The band recently released their newest single ‘Eye of Storm’ with an accompanying music video directed by Sam Sharpiro, available to watch here: https://youtu.be/U9jGRtmCsNQ
The rock track is a powerful number that conveys the chaos of a hurricane through dark, electric instrumentals with a pummelling, chaotic metal maelstrom that contains an uplifting message at its centre. The video is an allegory of the song’s meaning and paints a picture of the storm with rapid, flashing lights and rain flooding the scene.
Pop Evil – Eye of the StormPop Evil have massive anthems and built a new rock’n’roll institution on a foundation of showmanship, raw relatability, and hard rock hooks, both forward-thinking and timeless from frontman, Leigh Kakaty, lead guitarist Nick Fuelling, rhythm guitarist Dave Grahs, bassist Joey “Chicago” Walser and drummer Hayley Cramer. No matter the headline-grabbing declarations from legendary icons, lamenting the changing of the guard, the slow-burning success of Pop Evil demonstrates the hunger for hard-hitting honest music persisting worldwide.
Their 2011 album, War of Angels debuted at #8 on Billboard Top Rock Albums with three singles landing on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Top 10 including ‘Last Man Standing’, ‘Monster You Made’ and ‘Boss’s Daughter.’ The momentum continued with their 2013 album Onyx, landing them on the Top 40 of the Billboard 200 for the first time, plus it was #9 on the Billboard Independent Albums in America and #25 on the Billboard 200. The album included three #1 Billboard Mainstream Rock singles with ‘Trenches’ ‘Deal with the Devil’ and ‘Torn to Pieces.’ In 2015, the band released their album, UP, which would make its way to #1 on Billboard Independent Albums, with four Top 5 Billboard Singles such as ‘Ways to Get High,’ ‘Take It All,’ and ‘If Only for Now’. The hit single, ‘Footsteps’ is still one of the biggest songs to date and returned Pop Evil to Billboard’s #1 spot for four weeks.
Their 2018 self-titled album landed three singles on Billboard Mainstream Rock, ‘Waking Lions’ at #1 with ‘Be Legendary’ peaking at #2, and ‘A Crime to Remember’ peaking at #7. Pop Evil just celebrated their 7th career #1 single in late 2021 with ‘Survivor’ on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Chart marking a historic milestone. ‘Survivor’ joins the previous Top 10 single ‘Work,’ and #1 single ‘Breathe Again,’ from their album VERSATILE, out now via MNRK Heavy. Over the course of their career, the band has achieved four gold singles with ‘Torn to Pieces,’ and ‘Trenches’ from Onyx, ‘Footsteps’ from UP and, ‘100 in a 55’ from their debut studio album, Lipstick on the Mirror.
