P.O.D.’s Sonny Sandoval Says Passport Issues Prevented Drummer Wuv Bernardo From Joining The Band On Their European Tour

P.O.D. frontman Sonny Sandoval has revealed that drummer Wuv Bernardo’s absence from the band’s European tour was related to passport issues. This news comes after Bernardo previously said he stayed home to “take care of some business.” Sandoval told Moshpit Passion the following:

“It’s all passport stuff. It’s a little difficult, all the red tape and all that stuff. So he couldn’t get it in time, but he’s working on it now. And hopefully with this run [doing] so well that promoters will bring us back sooner than later.”
