the band’s second gold record to follow their platinum debut.

Founding members C.J. Pierce (guitar), Stevie Benton (bass), and Mike Luce (drums) have played together for an uninterrupted 25 years, only further solidifying Drowning Pool’s presence as one of the new millennium’s premier hard rock / heavy metal crossovers.
