Pop Evil Premiere “A Crime To Remember” Music Video

Pop Evil have premiered a new video for their song “A Crime To Remember.” This track is from the band’s self-titled album, which was released in February.

Leigh Kakaty commented:

“[Director] Columbia [Tatone] has delivered what we feel is the most powerful video to date for Pop Evil. The concept keeps an open book storyline on how human beings view the world at the moment. Our hope is to raise awareness that it’s time for all of us to come together and be united.”

The clip was released in memory of the group’s late producer Kato Khandwala. Kakaty added the following about that:

“It’s been a long few weeks for us. We are still grieving the loss of Kato who was an incredible talent and an amazing human being. His daughter Paris is in need of help since his passing, donations can be made to her here.”
