Yeah, the christian market was a very lucrative thing in the early 2000's (and still is I would assume). Also, add the mainstream success they had (TRL) and 10 million doesn't sound farfetched.
Also, their popularity was before it was as easy to pirate music as it is now. And again, Christians would (especially back then when I was into the scene) buy records just bc they were labeled Christian, and P.O.D. was the go to alternative for the nu-metal trend then.
i guess it makes sense. but shit thats a high number and they cant even fund an acoustic record 10+ years later.
Yeah, I would assume their labels got aloy of the profit. And besides headlining the big Christian Festivals, they were always support for bigger mainstream acts... And in all honesty, no label is gonna invest in a nu-metal band that hasn't had a hit in 10 years... They were my favorite band in early high school before I got big into Blink. I saw P.O.D. three times in their hey day and they were always amazing. Met them after a show during the era they were pushing "Rock The Party" on TRL, extremely nice dudes.
None of you guys read the article posted or anything inside the link, did you? It's a PRE ORDER. Pledge is not Kickstarter or IndieGoGo. It's more of a pre-order site. The album, as stated, is almost done. This is just to help push some sales and give fans cool items if they want them.
If this was a Blink 182 or Brand New pledge campaign, not a single one of you would be complaining.
