EPISODE #3 OF STUDIO DOCUMENTARY ALSO AVAILABLE
NEW YORK – Rock radio staples POP EVIL will release their all new LP titled UP on Friday, August 21, 2015 via eOne Music. Purposefully assembled at Studio Litho, Robert Lang Studios and London Bridge Studios with producer Adam Kasper (Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Foo Fighters),UP is the sound of a rock band cementing a powerful identity thats steadily materialized over the course of three prior full-length slabs. The inspirational soon to be live (June 1st) staple Footsteps, POP EVIL prove their burgeoning success is no accident.People ask me all the time, What it’s like to hear your song on the radio? It never gets old! Frontman Leigh Kakaty declares. It’s a reminder of hard work, and of having that dream sitting in your garage, trying to write a song that someone would love one day. That dream happened for our band and it’s something that we don’t want to take lightly.
Now it’s time to step up our game and let people know we can back it all up, he adds. We want to prove we arent a one hit wonder. We didnt just get lucky.
UP is a bold reintroduction and step forward, with guitarists NICK FUELLING and DAVEY GRAHS, bassist MATT DIRITO, drummer CHACHI RIOT and Kakaty at the top of their game. Its always a bit cliché, not to mention questionable, when a band says their new album is the best one yet. But in the case of POP EVIL, its an absolute fact.
POP EVIL smashes through the odds like a battering ram, weathering the trials and tribulations of paying dues with a steadfast resilience owing much to their blue collar and middle class backgrounds, and building a worldwide audience one fan at a time. As the moniker promises when emblazoned on a CD or radio dial, POP EVIL conjures aggressive riffs and hard charging sing-a-longs with emotional heft and melodic power in equal measure. Its music by the people, for the people.
The band is gearing up for a truck load of European and Canadian tour dates including illustrious festivals such as DOWNLOAD and GRASPOP. Click for all tour dates.
