P.O.D. have entered a Los Angeles studio with producer Howard Benson (MOTÖRHEAD, COLD, REVEILLE, SEPULTURA) studio to begin work on the band's third album, due on Nov. 4 through Atlantic Records.
The forthcoming album will be the group's first since the departure of guitarist Marcos Curiel, who has been replaced with former LIVING SACRIFICE axeman Jason Truby. "Having Jason in our band adds a fresh new perspective and a different fire," bassist Traa told Rolling Stone.
Between thirty and fifty songs have been written for the upcoming CD, according to Traa. "We just want to have a lot of different stuff," he said, adding that the band will likely choose twelve for the album. "And there is a lot of different stuff."
After they finish recording, P.O.D. plan to do some club shows before their August 31 date at Colorado's Red Rocks, where they will share a bill with 50 CENT, KORN and THE DOORS 21ST CENTURY.
