Fans Crash Car Into Venue During P.O.D., From Ashes To New, & All Good Things’ Birmingham, AL Show

During P.O.D., From Ashes To New, and All Good Things’ September 21 show at the Zydeco Bar in Birmingham, AL, two fans ended up crashing a car into the building. They have since been arrested.

According to the Birmingham Police Department, the suspects allegedly slammed their car into the venue and took off before they were taken into custody. One person suffered minor injuries. Notably, witnesses also mentioned that the driver was kicked out of the venue earlier that night.

From Ashes To New vocalist Matt Brandyberry discussed the incident in a video that was uploaded to social media:

“Apparently, what happened was this dude got kicked out of our show tonight. And I guess he got mad at the security guard for doing that. I guess they got into a fight and, from what I’m hearing, someone pulled a gun — security pulled a gun or something like that — and they got into a fight. And then this dude left… I guess what ended up happening was after he left, he came back with his car and he tried to run the security guard over. … This dude ran his fucking car into the bar, into the club. … I guess he must’ve hit the security guard, but the security guard seems fine; he’s bleeding, but he seems like he’s fine. But the dude who’s driving the car is mangled. The dude is, like, all messed up.”

P.O.D. Working On New Album

During a recent interview with Anne Erickson of Audio Ink Radio, P.O.D.’s Sonny Sandoval confirmed that the band are working on a new album. He said the following about that:

“Yes, we’ve been working on a new record. I think everybody has during the whole COVID time. But not being able to go jam — I mean, we’re a band that jams. A lot of these new bands all live in different states, and they just send files, and all of a sudden, they create music. Well, P.O.D. is not like that. We like to sit with each other and play music and figure stuff out. And so it’s kind of been a rough thing. So we’ve been trying to write as individuals, but it’s just a learning process. Not that it’s difficult, it’s just we like to get together like what a real band is supposed to do and hang out and talk and vibe out and just jam. That’s what bands do. So, we’re working on new stuff. I know we’re gonna do the [20th-anniversary] re-release of ‘Satellite’ [P.O.D.’s fourth studio album this month], and then I’m sure soon after that we’ll be dropping a single at some point.”
