New York, New York (July 15,  2022) — Hard rock group Pop Evil has released a remix of their latest single, “Eye of the Storm [Into The Vortex Remix]” today, produced and remixed by Zach Jones. [Watch Now].

 

“We wanted to try something different for a bonus version of ‘Eye Of The Storm,’” said frontman Leigh Kakaty. “We teamed up with Zach Jones who has worked closely with our Producer WZRD BLD and we came up with something that we felt was special.”

 

The original rock track was released in April and is a powerful number that conveys the chaos of a hurricane through dark, electric instrumentals with a pummeling, chaotic metal maelstrom that contains an uplifting message at its center.

 

As for the song’s lyrical plea, the band explains: “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.” The video is an allegory of the song’s meaning and paints a picture of the storm with rapid, flashing lights and rain flooding the scene – Watch the official video.  

The band is currently on the road concluding their run on August 14 in Wichita at The Cotillion joining Shinedown in Canada starting on July 19 through August 3.  Dates with Daughtry will begin on August 25 in Verona, NY at Turning Stone Casino through September 18 concluding in Melbourne, FL at King Center. Plus they’ll perform at the Blue Ridge Rock Festival and Louder Than Life in September.

# supporting Shinedown

Pop Evil has massive anthems and built a new rock’n’roll institution on a foundation of showmanship, raw relatability, and hard rock hooks, both forward-thinking and timeless from frontman, Leigh Kakaty, lead guitarist Nick Fuelling, rhythm guitarist Dave Grahs, bassist Joey “Chicago” Walser and drummer Hayley Cramer. No matter the headline-grabbing declarations from legendary icons, lamenting the changing of the guard, the slow-burning success of Pop Evil demonstrates the hunger for hard-hitting honest music persisting worldwide.

 

Their 2011 album, War of Angels debuted at #8 on Billboard Top Rock Albums with three singles landing on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Top 10 including “Last Man Standing”, “Monster You Made” and “Boss’s Daughter.” The momentum continued with their 2013 album Onyx, landing them on the Top 40 of the Billboard 200 for the first time, plus it was #9 on the Billboard Independent Albums in America and #25 on the Billboard 200. The album included three #1 Billboard Mainstream Rock singles with “Trenches” “Deal with the Devil” and “Torn to Pieces.” In 2015, the band released their album, UP, which would make its way to #1 on Billboard Independent Albums, with four Top 5 Billboard Singles such as “Ways to Get High,” “Take It All,” and “If Only for Now”. The hit single, “Footsteps” is still one of the biggest songs to date and returned Pop Evil to Billboard’s #1 spot for four weeks. Their 2018 self-titled album landed three singles on Billboard Mainstream Rock, “Waking Lions” at #1 with “Be Legendary” peaking at #2, and “A Crime to Remember” peaking at #7. Pop Evil just celebrated their 7th career #1 single in late 2021 with “Survivor” on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Chart marking a historic milestone. “Survivor” joins the previous Top 10 single “Work,” and #1 single “Breathe Again,” from their album VERSATILE, out now via MNRK HeavyOver the course of their career, the band has achieved four gold singles with “Torn to Pieces,” and “Trenches” from Onyx, “Footsteps” from UP and, “100 in a 55” from their debut studio album, Lipstick on the Mirror.
