POP EVIL represents the American dream. Raised in the heartland, driven by uncompromising passion and goals, self-made from their bootstraps and energized by diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds, POP EVIL has used muscle and sweat to put their musical vision into the hearts and minds of hard rock lovers worldwide. 'Up' is the band's fourth studio album, following on from the runaway success of their previous album 'Onyx', which racked it up on the US Billboard 200, US Independent Albums, US Rock Albums and Canadian Active Rock charts. Album producer Adam Kasper on the new record: 'Individually, these guys are all great players and writers. Collectively they are a force to be reckoned with. Musically this record is intricate, heavy and melodic. With their charismatic lead singer and a drummer that sounds like John Bohnam and Dave Grohl's love child, I'm more than excited about this one.' POP EVIL are Leigh Kakaty (lead vocals), Nick Fuelling (lead and rhythm guitar, backing vocals), Dave Grahs (rhythm and lead guitar, backing vocals), Matt DiRito (bass, backing vocals) and Joshua Marunde (drums).
