According to HardDrive Radio, spiritual rockers P.O.D. (a.k.a. PAYABLE ON DEATH) have set "When Angels and Serpents Dance" as the title of their new album, due this fall via INO/Columbia. The CD is expected to feature a guest appearance by SUICIDAL TENDENCIES frontman Mike Muir.
A seven-minute video clip of P.O.D. singer Sonny Sandoval talking about the band's collaboration with Mike Muir can be viewed at YouTube.
A photo of Sandoval and Muir in the recording studio laying down tracks for the new P.O.D. CD, tentatively due in the fall, can be found at this location.
"It is an honor for us to have someone like Mike on this new album," Sandoval previously said.
The second part of the P.O.D. "warrior video podcast" featuring an interview with the group's guitarist Marcos Curiel has been posted at this location. Marcos talks about working with the band again and making music for this new album.
P.O.D.'s New Year's Eve performance in Times Square marked guitarist Marcos Curiel's first appearance with P.O.D. in nearly four years.
Curiel parted ways with the Christian rap-rockers in February of 2003 and later slammed the band, telling MTV.com, "With P.O.D., things were supposedly handled in the name of God, but they were actually handled in the name of greed."
He went on to form a new band called THE ACCIDENT EXPERIMENT, while P.O.D. recruited ex-LIVING SACRIFICE axeman Jason Truby to play on its last two studio albums, 2003's "Payable On Death" and 2005's "Testify". Truby exited the group once Curiel's return was made official.
"Greatest Hits: The Atlantic Years", P.O.D.'s final release through Atlantic Records, arrived in stores in November. It features the brand new track "Going in Blind".
