P.O.D. Debuts New Track “Soundboy Killa” – Revised Tour Dates Announced

Grammy-nominated SoCal outfit P.O.D. has dropped a new track titled “Soundboy Killa”. You can hear the song below. Says frontman Sonny Sandoval of it:

“Rock ‘n roll has become entertainment that just says what the consumer wants to hear. There’s no more edge or rebellion that sets it apart from the norm. We choose to be us and write songs that we love playing rather than trying to keep up with trends or what’s hot on the scene. Lyrically, it’s a take off some of the old hip hop and reggae classics that I love. ‘Soundboy Killa‘ is classic P.O.D. guitar riff power, headbanging groove with the lyrical attitude and edge missing in today’s music.”

P.O.D. will be out on the “The Soundboy Killaz Tour” with Alien Ant Farm, Powerflo and Fire From The Gods this fall. Dates can be found below:

09/06 Halethorpe, MD – Fish Head Cantina
09/07 New York, NY – Gramercy Theater
09/08 Williamsburg, VA – DeVault Vineyards
09/09 Stanhope, NJ – Stanhope House

Warbeast Posts “Hitchhiker” Music Video

Warbeast just unveiled an official video clip for “Hitchhiker,” delivered as an eighteen-minute horror movie and coming by way of the band’s “Enter The Arena” full-length album (streaming in full here).

The clip, available below, is based on Edwin Neal’s character in the original Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Elaborates vocalist Bruce Corbitt: “I’ve actually had this idea of using Ed Neal for a music video for a long time. So after we knew for sure that we were going to include a song called ‘Hitchhiker’ on the new Warbeast album, the timing was right to make this old idea become a new reality.

“The lyrics for the song are based on Ed’s character from the original Texas Chain Saw Massacre. But this short film/music video is not related to that movie plot in any way. This is really just a silly script and a band having fun working on our final project together. Ed was a complete professional and great to work with and we are excited to have him starring in this.

“But like I said, this film isn’t to be taken serious I hope you have as much fun watching it as we had making it. Thanks to Michael Huebner and 12 Pound Productions for doing a great job filming and editing this video. I also got to give a shout-out to Lee Russell and Gas Monkey Live for allowing us to film the music portion of this film there.”
