Pop Evil Premiere New Songs “Work” & “Let The Chaos Reign”

Pop Evil have premiered two new songs, “Work” and “Let The Chaos Reign.” Both tracks will appear on the band’s upcoming album.

Leigh Kakaty told Loudwire the following about “Let The Chaos Reign”:

“This track reflects the anxiety of the times although that was not its intention, but definitely fits the moment. It gives me hope that we can beat this pandemic so we all can get back to those little things we use to take for granted. We all have to do our part. Until then, ‘Let The Chaos Reign.’”

He also added the following about “Work”:

“The decision to choose this song almost felt even more fitting as a lead single because of the state of the world during this horrible pandemic happening. The song is about being stuck in a mental rut, life in general is all ‘Work’. With technology infused in our lives, human communication and social media are at an all-time high. It’s almost impossible to completely shut down and rest your mind. This song embodies the angst and the emotions of just wanting to be left alone for a minute. I’m sure there are a lot of people out there that can relate to ‘Work’ even more so now than ever.”

Pop Evil Tease New Songs “Work” & “Let The Chaos Reign”

Pop Evil have posted teasers for two new songs, “Work” and “Let The Chaos Reign.” Both tracks will be released on Thursday (April 30).

Pop Evil Premiere “Be Legendary” Music Video

Pop Evil have premiered a new video for their song “Be Legendary.” This track is from the band’s latest self-titled album.

Frontman Leigh Kakaty commented:

“When we were first writing this song, it started with this addictive-yet-hypnotic guitar riff. Suddenly I could see our fans coming together as one. I just felt like this was going to be a great opportunity to write an anthemic type of lyrical song that could positively motivate people. Now we see all our fans posting on social media how this song motivates them in their daily lives. Plus, to see how passionate they are whenever they hear us perform it live. Time will tell just how big this song can become.”

Director Columbia Tatone added:

“This story is for the underdogs. It’s about friendship and togetherness. A reminder that although life doesn’t always ‘play fair,’ know that our trials are a gift as you build sustaining character, discovering what you’re indeed made of and made for as you earn the victory on the climb back up.”
