Hard rock group Pop Evil released their single, “Paranoid (Crash & Burn)” today while they continue to finish their upcoming album due in early 2023 via MNRK Heavy.
Following “Eye of the Storm” which recently reached #1 at Active Rock, “Paranoid (Crash & Burn)” oscillates from something more melodic and rhythmic to pure aggression — that “get out of my head” scream is certainly going to resonate. “It’s about the voices in our head — we all have ‘em, but do we act on them?” says frontman Leigh Kakaty. “It’s a cautionary tale, about processing those voices in a positive way. It’s very aggro and uptempo, and I think it speaks to the depression and anxiety a lot of us have at this stage in our lives,” – listen/steam and watch a clip of the song performed live for the first time at the Louder Than Life festival.
Pop Evil teamed up with filmmaker Jensen Noen for the official music video that will be shared later, in the meantime, watch visualizer on YouTube.
