POP EVIL Finally Sets Release Date For ‘War Of Angels’!
Michigan’s Pop Evil have been sitting on their sophomore album, War of Angels since last year. The original release date was set for February 2011, but the band had a difference of opinion with their then label Universal. Last week it was finally announced that eOne Music were wise enough to pick the guys up, and now they know when the album will finally hit the streets. July 5th is the new eOne release date for War Of Angels, which promises to be one of 2011′s best hard rock/metal releases.
As previously mentioned in our review of the album, every track on War of Angels could be a single. Pop Evil will be the first to tell you their upcoming release is in many ways really their debut album. Their first, Lipstick On The Mirror in retrospect is more of a sketch of the band. A tease of what might be. With War of Angels they have painted in broad strokes, with a record full of emotive aural stories and straight-up balls out arena rockers.
In the meantime they’ve released the single, “Last Man Standing”, and a free track, “Save The World” is available on their Facebook page. All ya have to do is LIKE ‘em. And what’s not to like? A foundation of 80?s arena rock with a modern influence built on top. War of Angels is a dozen excellently crafted hard rock masterpieces of inspiration, innuendo and melodic power. This month the band released the album’s second single, “Monster You Made”, and they will make a video for this one, and have been having fans send in their own “Monster You Made” videos.
So for fans who have been waiting patiently, the wait is nearly over. Less than a month until the War of Angels begins.
