Pop Evil has scored its first ever #1 Active Rock single. The single, ‘Trenches’ comes from the band’s third full length studio release, Onyx, which was released earlier this year. In celebration, Pop Evil is offering to its fans, the chance to download the single from iTunes for only $0.69. It’s fitting that ‘Trenches’ hit the number one spot, as front man Leigh Kakatay explains. “‘Trenches’ was written about the constant grind to survive in the music business,” he said. “Earning our first #1 means more than you could imagine! Thanks to our supporters and believers at rock radio, management, and record label. Most of all we thank the die hard Pop Evil fans for making this happen. The video for ‘Trenches’ is available online now at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DWdtN7pCZug.
This new landmark is just the latest success for the band. The band has released four Top 10 Active Rock singles, and three Top 5 singles on its sophomore record, War of Angels.
Onyx was released earlier this year. It sold over ten thousand copies in its first week of release. It makes Onyx the band’s most successful album to date. It debuted at #39 on the Billboard Top 200 and #9 on the Independent Chart.
The band is currently touring in support of Onyx and its new hit single. It will be in Aberdeen, South Dakota today.
