If rock is dead, then POP EVIL is definitive proof of the afterlife. The Michigan-formed blue-collar band have created an unpredictable album, as its name suggests, which presents their most ambitious rebirth yet. Featuring the #1 mainstream rock hit single “Breathe Again”—their sixth #1 single to date—alongside heavyweight tracks “Set Me Free,” “Let The Chaos Reign,” and Top 10 single “Work,” VERSATILE is filled with fist-pumping anthems and timeless power ballads. Stream/download VERSATILE now at https://www.popevil-versatile.com.

Beyond the success story told by the charts, the 1 million units of “total activity” across their catalog, and the over 600 million streams of their songs on major platforms, POP EVIL’s greatest strength is the diverse group of people captivated by the band’s relatable storytelling and undeniable catchiness. These are fans earned, city by city, on tours with a modern rock playlist’s worth of genre titans.
