    SoCal hard-rockers P.O.D. will release their ninth studio album, The Awakening, on August 21.


    Here are three reasons we are stoked about new P.O.D.

    • The album features 10 tracks and special guests Maria Brink from In This Moment and Lou Koller from Sick of It All. That's quite a cool pair of guest stars right there, from different genres and generations, not to mention genders.

    • "The Awakening is meant to be listened to in its entirety," says P.O.D. singer and lyricist Sonny Sandoval. "Every song ultimately explores a character dealing with life, making mistakes, fighting, trying. But we also live in a singles-type world, and it works on that level, too." So it's steeped in real life and life lived, and that always makes for the best type of album.

    • P.O.D. expertly mix rap and rock! As they get older, they get better.

    P.O.D. The Awakening Track Listing:

    1. Am I Awake

    3. Rise of NWO
    4. Criminal Conversations (feat. Maria Brink)
    5. Somebody's Trying to Kill Me
    6. Get Down
