Long known for carrying the hard rock torch with a positive message, P.O.D. are looking forward to sharing The Awakening with fans around the world. The album travels on a journey based on the good and bad choices of a central character, exploring the consequences of his decisions.
“The Awakening is meant to be listened to in its entirety,” says P.O.D. singer and lyricist Sonny Sandoval. “Every song ultimately explores a character dealing with life, making mistakes, fighting, trying. But we also live in a singles-type world, and it works on that level, too.”
P.O.D. are set to make a SoCal run during the album’s release week with three intimate shows, including the Mayan in Los Angeles on Thursday, August 20; House of Blues – Anaheim on Friday, August 21 (release day); and House of Blues – San Diego on Saturday, August 22. Additional tour dates below.
