New Pop Evil Album ‘War of Angels’ to Be Released June 28 [NSFW]

Hometown boys Pop Evil rocked the F.Y.E. stage at Rock On The Range this past Sunday. This was the first time I have seen them outside of Michigan and the crowd response was just as raucous as any Grand Rapids show. Frontman Leigh and guitarist Tony stopped by the media tent to talk about their newfound freedom with E1 Music and finally releasing the oft-delayed War of Angels.

For whatever reason, Pop Evil’s previous record label would not support the band’s efforts to promote War of Angels and kept them from releasing the record. The resolution was finally found, symbolized by Leigh tearing up PE’s old contract during their ROTR set. The singer announced that War of Angels would be released June 28 via E1 Music.

“We’re in a better place with a company that believes in the band and most importantly believes in the music,” said Leigh. “It’s so exciting to have a label that now can not only help Pop Evil get to the next level, but help West Michigan get to an opportunity where hopefully we can help bring money back to (the area).”

Added Leigh: “We’re so proud of the fact we come from Grand Rapids, and we’re so proud of the fact that GRD broke our band.”

“Everything happens for a reason the way it went down with the label,” Tony said. “In all honesty…probably the best thing that could happened to us. We’re still here and ready to kick this thing into full throttle.”

Check out the full clip below. Please excuse our coarse language. Mark your calendars folks; new Pop Evil album War of Angels comes out June 28!
