POP EVIL ACHIEVES FIRST #1 SINGLE ON NEW LP, FOURTH OF THEIR CAREER

Pop Evil have done it again! The band has reached #1 on the Mainstream Rock Chart for the fourth time in the band’s career with their latest smash hit “Footsteps.”

“Footsteps” is also being used in a new Dodge Ram Truck commercial and has also been a featured ESPN sync track. The single is not only the fastest charting single the band has to date, but is also the fastest independent record label single to go #1 at rock radio this year. POP EVIL released UP on August 21, 2015 and saw the release land at #1 on the Billboard Indie Chart in the week of its release. The LP pulled in at #25 Billboard Top 200, #16 Overall and #3 Top Hard Music albums.

POP EVIL released a flurry of tracks off their LP before its release. “Footsteps” led the charge with “In Disarray,” “Dead In The Water” and “Ghost Of Muskegon” right behind it. The band went on to debut the music video for that hit single, “Footsteps.” 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.”

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.
