P.O.D.’s Sonny Sandoval Has A Solo Reggae Album Completed


P.O.D. vocalist Sonny Sandoval has confirmed that he has a solo reggae album completed which he hopes to release at some point in the future. Work on that project commenced amid the pandemic lockdown, though scheduling conflicts with the latest P.O.D. album “Veritas” have kept that record on the shelf, for now.

A recent interview with Audio Ink Radio saw Sandoval discuss that record and its origins:

“I had started a whole reggae album by myself when I was home, because you couldn’t go anywhere. So I just did it at home and teamed up with a lot of different producers just online. I would just see their stuff, and I’d be, like, ‘Hey, send me some tracks.’ I was able to do everything. So I had planned to release that, actually, two years ago now, but then because our label and everybody was, like, ‘We really, really need a P.O.D. record,’ all that stuff got put on the back burner.

I’ve always been a reggae fan. I love reggae music. I think the scene is probably bigger now than ever. There’s tours all around the world now for reggae music. And so I think once we’re finished with [the touring cycle for] this [new P.O.D.] record and it starts to wind down, I’m definitely‚Ķ. I mean, I am gonna release either an EP or a full record. And then I would just love to play shows just locally and maybe jump on tour with some reggae bands just because I just love doing it.”

“I’m pretty much just sitting on it. And so now it’s, like, I just want people to hear that.”
