Frontman Leigh Kakaty said the following about the album:

“This is about us as a band stripping everything down to the bones. It’s more uptempo, it’s got bigger riffs, and we’re trying to capture the energy of our live show. But it’s also a positive message. I know it’s a morbid visual, but behind every skeleton, there’s a story and something worth talking about. Overall, it’s about looking at something in a positive way. And I’m excited for everyone to hear that.”

With this news, the band have also shared a new video for their latest single “Paranoid (Crash & Burn).” Kakaty added the following about that track:

“It’s about the voices in our head — we all have ’em, but do we act on them?” says Kakaty. “It’s a cautionary tale, about processing those voices in a positive way.”

The video’s director, Jensen Noen, also commented:

“During tough times, our minds can easily wander into dark places. It can feel like you’re drowning in a sea of paranoia. But no matter how bad things get, there’s always hope. There is always a way to escape from our minds. We just need to find the right key to unlock the door.”

Pop Evil Premiere New Song “Paranoid (Crash & Burn)”

Pop Evil have premiered a new song titled “Paranoid (Crash & Burn).” The track will appear on the band’s upcoming album, which is expected to be released in early 2023. Leigh Kakaty commented:

“It’s about the voices in our head — we all have ’em, but do we act on them? It’s a cautionary tale, about processing those voices in a positive way. It’s very aggro and uptempo, and I think it speaks to the depression and anxiety a lot of us have at this stage in our lives.”

Pop Evil Premiere “Eye Of The Storm” Music Video

Pop Evil have premiered a new video for their new song “Eye Of The Storm.” The band commented:

“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.”
