Author Arto Mäenpää - 22.3.2024

Renowned rock sensation P.O.D. — comprising Sonny Sandoval (vocals), Marcos Curiel (guitar), and Traa Daniels (bass) — is gearing up for the release of their 11th album, “Veritas,” slated to drop on May 3 via Mascot Records.

The band has just dropped the official music video for their newest single, “Lies We Tell Ourselves,” offering audiences a glimpse into their latest musical endeavor. Sandoval reflects:

“Everybody engages in self-deception! But the key is to recognize it and not let it consume you.”

Curiel elaborates:

“Just as hate contrasts with love, and death with life, lies oppose Veritas, which stands for truth. This song delves into the internal struggle and resilience that prevent us from succumbing to the falsehoods we tell ourselves. It’s about our personal battles and the pursuit of authenticity.”

Last autumn, Pod premiered the music video for “Drop,” featuring a powerful vocal appearance by Randy Blythe of Lamb of God. The track received rapid acclaim from various media outlets including Chaoszine, Metal Injection, Consequence, Revolver, Idioteq, The Pit, Yahoo!, and Knotfest. Following this success, they unveiled another electrifying single, “Afraid to Die,” featuring Tatiana Shmayluk, the vocalist of Jinjer. Together, these tracks have amassed an impressive seven million streams.

Curiel expresses the band’s anticipation, stating:

“We’re eager for our fans to experience the full album. We poured our hearts and souls into this record, and we’re immensely proud of the result. We look forward to connecting with our fans in person at upcoming shows. Thank you for your unwavering support; we truly cherish each and every one of you.”

“This album marks a significant milestone for us. The creative process behind it was truly inspiring, and we’re confident it could be our finest work to date.”

Daniels shares his enthusiasm, saying:

“I believe this will rank among my favorite Pod albums. The diversity of sound on this record is remarkable, yet it still retains that quintessential Pod vibe, rooted in the culture of Southern California.”
