Murdered Love is P.O.D.’s first new album in four years and sees the band reunited with long-time producer Howard Benson who also produced the band’s massive Satellite album alongside hit albums for Kelly Clarkson, Theory Of A Deadman, Daughtry, and My Chemical Romance. The first single from the new album is currently #6 on the Active Rock Radio Charts and is P.O.D.’s highest charting radio song in over nine years. USA Today raves, ““SoCal rap-metal band brings back the boom after a four-year absence, sounding like the hook-laden harbinger of a spiritual apocalypse.” Revolver Magazinedecalres, “Still building big-chorus riff bombs designed to set off the youth of the nation…Murdered Loveis best when all the anthemic stuff comes equipped with the sort of infectious grooves that the band’s SoCal stomping ground is known for.”
