Rock USA’s promoter Hypervibe does an admirable job of bringing nationally known and up and coming metal artist to a smaller market every year. Offering 3 days of music, multiple ticketing and on-site camping options, as well as a various food beverage vendors in a safe and well-policed venue with easy on and off major highway access.
We’ve got to draw a line so I think as a band and it is important for us to record to in someway start to hold ourselves accountable and try to step up and change and be better
For the album, the band brought on veteran producer Kato Khandwala and went into the studio in June 2017
Until Saturday night I’d been familiar with Pop Evil in name only, but the one thing I’d continually heard about the Michigan quintet was how amazing they were life, so I decided to see for myself
For those of you who are not familiar Pop Evil are a Michigan 5-piece, whose last album ‘Onyx’ enjoyed three consecutive number one singles and made the billboard top 40 in the USA.They opened the Download Festival Mainstage on Sunday 14 June.The band have debuted their new single titled “Footsteps” via Billboard.com, a huge hook-laden rock anthem and the first music heard from new album ‘Up’ due out August 21st via eOne Music. Check it out here: http://www.vevo.com/watch/USKO11090555. I had the opportunity to have a brief chat with the band shortly after they came off stage.
Having released three albums since 2008, the band’s only live experience in the UK to date has been on the Five Finger Death Punch tour in 2013. As they return to their first headline show in London the crowd swells but could, as noted, have been so much more with some decent media publicity.
