P.O.D. (Payable On Death)
Music comes down to passion,” says P.O.D. frontman Sonny Sandoval. “There are not a lot of bands out there today who have that. But I think that feeling is coming back around again.”
Passion has been front and center since the band formed in 1992 in San Diego, CA, and all the way up to the release of their eighth and latest record, Murdered Love. Over the last two decades, the group has sold over 10 million albums (including 2001’s triple platinum record Satellite), garnered four No. 1 music videos, three Grammy nominations and over a dozen rock radio hits, including “Southtown,” “Alive,” “Youth of the Nation” and “Goodbye For Now.” Music trends have come and gone, but P.O.D.’s fanbase has seemingly only grown stronger.
“I had been doing a lot of outreach to kids, talking at a lot of schools,” says the singer. “I see what they go through – suicide, rape, addiction –and that song is just about being vulnerable and honest. They’re wondering if they’re screw-ups, if they’re deserving of love and compassion. “ (Source)
After 20-plus years, ten full-length releases, countless sold out shows, and over one million albums sold worldwide, Nonpoint endure through sustaining an unbreakable bond among themselves and to a diehard fan base all over the globe.
Since their 1997 formation in Fort Lauderdale, FL, that mindset has fueled every move. 2000’s Statement lived up to its name, introducing a hypnotic hybrid of deft lyricism and crushing hooks evinced by the breakout single “What A Day.” Following Development in 2002, Recoil spawned a hyper-charged cover of Phil Collins’ “In The Air Tonight,” which went on to soundtrack a key moment of the 2006 Miami Vice blockbuster reboot starring Academy® Award winner Jamie Foxx. Meanwhile, To The Pain represented a high watermark. It impressively sold 130,000 copies stateside as “Bullet With A Name” and “Alive and Kicking” emerged as radio and concert staples.
In the end, Nonpoint will never stop, and the legacy only grows with X. “It’s probably our best record we’ve done musically,” Rivera leaves off. “There are elements of every album. We put it all on the line. I hope fans walk away satisfied.”
“Nonpoint is part of our DNA,” concludes Soriano. “Our families and friends all know how deep-rooted all of us are in this project. It’s defined us for over two decades. We’re pretty fucking lucky and blessed.” – Rick Florino, June 2018
