Pop Evil Are In The Studio Working On A New Album
American rock band POP EVIL have been hard at
work in the studio this summer working on an all new LP due out early next
year. The band has brought on veteran producer Kato Khandwala and
have been hard at work since early June. The band spent most of the summer
in Nashville, TN at Studio A in Sound Emporium Studios
and will finish up the album in Los Angeles, CA in the coming weeks.
“The band is in such a great creative groove right now!” says
frontman Leigh Kakaty. “After taking much-needed time off, we started
the writing process in Michigan this past April and May, before heading to
the Sound Emporium in Nashville. We have recorded close to 20 songs
for the album and are now narrowing down our choices before heading to L.A.
to finish the record. Our producer Kato has been a blessing and a pleasure
to work with, and he’s the best devil’s advocate we’ve had in the studio!”
The band has released a short studio video which
premiered via SiriusXM Octane earlier this week.
The yet to be titled LP will be the highly anticipated follow up to UP,
which debuted at #1 on the Billboard US Independent Albums, #3 on the
Billboard Top Hard Rock Albums and #25 on the Billboard Top 200 in the week
of its release. UP produced four top 5 singles with "Footsteps,"
"If Only For Now," "Ways to Get High" and
"Take It All.” “Footsteps” not only reached number one
but went on to be the longest #1 single of the band's career.
Kakaty continues, “It’s been the smoothest recording process to date,
and we’ve been taking our time and giving each song its due diligence. One
thing I can say is you will get a little bit of everything from us on this
album. We’re letting all our emotions out on this one. No boundaries. New
Pop Evil music is on the horizon!”
The band hasn't’ let up on its road dog reputation, virtually staying on the
road for the past two years since their last LP. POP EVIL will
continue that trend and be on the road all summer starting with two SOLD
OUT shows at The Machine Shop in Flint, MI. Other highlights include
supporting BUSH at the Blue Stream Amphitheater in Moorhead, MN, STURGIS
2017 with Ozzy Osbourne, Moonstock Music Festival with Papa
Roach andRIFF Fest with Rob Zombie.
