The group is working on 17 tunes for the set, P.O.D.'s first with new guitarist Jason Truby. As previously reported, Truby stepped in for guitarist Marcos Curiel after the latter left the band earlier this year.
"Payable on Death" is being produced by Howard Benson, who also helmed the group's 2001 breakthrough "Satellite." That album debuted at No. 6 on The Billboard 200 and has sold more than 2.5 million copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.
"There's a certain quiet confidence in this band right now," Benson said. "They really know who they are. It's a magical moment. The whole team here can feel it. This record is going to touch their listeners' souls like only great career artists can do."
P.O.D. is currently enjoying success with the single "Sleeping Awake," drawn from Maverick's soundtrack to "Matrix Reloaded." The track is No. 15 this week on Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks airplay chart.
As previously reported, P.O.D. is among the artists confirmed for the Coors Light Mountain Jam, to be held Aug. 30 at Red Rocks outside Denver.
