HARD ROCK GROUP POP EVIL RELEASE POWERFUL AND GRITTY SINGLE ‘EYE OF THE STORM’ WITH AN OFFICIAL VIDEO

SUMMER HEADLINING TOUR KICKS-OFF JUNE 23
WITH SPECIAL GUESTS ZILLION AND OXYMORRONS

POP EVIL WILL JOIN SHINEDOWN ON THEIR SUMMER 2022
CANADIAN TOUR JULY 19 THROUGH AUGUST 3

Toronto, ON – April 21, 2022 – Hard rock group, Pop Evil, has released their gritty single, Eye of the Storm, today with an accompanying video directed by Sam Shapiro. The rock track is a powerful number that conveys the chaos of a hurricane through dark, electric instrumentals with a pummeling, chaotic metal maelstrom that contains an uplifting message at its centre. The video is an allegory of the song’s meaning and paints a picture of the storm with rapid, flashing lights and rain flooding the scene. Watch here  and stream it here.

As for the song’s lyrical plea, the band explains: “It doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from, at some point we all face a situation beyond our control. The wind howls at your door as darkness fills the sky and everything you know is being tested. You don’t know if you can survive it. At times, it feels hopeless, but it’s not. There is a path through the chaos and a way out of the confusion. You are stronger and closer than you think you are. The storm will pass. Don’t let it bury you.” 

The band will begin their headlining tour on June 23 in Milwaukee at Summerfest concluding on August 14 in Wichita at The Cotillion with special guests, ZILLION and Oxymorrons. The band will be supporting Shinedown on their Summer 2022 Canadian tour starting on July 19 in Quebec City at Centre Videotron ending on August 3 in Abbotsford at Abbotsford Centre

Pop Evil has massive anthems and built a new rock’n’roll institution on a foundation of showmanship, raw relatability, and hard rock hooks, both forward-thinking and timeless from frontman, Leigh Kakaty, lead guitarist Nick Fuelling, rhythm guitarist Dave Grahs, bassist Joey “Chicago” Walser and drummer Hayley Cramer. No matter the headline-grabbing declarations from legendary icons, lamenting the changing of the guard, the slow-burning success of Pop Evil demonstrates the hunger for hard-hitting honest music persisting worldwide.

Their 2011 album, War of Angels, debuted at #8 on Billboard Top Rock Albums with three singles landing on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Top 10 including Last Man Standing, Monster You Made and Boss’s Daughter. The momentum continued with their 2013 album Onyx, landing them on the Top 40 of the Billboard 200 for the first time, plus it was #9 on the Billboard Independent Albums in America and #25 on the Billboard 200. The album included three #1 Billboard Mainstream Rock singles with Trenches, Deal with the Devil and Torn to Pieces. In 2015, the band released their album, UP, which would make its way to #1 on Billboard Independent Albums, with four Top 5 Billboard Singles such as Ways to Get High, Take It All, and If Only for Now. The hit single, Footsteps is still one of the biggest songs to date and returned Pop Evil to Billboard’s #1 spot for four weeks. Their 2018 self-titled album landed three singles on Billboard Mainstream Rock, Waking Lions at #1 with Be Legendary peaking at #2, and A Crime to Remember, peaking at #7. Pop Evil just celebrated their 7th career #1 single in late 2021 with Survivor on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Chart marking a historic milestone. Survivor joins the previous Top 10 single, Work, and #1 single Breathe Again, from their album,  VERSATILE, out now via MNRK HeavyOver the course of their career, the band has achieved four gold singles with Torn to Pieces, and Trenches from Onyx, Footsteps from UP and, 100 in a 55 from their debut studio album, Lipstick on the Mirror
