Atlantic Records, Sony Computer Entertainment and Atlantic recording group P.O.D. announced a collaboration to create a combined music CD/PlayStation 2 videogame release. The first one million copies of P.O.D.'s eagerly awaited new album, "PAYABLE ON DEATH," will include a bonus PlayStation 2 DVD containing a custom videogame track from the PlayStation 2 music game title, Amplitude, featuring a newly recorded, non-album P.O.D. track, "Space." Playable only on the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system, this disc will also feature the 50-minute behind-the-scenes documentary, "Inside P.O.D. Culture," and a special feature on Daniel Martin Diaz, the artist who created the paintings and sketches for the "PAYABLE ON DEATH" package.

Due in stores nationwide on November 4, this two-disc package will carry a suggested list price of only $19.98, providing tremendous added value for P.O.D. and PlayStation 2 fans. The album will be stickered with the PlayStation 2 logo.

P.O.D. lead vocalist Sonny commented: "This idea came out of us wanting to do everything possible to give back to our fans. With all the talk about downloading and CD prices, all we've ever cared about is giving our fans the best. We've been working for most of the year to release a fully playable video game with our record."

The "PAYABLE ON DEATH" music CD itself will also include enhanced elements, including excerpts from the "Inside P.O.D. Culture" documentary, plus a "key" to unlock a special bonus web site which will allow consumers exclusive access to download the song "Space."

As a further bonus for purchasers of "PAYABLE ON DEATH," each of the first million copies of the album will include one of three "art cards" created by cover artist Daniel Martin Diaz. In addition, approximately 1,500 cards (500 of each design) have been hand-signed by all four band members and will be randomly inserted into the production run.
