On the heels of their hit single “Alive,” which has served as an inspirational anthem in recent weeks, San Diego’s rap-rockers P.O.D. are hitting the road to support their second major-label album, Satellite.
The headlining trek, titled the Youth of the Nation Tour after a song off the quartet’s new album, kicks off October 18 in Phoenix, Arizona, according to P.O.D.’s publicist. Although 22 dates are confirmed at press time, additional shows are expected to be scheduled, extending the jaunt into mid-December.
Satellite debuted at #6 on the Billboard 200 albums chart after its release September 11 and now sits at #8, having sold more than 200,000 copies to date, according to SoundScan. The follow-up single to “Alive” has yet to be chosen, P.O.D’.s publicist said.
Pop-punks Fenix TX and Stockholm’s Blindside, whose lead singer Christian Lindskog appears on Satellite’s “Anything Right,” have been tapped as openers. Fenix TX continue to promote their second album, Lechuza, released in May; while Blindside, also among the spiritual rock set, are touting last year’s A Thought Crushed My Mind.
