EDITORS’ NOTES

Five albums in, Pop Evil continue to expand the boundaries of contemporary rock. From the staccato nu-metal riffs, harmonic squeals, and radio-ready chorus of "Waking Lions" to the sparse chimes, pulsing beat, and chunky bass riff of "Nothing but Thieves," the band delivers crisp melodic rock punctuated by modern electronic elements. Meanwhile, versatile vocalist Leigh Kakaty raps on the politically charged "Colors Bleed" and "Art of War" while delivering high-flying choruses on the piano-driven "A Crime to Remember" and future sports anthem "Be Legendary."

Waking Lions

Jessica*Rabbit

Have loved these guys from the beginning and they don’t disappoint! Heard the “Waking Lions” premier on Octane last week and haven’t been able to get it out of my head since. Can’t wait for the rest!

About Pop Evil

Melodic post-grunge outfit Pop Evil formed in Grand Rapids, Michigan in 2001. The band developed a sound and performance style that took cues from the likes of Kiss, Soundgarden, and Pearl Jam that aptly put them right in line with popular modern rock acts such as Crossfade, Shinedown, and Puddle of Mudd. Including former members of various area bands such as TenFive, the band released its debut independent album, War of the Roses in 2004 before signing with Universal/Republic imprint Pazzo, who reissued their sophomore LP Lipstick on the Mirror (2008) in the summer of 2009. The album featured three singles that hit Billboard's Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, including the Top Ten "100 in a 55." The band enjoyed greater success with the E1 label, beginning with War of Angels (2011) and Onyx (2013), both of which peaked around number 40 on the Billboard 200. Up (2015), their fifth album, was considered by the bandmembers to be their best release. ~ Corey Apar & Andy Kellman
