Rockers Pod have credited upcoming movie The Matrix Reloaded with saving their band.

The bandmembers admit they were on the brink of breaking up after splitting with guitarist MARCOS earlier this year (03), but they were saved by their experience recording SLEEPING AWAKE for the Matrix Reloaded flick with a new member.

POD frontman SONNY SANDOVAL says new bandmate JASON TRUBY's work on the song helped keep the band together.

He explains, "He did us a favour by helping us out with this song, and then once it was all said and done it kind of confirmed that maybe we should keep doing what we loved - and that's making music. So now he's helping us do that."

The bandmembers went into the studio to start work on their new album on yesterday (05MAY03).
