P.O.D. front man Sonny Sandoval sends thanks to fans, “”We’re just thankful for all the love coming our way.”
“’Lost In Forever’ was one of the first demos we heard from P.O.D. when we first met with the band over a year ago. We immediately felt it could be a great first look to begin their re-introduction to Radio. Seeing it go to all the way to #1 is a thrill for all of us, adds John Franck Senior Vice President Marketing Razor & Tie. “We congratulate P.O.D. on this great achievement and also Razor & Tie’s SVP of Promotion Kurt Steffek for leading the charge on the label’s behalf.”
Murdered Love is P.O.D.’s long-awaited follow-up to When Angels & Serpents Dance. The album sees the band reunited with long-time producer Howard Benson who also produced the band’s massive Satellite album alongside hit albums for Kelly Clarkson, Theory Of A Deadman, Daughtry, and My Chemical Romance.
P.O.D. is currently on the third annual Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival alongside multiplatinum rock bands Shinedown, Godsmack, Staind and Papa Roach. The tour wraps on September 30th in Albuquerque, NM (full tour dates below).

Murdered LovePress Raves:
“Still building big-chorus riff bombs designed to set off the youth of the nation…Murdered Love is best when all the anthemic stuff comes equipped with the sort of infectious grooves that the band’s SoCal stomping ground is known for.” – Revolver Magazine
“SoCal rap-metal band brings back the boom after a four-year absence, sounding like the hook-laden harbinger of a spiritual apocalypse. The mix of metal, dub and hip-hop recalls 1999’s The Fundamental Elements of Southtown and 2001’s Satellite.” – USA Today
“…On the best form since their breakthrough album and career highlight, Satellite.” – Metal Hammer
“The songs all bear the band’s trademark heavy groove that is nicely accentuated by Sonny Sandoval’s unique rap-influenced delivery..the ultra-melodic tunes “Higher” and “Lost In Forever”, for me they have the perfect blend of heaviness and melody. Murdered Love is the band’s best effort in many years.” – Puregrainaudio
“Murdered Love is purportedly a back to basics affair that finds the band re-investigating their initial influences of rap, punk rock, and reggae.”- AllMusic
“P.O.D. comes out swinging like the four riders of the apocalypse… Murdered Love is a return to the bare-knuckled, breakdown-laced fusion of hip-hop, hardcore and ska-rock found on the multi-platinum Satellite.” – Google Music
