P.O.D. is back with a new single and a tour about to begin. “Soundboy Killa” made its debut this week via AltPress, and will be available for purchase beginning September 8, 2017. The track debut arrived with a new lyric video, viewable below. About the song, P.O.D. frontman Sonny Sandoval says, “Rock & 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. 'Soundboy Killa' is classic P.O.D. guitar riff power, head banging groove with the lyrical attitude and edge missing in today's Rock & Roll.” Check it out below...

"Remember that 'break' we were taking? Well... we lied." That's what Dave Grohl had to say this morning as news broke that FOO FIGHTERS will release a new album entitled Concrete and Gold on September 15th. In a letter posted on the band's official site, Grohl calls it a "gigantic rock record," and if the recent "surprise" single "Run" is an indicator, it will be. In fact, I think "Run" is one of the best songs of 2017, and it's the one that has officially turned The Rock Daughters™ (5 & 8) into full-fledged Foo Fighters fans.
If you're looking for something on the noisier side of the spectrum to kick off the week, check out "Seizure and Desist" - the new music video for the second single from the forthcoming self-titled debut from DEAD CROSS, which premiered via Loudwire.
