P.O.D. Begins Recording New Album With Producer HOWARD BENSON
Christian hard rockers P.O.D. (PAYABLE ON DEATH) have entered a Los Angeles-area studio with longtime producer Howard Benson to begin recording their new album for a tentative summer release. P.O.D. frontman Sonny Sandoval told All Access Live during this year's ShipRocked cruise(see video below) that he hopes to be done tracking the new CD in "four to six weeks." P.O.D.'s last release was "SoCal Sessions", a collection of acoustic versions of some of the band's most popular songs. The CD came out last November. A digital re-release of a special deluxe edition of P.O.D.'s latest studio album, "Murdered Love", was made available in October 2013. Highlights included two previously unreleased studio tracks, "Burn It Down" and "Find A Way" (recorded with Benson) and an acoustic version of the band's Top 5 hit "Beautiful". Additional tracks include an acoustic version of "West Coast Rock Steady", an alternate version of "On Fire" and "Lost In Forever (Scream)", plus various music videos and behind-the-scenes footage from the "Murdered Love" album cycle. "Murdered Love" saw P.O.D. reunited with Benson, who also produced the band's massive "Satellite" album as well as hit LPs for Kelly Clarkson, THEORY OF A DEADMAN, DAUGHTRY and MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE.
JUDAS PRIEST's RICHIE FAULKNER: 'We Think We've Got Another Record In Us'
JUDAS PRIEST guitarist Richie Faulkner was interviewed by U.K.'s Metal Hammer magazine during this year's Soundwave festival in Australia. You can now watch the chat below. Speaking about how JUDAS PRIEST was re-energized by his addition to the band following the departure of original lead guitarist K.K. Downing in 2011, Faulkner said: "The whole re-energizing thing, I can only take a fifth of the credit, really. The [rest of the] band, they've been doing it for forty years and they're so passionate about what they do. And, obviously, when you bring someone new into an outfit — a football team or a band — there's gonna be a slightly different dynamic. So that's the thing that's happened here. We went from the 'Epitaph' tour, and we got energized into doing a new record; we've done a new record, and then that energized you into going out and getting these new songs [into the setlist and performing them live on] the road. And then, in turn, you don't know what's gonna happen after this. We've talked about doing another record; we think we've got another record in us. And, no doubt, we'll be energized from the reception we're getting on the live circuit with this record around the world that, no doubt, we'll go in and do it again. I mean, I know we've got loads of ideas kicking around, and we've got the energy to do it, so you never know. Watch this space." JUDAS PRIEST's latest album, "Redeemer Of Souls", marks the band's first release with Faulkner, who was most recently guitarist in the backing group for Lauren Harris (daughter of IRON MAIDEN bassist Steve Harris). Asked by Premier Guitar if he was concerned how the new band dynamic with Faulkner would impact the writing process for "Redeemer Of Souls", JUDAS PRIEST guitarist Glenn Tipton said: "We hadn't worked with Richie before on a writing level, so the first couple of things he presented to us were quite crucial. It was amazing, because everything Richie came up with was just so PRIEST, and it evolved from that point on. For the first time ever, we actually wrote on the road. Richie would go down in the afternoon, set up his recording rig, and kick stuff out. When we had time off, we sat down and started piecing everything together. What we normally do is write our own ideas — including Rob's [Halford] lyrics and vocals — pool them, and before you know it, it takes shape into songs."
