The hard rock band Pop Evil were formed from the ashes of various other bands in their home town of Michigan in 2001. Their first foray into recording was in 2004 with an independently released album and a three-song EP titled 'War of the Roses'. It was to be a further four years before the band released their debut studio album 'Lipstick On the Mirror', a collection of 15 self-penned songs which spawned four singles, three of which made it into the Mainstream US Rock Charts. Pop Evil's singles were perfect for US rock radio and the band enjoyed significant airplay across the States particularly with the tracks 'Hero' and '100 in a 55' which eventually peaked at number eight in the US mainstream rock listings. The follow up album was 'War of Angels' which generated another four hit singles, three of which made the top ten in the US Rock Charts with 'Last Man Standing' achieving the most commercial success when it reached number seven in the charts. In 2013 the band had their first national number one when the single 'Trenches' from the album 'Onyx' topped the US charts.
The band have continued to build on their success and are now an established mainstream rock act in the USA and Europe.Artist biography compiled by BDS/West 10. All rights reserved.
