Pop Evil is back with new music for the first time since their 2018 self-titled studio album.
The Michigan-based band dropped two new tracks today: “Let the Choas Reign” and “Work.” Both songs, which are embedded below, will be featured on Pop Evil’s forthcoming sixth album.
In an interview with Loudwire, Leigh Kakaty said of “Let the Choas Reign,” “This track reflects the anxiety of the times although that was not its intention, but definitely fits the moment. It gives me hope that we can beat this pandemic so we all can get back to those little things we use to take for granted.”
As for “Work,” Kakaty added, “‘Work’ was a challenging, but a very welcoming track for me that captured the moment. It actually came together so naturally that I didn’t try and over think it. It took me about 24 hours to finally listen to the demo after we cut it to appreciate something that could be special for the band. It’s so different than anything we have ever done before. The musical texture really has a lot of depth and out-of-the-box thinking and we can’t wait to add it to our set list. Vocally, we experimented with some different approaches that lead to the final product. Our producer for this song, Kevin Hissink, really did an amazing job to take me out of my comfort zone vocally.”
