Pop Evil have debuted the music video for their smash hit Footsteps. “We challenged ourselves to come up with something different for the viewer,” says vocalist Leigh Kakaty. The video was directed by long-time collaborator Johan Carlén who has helmed the last handful of visually stunning music videos the band has released including “Trenches,” “Deal With The Devil” and “Torn to Pieces.” Kakaty continues, “Johan brought our vision to a whole new light, as it’s reflected through this amazing piece of art.”
The band revealed episode #5 of its behind the scenes studio documentary. The band spent time with producer Adam Kasper (Foo Fighters, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam) in Seattle and captured the experience on camera, giving fans an insight into the creation of their all new LP titled UP, which is becoming Pop Evil’s most anticipated release to date.
Purposefully assembled at Studio Litho, Robert Lang Studios and London Bridge Studios with producer Adam Kasper, UP is the sound of a rock band cementing a powerful identity that’s 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.
UP is a bold reintroduction and step forward, with guitarists NICK FUELLING and DAVEY GRAHS, bassist MATT DIRITO, drummer CHACHI RIOT and LEIGH KAKATY at the top of their game. It’s 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, it’s 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. It’s music by the people, for the people.
