On May 23, Christian hard rockers P.O.D. (PAYABLE ON DEATH) performed an acoustic version of their new single, "Lost In Forever", live in the Buzz Acoustic Den in front of a small group of 102.9 The Buzz listeners in Nashville, Tennessee. Video footage of the performance can be seen below.
P.O.D.'s new album, "Murdered Love", will be released 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.
P.O.D.'s "Lost In Forever" can be seen below. The clip was shot in the California desert with director Spence Nicholson (BLEEDING THROUGH, THE BLED).
"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.
