Rock ‘n Roll Is Not Dead
It’s already been three years ago that I spoke with the American alternative rock band Pop Evil at a press conference in Cologne, Germany, to talk about their latest album `Pop Evil’, their then new drummer Hayley Cramer, success and a bunch of other topics. Later in 2018 the Michigan-formed band went back on the road with great success and continued touring in 2019 as well. In April 2020 Pop Evil released the singles ,,Work’’ and ,,Let The Chaos Reign’’, followed by the third single ,,Breathe Again’’ in November 2020 and also officially announced the upcoming release of their sixth studio album `Versatile’, which they have been working on since Winter 2019 apparently.
Like on their previous albums Pop Evil, which contains of vocalist Leigh Kakaty, lead guitarist Nick Fuelling, rhythm guitarist Dave Grahs, bass player Matt DiRito and drummer Hayley Cramer, kept things interesting and fresh by composing with an open mind, combining heavy rock with cool beats and elements from different non rock or metal sources and they sure didn’t hold back in exploring the exciting world of sound and production. To get our readers a quick update about this exciting new album and near future plans, I presented Leigh Kakaty a few questions.
