The grand Texas in July has decided to call it quits. They last released Bloodwork in September, the first with new vocalist J.T. Cavey. The successful album allowed them to continue touring through the world. The Ephrata, PA-based band has announced a farewell tour beginning with dates in Europe, before returning home to support Gideon on a headlining run. Later in the year, they’ll perform a final headlining run across the U.S. to say goodbye to all their fans.

Drummer Adam Gray announced his feelings via press release:

I’ve had the best times of my life during the last eight years with this band. From years of playing for little to no audience – to stages and massive crowds all over the world I thought I would never experience. I’ve met some of the coolest people and am so thankful for all of the friendships I’ve made. It’s time to really dedicate my time to improving at my instrument and getting back to the drawing board. Thank you to all my fans and friends who have supported me and will continue to support me through whatever is next. I hope you see you all one last time on our European farewell tour. Thank you!

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."

HM contributing writer Danielle Martin talks with Seaway vocalist Ryan Locke about the band's new era, how they formed their sound for 2020, and why Harry Styles belongs in their lives.
