Plus Christian nu-metallers are currently recording their eighth album

POD have announced details of two UK gigs set for June.

The Christian nu metallers, who cancelled their last UK tour in 2009 as they’d gone on hiatus, have scheduled the dates to coincide with the release of their as-yet untitled eighth studio album.

The band will play Birmingham‘s HMV Institute on June 16 and London‘s HMV Forumon June 17.

POD‘s most recent album, ‘When Angels & Serpents Dance’, came out in 2008, with the band going on hiatus the following year. They reconvened soon after and have never given an official reason for the break.

Recording for their new album is well underway and the band will be posting studio footage throughout the process on their official website, Payableondeath.com.
