POP EVIL RELEASE SECOND EPISODE OF BEHIND THE SCENES STUDIO DOCUMENTARY

POP EVIL have released episode two of seven of an all new in the studio / making of documentary surrounding the fast approaching LP due out later this year. Directed by longtime director and collaborator Scott Corl, the series aims to give the fans an inside look at the making of the band’s highly anticipated release.

“We are excited to show our fans an inside look at what it was like for us to live and record in Seattle,”says frontman Leigh Kakaty. “PEIV took us out of our comfort zone resulting in what we feel like is our best work yet.”

POP EVIL recently wrapped up production in Studio Litho and London Bridge Studios with veteran producer Adam Kasper  on their all new LP due out this summer. Kasper is notable for producing mega-hit records for bands like Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and Foo Fighters.

The yet to be titled effort will be quite the anticipated follow up to the band’s previous LP, ONYX(debuting #39 on the Billboard Top 200 and #9 on the Independent Charts) that was released in 2013 and recently reached 180,000 copies sold domestically according to Nielsen SoundScan – a feat not easily accomplished in the current state of rock. ONYX also produced FOUR Top 10 singles on the Active Rock Chart with THREE of them reaching number one with its tracks: “Trenches,” “Deal with the Devil” and “Torn to Pieces.”

Since ONYX was released, the band have played over 250 shows in support. Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival alongside GODSMACK, supporting STONE SOUR in the U.S. and FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH in Europe were just some of the highlights from last year. The band also made headlines with their memorable Rock on the Range Festival performance in Columbus, OH. Not only did they perform “Trenches” with Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Darryl “D.M.C.” McDaniels, but the band brought 13 Marines on stage showcasing the Lima Company Eyes of Freedom Memorial to stand behind them during the performance.

By the time 2014 came to a close, the band found their songs atop the year end charts at Billboard Magazine. “Torn to Pieces” landed at #7 on the “Top Mainstream Rock Songs” while POP EVIL themselves came in at #4 on the “Mainstream Rock Artists” chart.
