When North Muskegon, Michigan native Leigh Kakaty formed Pop Evil, he chose the band's name for a reason. He loved hard rock songs with good melodies but he also dug loud, crunchy guitars and propulsive metal rhythms. For Kakaty, it's a natural duality that came from growing up in the Great Lakes and it eventually became the raison d'etre of his band.

"It's just a natural part of who I am,"​ Kakaty says. ​"When I was growing up we'd roll out to the beach on the weekdays with an acoustic guitar and everyone would kick it. And on the weekends, we'd turn up the amps and, boom, everyone would try to break windows. It was all about the heaviness. And I needed both of those elements - the melodic and the metallic."

Five albums into Pop Evil's career, combining strong hooks with knockout punches is more important than ever. The band's new record, simply called ​Pop Evil​, is a surging, contemporary sounding release that incorporates metal, alternative, hard rock and even electronic music. In the wake of the band's peppy, upbeat 2015 album ​Up​, it's a wake-up call, a musical rebirth that inspired the band to self-title the release, partially since they'd never done so. Their first album, ​Lipstick on the Mirror​ came out in 2008, and while it introduced listeners to the band's core sound with well-received singles like "​Hero​" and "​100 in a 55​," Pop Evil has grown exponentially since then.
