Pop Evil kicked off this year with a massive trek with Stone Sour, and now the band is hitting the road with Escape the Fate. For a full list of dates go here. We had the opportunity to sit down with Pop Evil frontman Leigh Kakaty, who spoke all about the band’s latest disc ‘Onyx.’ He gives an honest account of their need for creative freedom and expression on the album, as well as challenging recording moments.
There are already quite a few rock festivals scheduled for the spring and early summer, but the Operation Rock Festival is the one that stands out for its commitment to the military men and women who serve our country. The event, which features headliners Pop Evil and Nonpoint, will take place June 21 in Fredericksburg, Va.
Pop Evil are about to get back in front of audiences, both on the concert stage and on television. The group has just announced a late spring run of tour dates with Escape the Fate and they've also shot a promo for the ACC Men's Basketball Tournament with Darryl 'DMC' McDaniels that will feature prominently during broadcasts.
Pop Evil are wrapping up their video trilogy with 'Behind Closed Doors,' the third clip directed by Johan Carlen. Within the scope of the trilogy, the video is actually meant to be the first portion of a story that has been told in reverse, starting with 'Trenches' and 'Deal With the Devil.' All three songs appear on the band's 2013 album 'Onyx.'
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.
This weekend, Loudwire Radio host Mike 'Sandman' Sanders welcomes Pop Evil singer Leigh Kakaty to the show. Kakaty talks about the band's video trilogy, which most recently saw the premiere of the clip for 'Deal With the Devil.' He also discusses the band's latest album 'Onyx,' touring, baseball and more. Tune in this weekend to catch Leigh Kakaty on Loudwire Radio. In the meantime, check out the interview below:
