On ‘Circles’, theycollaborated with an L.A.-based production duo calledthe Heavy, who ensured the album is contemporary-sounding without losing any of the band's core sonic signifiers. "On Circles, we didn't limit ourselves and say, 'Hey, we need to please the metal crowd, or the hardcore crowd, or the punk crowd,'" says frontman Sandoval."We just wanted to play and write songs that we hope are relevant and catchy to a new audience—while, at the same time, still being true to ourselves.""We're looking for answers—and we're going to people to help us get through things—but at the same time, no one's perfect," Sandoval says. "Everybody's going through stuff, and we're all kind of on this same level and the same journey of experience and just trying to figure out our course of life."The idea of searching for a bright side has been aconstant theme for P.O.D. over the years andthrough it all, the members of P.O.D.—Sandoval, lead guitarist Marcos Curiel, bassist Traa Daniels anddrummer Wuv Bernardo—have leaned on one another for support and creative inspiration. "We are touring andmaking music because it still means something to the people that are coming out to see us, and people that are still listening to our music," Sandoval says. "We're humbled, we're grateful, and we're thankful for people that still enjoy what we're doing."
