Pop Evil debuted the video for its latest single this week.
The band premiered the video for its new single ‘Be Legendary‘ on Thursday. The video follows childhood versions of the band’s members as they face a pair of bullies who took every chance to make the then young friends miserable. Eventually the group stands up to the bullies before the video flashes forward to the band looking back on the site of that face-off as the song ends.

Directed by Columbia Tatone, who also directed the band’s videos for ‘A Crime to Remember,’ ‘Colors Bleed‘ and ‘Waking Lions,’ the video illustrates the song’s lyrical theme, which he discussed in a recent interview.
“This story is for the underdogs,” Tatone said. “It’s about friendship and togetherness. A reminder that although life doesn’t always ‘play fair,’ know that our trials are a gift as you build sustaining character, discovering what you’re indeed made of and what you are made for as you earn the victory on the climb back up.”
Pop evil front man Leigh Kakaty expanded on Tatone’s comments.
“When we were first writing this song, it started with this addictive yet hypnotic guitar riff,” Kakaty said. “Suddenly, I could see our friends coming together as one. I just felt like this was going to be a great opportunity to write an anthemic type of lyrical song that could possibly motivate people. Now we see all our fans posting on social media how this song motivates them in their daily lives. Plus, to see how passionate they are whenever they hear us perform it live. Time will tell just how big this song can become.”
‘Be Legendary’ is taken from the band’s self-titled 2018 album, which was released via Entertainment One. Pop Evil just wrapped the North American leg of its tour in support of the album with veteran comedian Don Jamieson..
With the North American leg of its tour done, the band will head to Europe next week for a 10-date run there. From there, the band will take a month off to rest and recharge before heading down under for a series of dates across Australia from Apr. 4 to Apr. 7.
Once the band winds down its European and Australian runs, it will return to the U.S. for another run from Apr. 10-20. The band’s current schedule is noted below.
