Pop Evil and its fans have a lot to celebrate this week.
The band’s single, ‘Survivor‘ has officially reached #9 on Billboard’s Rock & Alternative Airplay Chart. The achievement makes the single the band’s 18th overall single to reach a Top 10 position on any of Billboard’s charts.
The song is featured in the band’s latest album, Versatile and is just one of the record’s songs to reach a Top 10 charting position. ‘Breathe Again‘ peaked at #1 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Airplay Chart in May. ‘Work,’ yet another of the album’s singles, also reached the top spot on one of Billboard’s charts.
In other news, the band has launched a mobile Rubik’s Cube game that it has dubbed “The Cube.” Audiences can download the game here.
Front man Leigh Kakaty said the recent downtime that he spent as the result of a positive COVID test gave him lots of time to play the game himself.
“Over the last few weeks, I played the hell out of this game during my Covid isolation,” said Kakaty. “Just warning everyone, it’s not an easy game to nail down. Good luck beating Hayley’s score, she currently has the highest score on the bus…”
In more news still, the band continues its tour in support of Versatile tonight in Savannah, GA. The performance is one of a handful of dates that was re-scheduled due to Kakaty’s temporary sidelining. The band’s current tour schedule is noted below with the recently rescheduled dates noted in red.
