Pop Evil, ‘Trenches (DMC Remix)’ – Exclusive Song Premiere
It’s been a banner year for Pop Evil, who earned their first chart-topper of their career with the hit single ‘Trenches.’ Now the song that fans have come to love is getting a fresh spin courtesy of rap icon, Darryl ‘DMC’ McDaniels, famously of hip-hop pioneers Run-DMC. The band turned over their song to DMC, and Loudwire is now bringing you the exclusive premiere of his ‘Trenches’ remix, which appears on the new super deluxe edition of Pop Evil’s ‘Onyx’ album.
The remix itself keeps most of the core elements intact, with the beat feeling a little more prevalent and the anthemic level of the song reaching new heights with DMC’s addition.
“It’s an honor getting to work with rap icon Darryl ‘DMC’ McDaniels of Run-DMC on our remix of the No. 1 Rock Single ‘Trenches,’” says frontman Leigh Kakaty. “Collaborating with DMC has brought the song to a whole new level, and we are very excited to get it out there to see what the future brings.”
Even though he’s known for rap music, DMC has made a habit of expanding his boundaries into the rock world. The cross-genre collaboration with Aerosmith on ‘Walk This Way’ helped pave the way for rap-rock, while his 2006 solo album ‘Checks Thugs and Rock ‘n’ Roll’ featured a pairing with Kid Rock. In recent years, he’s also turned up on the Jackyl song ‘Just Like a Negro’ and teamed with Static-X on ‘Noise Revolution.’
The super-deluxe edition of Pop Evil’s ‘Onyx’ album, complete with DMC remix of ‘Trenches,’ will be available on Dec. 17. Fans can pre-order the release on iTunes. In addition, Pop Evil recently announced a series of 2014 tour dates with Stone Sour. The full itinerary can be seen by clicking the button below.
