According to Blabbermouth.net, Christian hard rockers P.O.D. (Payable On Death) have completed work on their new album for a summer release via Razor & Tie. The CD was recorded with longtime producer Howard Benson, who also helmed the group's massive "Satellite" CD and has worked on major hit releases for such artists as 3 Doors Down, Kelly Clarkson, Theory Of A Deadman, Daughtry, All-American Rejects, and My Chemical Romance.
P.O.D. will head out this spring and summer for a series of high-profile radio shows and festivals and will co-headline a tour with Red with support by Love And Death (featuring ex-Korn guitarist Brian "Head" Welch) and ICon For Hire. The tour will make stops throughout the Midwest and East Coast.
P.O.D.'s last album, "When Angels & Serpents Dance", sold 34,000 in the United States in its first week of release in April 2008 to debut at position No. 9 on The Billboard 200 chart.
The band's previous CD, "Testify", registered a first-week tally of just over 54,000 back in February 2006 to land at No. 9.
"When Angels & Serpents Dance" featured guest appearances from the Marley Sisters, Suicidal Tendencies singer Mike Muir and Helmet guitarist Page Hamilton.
