Southern California hard rockers P.O.D. have released the official music video for their new single, “Drop”
“‘Drop’ is another one-of-a-kind, unparalleled banger that sets this band apart from everyone else,” says P.O.D. vocalist Sonny Sandoval. “When you hear it, you know it’s P.O.D.!”
“Dude, it’s the sickest thing ever,” P.O.D.‘s Marcos Curiel says of “Drop”, which was inspired by the guitarist’s longtime love of electronic music. “When that drop hits, everyone knows it,” he adds. “We needed to create a song in that way… P.O.D. style.”
The band’s most recent album, “Circles,” made its debut in November 2018 through the Mascot Label Group. For this release, the band collaborated with the Los Angeles-based production duo known as the Heavy, comprised of Jason Bell and Jordan Miller. Their collaboration ensured that the album maintained a contemporary sound while preserving the core sonic elements that define P.O.D.
In September 2021, the band released the “Satellite: 20th Anniversary Edition” as both a double-CD and digital offering. This special release coincided with the album’s official anniversary and featured a total of 27 songs. It included a newly remastered version of the original album, as well as a curated selection of rarities, remixes, and four previously unreleased demos, one of which was the “Alive (Semi-Acoustic Version).” A few weeks later, the “Satellite: 20th Anniversary Edition” was also made available on vinyl as a double-LP, part of Rhino‘s Rocktober campaign.
Upon its initial release, “Satellite” entered the Billboard 200 chart at No. 6 and went on to sell over seven million copies globally, with three million of those sales in the United States alone. The album spawned four hit singles: the title track, “Alive,” “Youth Of The Nation,” and “Boom.” In addition to its commercial success, “Satellite” earned P.O.D. three Grammy nominations: “Best Hard Rock Performance” for “Alive” (2002), “Best Metal Performance” for “Portrait” (2003), and “Best Hard Rock Performance” for “Youth Of The Nation” (2003).
The “Satellite: 20th Anniversary Edition” includes a bonus disc featuring B-sides such as “Critic” and “Sabbath,” initially released in Europe, along with remixes of “Boom” by THE CRYSTAL METHOD and “Youth Of The Nation” by Mike$Ki.
