P.O.D. Completes Work On New Album

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.
