Letting the music dictate the course of the band is always a gamble. For most, it can end the band. For some, it’s their way.
Sonny Sandoval (vocals), Marcos Curiel (guitar), Traa Daniels (bass), and Wuv Bernardo (drums) have been on a journey as artists and brothers for a long time. Even though Marcos took some time off and Traa came in a few years after the launch, Payable on Death (P.O.D.), wouldn’t be the same without these four together making music. The Awakening, for now, is the latest studio album that was released by the band in August of 2015.
The festival season is starting to awaken from its slumber over the winter (check local listings) and it looks to be a busy time for the guys. Rumors have been circulating about new material from P.O.D., and we may have the closest thing to confirmation to that at the time this interview took place. In additional to the typical questions, we managed to get two quick National Rock Review fans’ questions into Marcos to answer. And, if you don’t think there will be anything good on this interview, you’re way wrong. Just to imagine the face of Sharon Osbourne as you hear the story of Ozzfest is worth the wait.
