The two-disc set, carrying a list price of $19.99, is due Aug. 27, and will add three songs to the 15-track album. The bonus DVD will feature behind-the-scenes footage as well as four live tracks, all culled from the band's European tour earlier this year.
The "Satellite" bonus tracks include a "semi-acoustic" version of "Alive," as well as remixes of "Youth of a Nation" by Conjure One's Rhys Fulber (Front Line Assembly) and "Boom" by the Crystal Method. Both "Youth of a Nation" and "Alive" have reached the top-10 of Billboard's Mainstream Rock Tracks tally. The group is releasing the title track as the fourth single from the album, which will be sent to U.S. radio outlets in early August for airplay consideration.
The accompanying DVD will include live renditions of "Set It Off," "With Jah, Nothin'," "Youth of a Nation," and "Outkast," all filmed in Hamburg, Germany. It also features a look at the recording of "Satellite" and bios of all four band members.
In other P.O.D. news, the group recently garnered six nominations for the MTV Video Music Awards, tying the group with Eminem and Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott.
P.O.D. is currently on the road with Ozzfest, the launch of which, as previously reported, was postponed for a pair of dates earlier this month due to Sharon Osbourne's cancer surgery. The tour will run through September.
"Satellite" has sold more than 2.3 million units to date, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The album is currently No. 65 in its 45th week on The Billboard 200, having peaked at No. 6.
