P.O.D. To Release Acoustic Album Featuring Hits, New Songs

Christian hard rockers P.O.D. (PAYABLE ON DEATH) have announced a pre-order for their upcoming album through their partnership with PledgeMusic. The San Diego-based band will make its new effort available on the direct-to-fan platform. The band chose to work with PledgeMusic so fans could receive updates directly from the band during the album making process, offering them behind-the-scenes access and a chance to pre-order early.

In response to requests, P.O.D. will deliver the upcoming acoustic album, which will include favorite hits "Youth Of The Nation" and "Alive" along with two brand new songs. Just for pledgers, P.O.D. will offer a number of exclusive, limited-edition and one-of-a-kind items available such as signed CDs and tour memorabilia.

Celebrating five years of engaging music lovers, PledgeMusic has proven to be a valuable marketing force for bands and artists releasing music, playing an important role in driving sales and contributing to their overall achievements. Benji Rogers, founder and president of PledgeMusic commented, "We are thrilled that P.O.D., who have enjoyed a strong fanbase for years, has chosen the PledgeMusic platform to further connect with their fans to release this special collection of songs."

A special deluxe edition of P.O.D.'s latest album, "Murdered Love", was made available digitally in October 2013 via iTunes. Highlights included two previously unreleased studio tracks, "Burn It Down" and "Find A Way" (recorded with producer Howard Benson) and an acoustic version of the band's Top 5 hit "Beautiful". Additional audio tracks included an acoustic version of "West Coast Rock Steady", an alternate version of "On Fire" and their #1 song "Lost In Forever (Scream)" plus various music videos and behind-the-scenes footage from the "Murdered Love" album cycle.

"Murdered Love" was released on July 10, 2012 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.
