Pop Evil singer says the concept of their latest album revolves around struggle

Michigan-bred rockers Pop Evil are out on the Trespass America Tour this summer, playing tracks off their latest full-length, 2011’s “War of Angels.” The set has spawned several hard-hitting active rock radio hits, including “Last Man Standing,” “Monster You Made,” “Boss’s Daughter” and the just-added “Purple.”

Pop Evil singer Leigh Kakaty says the core of “War of Angels” is a strong concept about struggle and victory. “You know, with Pop Evil, we try to do concept records,” he recently told Audio Ink Radio. “With our album, ‘War of Angels,’ we tried to put together a piece of work. It was a concept of this war of angels, and that’s this struggle from being a part-time band in Michigan to a full-time band across the nation.”

Kakaty added that the Pop Evil’s latest music video for “Boss’s Daughter” was meant to get-across the spirit and energy of a Pop Evil show. The clip features none other than Motley Crue guitarist Mick Mars, to boot.

“This video for ‘Boss’s Daughter’ captured everything we think of ourselves as a rock band– just in-your-face and a lot of red, white and blue,” he said. “It’s about all-American rock band pride, beautiful women and rock stars rocking.”

The Trespass America Tour also features fellow heavy bands Five Finger Death Punch, Killswitch Engage, Trivium, Battlecross and more. Find a full list of tour dates, visit the tour’s official website.
