P.O.D. vocalist Sonny Sandoval has confirmed that the band is putting the finishing touches on a new album for a tentative late 2018 release. Regarding the musical direction of the new P.O.D. material, Sandoval revealed that the band worked with outside writers, saying, “We still wrote our music, but it was more open to change, or at least them adding kind of their feel to it . . . it’s fun, it’s catchy, and I definitely think it’s just P.O.D. 2018.” P.O.D.’s last studio effort, The Awakening, emerged in 2015.
