LISTEN: Pop Evil Release New Song ‘Dead Reckoning’ Featuring Fit For a King
West Michigan's own Pop Evil have released another single off their upcoming album, and it features a special guest.
Pop Evil Release New Song "Dead Reckoning"
Check out Pop Evil's "Dead Reckoning" featuring Fit for a King frontman Ryan Kirby below.
Pop Evil bassist Joey "Chicago" Walser created the concept and instrumentals for "Dead Reckoning", with singer Leigh Kakaty co-writing the final song.
The band says producer WZRD BLD heard the demo and immediately suggested Kirby as a perfect fit for a vocal collaboration.
Describing the song, the band said,
Dead Reckoning' is about a clear and unwavering decision a person makes within themselves.
"Dead Reckoning" is off Pop Evil's upcoming album, "Skeletons", out March 17, 2023.
The band says, "This album is about us as a band stripping everything down to the bones."
Previous singles from the album include "Eye of the Storm" and "Paranoid (Crash & Burn)."
Kakaty says about the latter,
It’s about the voices in our head — we all have ‘em, but do we act on them? It’s a cautionary tale, about processing those voices in a positive way.
