The record’s lead single ‘Rockin’ With The Best‘ debuted Sept. 7.  Its companion video followed only five days later on Sept. 12.

In regards to its lyrical theme, ‘Circles’ tackles the topic of prescription drug abuse, according to the band.  Front man Sonny Sandoval said in an interview that its musical arrangement will appeal to a wide range of audiences.

“‘Circles,’ as the title track, and in general, is a culmination of 26 years of P.O.D.,” Sandoval said.  “Its neither old school nor new, just a sound we’re familiar with, and have helped pioneer throughout our career.  When you hear it, you know it’s P.O.D.”

Circles is P.O.D.’s 10th full-length studio recording, and the band’s first record for Mascot Label Group.  It is the band’s first record of new material since the band’s 2015 album The Awakening.

Front man Sonny Sandoval said in a written statement that the band’s approach to its new record was inclusive.

“On ‘Circles,’ we didn’t limit ourselves and say, “Hey, we need to please the metal crowd, or the hardcore crowd, or the punk crowd,”” Sandoval said.  “We just wanted to play and write songs that we hope are relevant and catchy to a new audience — while, at the same time,  still being true to ourselves.”

The album’s overall lyrical theme is one of optimism despite life’s difficulties.  As Sandoval explained: “We’re looking for answers — and we’re going to people to help us get through things — but at the same time, no one’s perfect.  Everybody’s going through stuff, and we’re all kind of on this same level and the same journey of experience and just trying to figure out our course of life.”
