While it prepares for the release its upcoming studio album, “Testify,” rock act P.O.D. will tide fans over with “The Warriors EP Vol. 2.” Due Nov. 15 via Atlantic, the seven-track set is led by demo versions of two new songs, “Teachers” and “Ya Mama,” recorded late last year in Palm Springs, Calif.
Also featured are the tracks “If It Wasn’t for You,” “Why Wait?” and “Eyes of a Stranger,” plus live versions of “Boom” and “Wildfire” taped in summer 2004 at the Cornerstone Festival in Bushnell, Ill.
Due early next year, the Glen Ballard-produced “Testify” is the follow-up to P.O.D.’s 2003 release “Payable on Death.” According to the band’s Web site, it will feature two tracks with Hassidic reggae rapper Matisyahu, “Roots in Stereo” and “Strength of My Life.”
As previously reported, P.O.D. will hit the road with Staind and Taproot as part of the Fall Brawl tour, which begins Nov. 11 in San Jose, Calif.
