P.O.D. Are Trying To Crowdfund An Acoustic Album


P.O.D. have admittedly not been as popular in recent years as they were a decade ago, but that is not stopping the band behind The Fundamental Elements Of Southtown from attempting to crowdfund a brand new release.

A PledgeMusic campaign has been launched to fund the first-ever acoustic album from P.O.D. The record is slated for release this September and will reportedly feature classic tracks along with a few brand new recordings. You can donate to the campaign–which at the time of this post was 19% toward their goal–here.

Writing to fans about their plans, P.O.D. offered:

We originally got the idea after doing a number of radio shows and radio stations asking us to perform acoustic. We were a bit hesitant at first, but after great fan reaction, we wanted to do a whole acoustic album. We’ve been hard at work in the studio and have already finished over half of the album. We’ve been having a lot of fun with it and it’s got a really raw, stripped down feel to it.

You guys have made P.O.D. what we are today with all your love and support. We want you to be a part of this new album process and be able to see and hear as it happens. We’ve raided the P.O.D. vault and brought out a number of exclusive, limited edition and one-of-a-kind items available to include with your pre-order. Check them out below and we can’t wait for you all to hear the album!

The page makes it seem like the album will come out regardless of how much money is raised, but those who donate will receive early access to the record. The band has not announced any plans to tour or perform a completely acoustic show, but depending on the success of this campaign I think a string of ‘unplugged’ gigs is well within the realm of possibilities.
