Eleven Seven Music, home to Five Finger Death Punch, Motley Crüe, HELLYEAH, Papa Roach and Escape The Fate, have signed a deal with E1 Entertainment to release the debut album from the dynamic and larger-than-life, Pop Evil in Europe.
At home in the U.S the band have been building on their already impressive career having racked up 2 number 1 singles on America’s Rock Radio, 6 singles in the top 10 and 850,000 digital single sales, while playing over 1,000 shows on tours with heavy-hitters like Five Finger Death Punch, Stone Sour, Three Days Grace, Papa Roach, Theory of a Deadman, Judas Priest, Black Label Society & Black Stone Cherry.
Recognised as one of the hardest touring bands in the U.S, Pop Evil will bring their old-school rock machine to Europe for the first time supporting label-mates Five Finger Death Punch, which includes 2 shows at London’s legendary Forum.
The tour will coincide with the release of new single “Trenches’”,out on 17th March & produced by Johnny K (Disturbed, 3 Doors Down, Megadeth).
According to the band, the single represents the hard work Pop Evil has endured to bring their music to the masses. “It’s about our battles,” Kakaty says. “Not focusing on the things we can’t control, if we really want to be a band that stands the test of time we have to write the music that connects. We have to dig our way out of the trenches.”
Pop Evil’s upcoming album Onyx is expected in the first half of 2014, with further singles and tours planned for the year.
