Coming off an extremely successful European tour, rock veterans P.O.D. will bring their acclaimed live show back to America. The tour supporting their most recent release, "Circles", will run from May 10 to June 9 all over the country. NONPOINT, ISLANDER, NINE SHRINES and HYRO THE HERO will provide support on various dates.
Singer Sonny Sandoval's longtime collaborators in P.O.D. — lead guitarist Marcos Curiel, bassist Traa Daniels and drummer Wuv Bernard — recently released their tenth studio album, "Circles", marking another leap forward. The band members decided to shake up their creative process by collaborating with an L.A.-based production duo called the Heavy, who provided behind-the-scenes musical tweaks, and served as a sounding board for vocal and melodic ideas. The results are contemporary-sounding without losing any of the band's core sonic signifiers.
"They're some of the most underrated musicians in our genre," Sandoval says of his bandmates. "They're all self-taught musicians. If you listen from demos 26 years ago to now, they just continue to get better and better. They continue to get more creative. My guys are players. They jam, they hear the music, they feel the music. They're musicians first and that really comes through in our live show."
"We are touring and making music because it still means something to the people that are coming out to see us, and people that are still listening to our music," he adds. "We're humbled, we're grateful, and we're thankful for people that still enjoy what we're doing."
