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”
