April 14, 2014, a year ago
To celebrate 'Torn To Pieces', their third single going top 5, POP EVIL have debuted a new music video for the track, directed by long time director Johan Carlén.
The song deals with the loss of loved ones, something everyone is bound to go through. “Digging up the past can be very difficult,” says vocalist Leigh Kakaty, “Losing someone close to you has a healing process, and I choose to do it through this video.”
Fans have been pouring out their support via an Instagram campaign the band set up last month. Pop Evil encouraged fans to upload their own photos depicting what the song means to them by tagging the photos with #petorntopieces.
Since its launch the collection is ever growing and has far surpassed the band’s expectations. Kakaty continues, “It makes me happy that this song is helping people like we hoped it would."
Pop Evil has enjoyed quite a bit of success surrounding their latest LP, Onyx. 'Deal With The Devil' is their latest single to go all the way to #1 on the Active Rock charts. 'Trenches' was the first track on the LP to hit #1 and is currently slotted to serve as the theme song for the Pittsburgh Penguins during the upcoming NHL Playoffs.
With 'Torn To Pieces' quickly creeping up the charts, the band is on the verge of landing three number one singles for the first time in their decorated career. The band is set to hit the road again, this time on a co-headlining run with ESCAPE THE FATE and label-mates AVATAR and GLAMOUR OF THE KILL.
Dates will start on April 30th in St. Louis, MO and wrap up in Dallas, TX on June 1st. Pop Evil will be offering VIP packages for the first time on this run. VIPs will be able to meet the band, grab a copy of Onyx and walk home with a commemorative VIP laminate.
The band is also scheduled to perform on the main stage at this year's Rock On The Rang festival in May, All tour dates can be found here.
