The men of Pop Evil have officially released the video for the new single, ‘Purple.’ The single comes from the band’s sophomore full length effort, War of Angels. The video culls footage of the band on tour against the song. the combination really brings home the lyrical content, with front man Leigh Kakaty singing, “I’ve never been down this road before/As the days go by/I only miss you more/I thought one day/We would touch the sky/Never grow old/Never gonna die/I never realized/What you meant to me/Till I tried drowning out your memory/Like it’s not over/It only hurts when I’m sober.” It’s a standard song of a lost love. But the way that Kakaty sings these bittersweet lyrics set to the song’s video makes the song that much harder hitting. Fans can check out the video now online at http://www.vevo.com/watch/pop-evil/purple/USKO11090220#/watch/pop-evil/purple/USKO11090220.
