POP EVIL Drops New Single 'Eye Of The Storm'

Hard rock group POP EVIL has released a gritty new single, “Eye Of The Storm”, along with an accompanying video directed by Sam Shapiro. The track 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. 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.

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.”

POP EVIL will begin its headlining tour on June 23 in Milwaukee at Summerfest, concluding on August 14 in Wichita at The Cotillion with special guests ZILLION and OXYMORRONS. POP EVIL will also support SHINEDOWN on its summer 2022 Canadian tour, starting on July 19 in Quebec City at Centre Videotron and ending on August 3 in Abbotsford at Abbotsford Centre.

POP EVIL celebrated its seventh career No. 1 single on Billboard‘s Mainstream Rock chart in late 2021 with “Survivor” marking a historic milestone. “Survivor” joined the previous Top 10 single “Work” and No. 1 single “Breathe Again” from POP EVIL‘s latest album “Versatile”, out now via MNRK Heavy. Over the course of its career, POP EVIL has achieved four gold singles with “Torn To Pieces” and “Trenches” from “Onyx”, “Footsteps” from “Up” and “100 In A 55” from the band’s debut studio album, “Lipstick On The Mirror”.

POP EVIL‘s longtime bassist Matt DiRito announced his exit from the band last July, saying in a statement that “the details surrounding my departure are only known by a few people, and respectfully it will remain that way.” He added: “Walking away from something I’ve helped build is not easy — but it is the best thing for the band, myself and our respective futures. POP EVIL will continue on and so will I, just not together.” He has since been replaced by Joey “Chicago” Walser of EGYPT CENTRAL and DEVOUR THE DAY.
