POP EVIL has released a behind the scenes studio video surrounding their time spent at Sound Emporium Studios in Nashville this past summer. The video, the first in a series of videos to come, documents the band living together as they embarked on the writing process for their fifth studio LP.
The band will embark on the Music Over Words Tour, which will serve as the official kickoff for their recently announced all-new, self-titled LP. Additionally, POP EVIL is confirmed for festival dates Carolina Rebellion on Friday, May 5th, and Fort Rock on Sunday, April 29th.
The massive US tour kicks off on February 14th in Sault Ste. Marie, MI at the Kewadin Casino. The band will hit both sides of the U.S. coast before wrapping things up at The Fillmore in Detroit on April 6th. Band VIP goes on sale Tuesday at www.popevilvip.com.PALAYE ROYALE and label-mates BLACK MAP will serve as support for all dates.
POP EVIL recently announced a brand new single and music video for a track called“Waking Lions”, exclusively through VEVO. As previously heard on SiriusXM’S Octane channel, “Waking Lions” is the first bit of music we’re hearing from the band’s 5th studio album. “This is a Dawn of a New Day for Pop Evil,” says Kakaty. “The new lineup feels like a whole new chapter for us. We could not be more proud to lead off this new album cycle with Waking Lions, sending a positive message to our fans.”
Pop Evil teamed up with Columbia Tatone on the video and couldn’t be happier with the outcome.“Columbia brought a unique and distinctive approach with her visuals for our new music video. We really feel she delivered the energy that the song carries.”
Pop Evil will release Pop Evil, their fifth studio LP on February 16, 2018, via Entertainment One.
The band brought on veteran producer Kato Khandwala and have been hard at work since early June. The band spent most of the summer in Nashville, TN at Studio A inSound Emporium Studios and finished up the album at Sphere Studios in Los Angeles, CA earlier this month.
The new self-titled LP will be the highly anticipated follow up to UP, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard U.S, Independent Albums Chart, #3 on the Billboard Top Hard Rock Albums Chart and #25 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart in the week of its release. UPproduced four top 5 singles with “Footsteps,” “If Only For Now,” “Ways to Get High” and“Take It All.” “Footsteps” not only reached #1 but went on to be the longest #1 single of the band’s career.
