P.O.D. (Payable on Death), which has sold more than 10 million albums since it formed in 1992, joins the tour in support of their summer release, “Murdered Love” (Razor & Tie). 

The album 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.
