P.O.D. stream Maria Brink collab

P.O.D. have issued a stream of their track Criminal Conversations featuring In This Moment’s Maria Brink.

It’s lifted from their ninth studio album The Awakening which also features Sick Of It All’s Lou Koller. It’s out on August 21 via T-Boy/UMC and is available to pre-order.

P.O.D. bassist Traa Daniels said: “The Awakening is definitely an evolution from where we’ve come from. It’s this amazing piece of art that we’ve been able to put together as four guys who are like brothers. This is really special.”

The band have a run of shows scheduled over the coming weeks, starting in Colombia on August 16.
