Michigan’s Pop Evil is tearing up the states this month on the Monster Energy Outbreak Tour with Rev Theory. Their sophomore album, War Of Angels, is ready for mass metal consumption. While the label and/or management have held up the original February 8th release date, fans who have heard the first single “Last Man Standing”, or the free download of “Save The World” on their Facebook page, know this album’s going to be a beast.
War Of Angels is heavier than their Lipstick On The Mirror debut, and vocalist Leigh Kakaty feels the new album really defines the band’s sound. He even went so far as to say that this is more realistically the “true” debut album of Pop Evil.
The band had the good fortune of hunkering down in Chicago for 6 months with producer Johnny K (Airbourne, Disturbed, Sevendust, Machine Head) who milked every drop of sweat from the band, and made them earn this record.
This week Metalholic sat down with Leigh to discuss the Outbreak tour, the new record, their tour with metal icons, Judas Priest, and he reveals what band he’d truly love to tour with if he had a time machine.
Take a listen below, grab the new songs, and keep an eye on their websites for the forthcoming album release date!
