P.O.D‘s first new album in four years, Murdered Love, was released on July 10th 2012 on Razor & Tie.
Earlier this month P.O.D released their new music video for the song Murdered Love from their new studio album.

Murdered Love is P.O.D‘s long-awaited follow-up to When Angels & Serpents Dance. Murdered Love sees the band reunited with long-time producer Howard Benson who also produced the band’s massive Satellite album alongside hit albums for Kelly Clarkson, Theory Of A Deadman, Daughtry, and My Chemical Romance.
The CD cover and packaging was illustrated and designed by Invisible Creature, whose previous credits include the Foo Fighters, Norma Jean, Chris Cornell and many more.
P.O.D will join the third annual Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival this summer alongside multiplatinum rock bands Shinedown, Godsmack, Staind and Papa Roach. The tour kicks off on August 18th in Kansas City, MO and wraps on September 30th in Albuquerque, NM [full tour dates below].
