A decade ago, P.O.D. ruled radio, doling out hit after hit from 2001's massive album, 'Satellite.' The band's seamless blend of smart rock and rap was wrapped in melody. We're glad to report the band still has those irresistible melodic chops on 'Lost in Forever,' their latest single which will appear on their Razor and Tie debut. While the band has shifted labels and lost (and regained) guitarist Marcos Curiel over the years, their musical foundation remains strong and the same.
P.O.D. are back in the studio, working on their next album, which will be their first effort for Razor & Tie. The band has returned to its roots and has recruited producer Howard Benson to record the album. Working with Benson served the band well earlier in its career, as he twiddled the knobs for 2001's multi-platinum, hit-spawning 'Satellite' album, which was the band's mainstream breakthrough. The album included hit after hit, such as 'Alive' and 'Youth of the Nation.'
P.O.D. just hit the road as part of the 2011 Rock Allegiance Tour, which also features Papa Roach, Buckcherry, Puddle of Mudd, Crossfade, RED and Drive A. The trek will continue on through a Sept. 25 in Sacramento, Calif. For P.O.D.'s singer Sonny Sandoval, the tour is more than just a handful of bands performing for their fans ... it's more of a reunion of friends.
