Christian hard rockers P.O.D. (PAYABLE ON DEATH) will release their new album, "Murdered Love", on July 10 via Razor & Tie. The band's long-awaited follow-up to "When Angels & Serpents Dance" sees them reunited with longtime producer Howard Benson, who also produced the group's massive "Satellite" album as well as hit CDs for Kelly Clarkson, THEORY OF A DEADMAN, DAUGHTRY, THE ALL AMERICAN REJECTS and MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE. The CD cover and packaging was illustrated and designed by Invisible Creature, whose previous credits include the FOO FIGHTERS, NORMA JEAN, Chris Cornell and many more.
The album's first official single, "Lost In Forever", is available for download on iTunes and you can listen to a stream of the song below.
The band recently shot a music video for "Lost In Forever" in the California desert; the clip is in post-production now and expected for release later in the month.
"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.
