POD_2014P.O.D. (Payable On Death) have entered a Los Angeles-area studio with longtime producer Howard Benson to begin recording their new album for a tentative summer release. P.O.D. frontman Sonny Sandoval told All Access Live during this year’s ShipRocked cruise (see video below) that he hopes to be done tracking the new CD in ‘four to six weeks.’

P.O.D. Hoobastank and Alien Ant Farm will head over for a joint tour this May. The three US rock bands will head to London, Wolverhampton, Nottingham, Plymouth, Reading, Wrexham, Bristol, Cardiff, Manchester and Southampton between May 7 and 17.

Speaking about the tour, POD‘s Marcos said: ‘We are so looking forward to crossing the Atlantic Ocean and rocking out for our fellow mates. In the legendary words of Grand Funk Railroad, ‘We’re an American band, We’re comin’ to your town, We’ll help you party it down, We’re an American band.”

P.O.D.‘s last release was “SoCal Sessions”, a collection of acoustic versions of some of the band’s most popular songs. The CD came out last November.

A digital re-release of a special deluxe edition of P.O.D.‘s latest studio album, “Murdered Love”, was made available in October 2013. Highlights included two previously unreleased studio tracks, ‘Burn It Down’ and ‘Find A Way’ (recorded with Benson) and an acoustic version of the band’s Top 5 hit ‘Beautiful’. Additional tracks include an acoustic version of ‘West Coast Rock Steady’, an alternate version of ‘On Fire’ and ‘Lost In Forever (Scream)’, plus various music videos and behind-the-scenes footage from the “Murdered Love” album cycle.

“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.

“Murdered Love” is P.O.D‘s first new album in four years, “Murdered Love”, was released on July 10th 2012 on Razor & Tie.
