American rock band Pop Evil are set to release their fifth studio album Pop Evil in March 2018, via Entertainment One.

“This is a Dawn of a New Day for Pop Evil,” said vocalist Leigh Kakaty. “The new lineup feels like a whole new chapter for us. We could not be more proud to lead off this new album cycle with Waking Lions, sending a positive message to our fans.” Pop Evil teamed up with Columbia Tatone on the video and couldn’t be happier with the outcome. “Columbia brought a unique and distinctive approach with her visuals for our new music video. We really feel she delivered the energy that the song carries.”

The new album saw British drummer Hayley Cramer join the band full time. For the album, the band brought on veteran producer Kato Khandwala and went into the studio in June 2017. The band spent most of the summer in Nashville, TN at Studio A in Sound Emporium Studios and finished up the album at Sphere Studios in Los Angeles, CA in October 2017.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
