Pop Evil debuted a brand new music video Friday.

The band debuted the video for the re-mix of its hit single ‘Trenches.’ The re-mix features a guest appearance from veteran rapper Darryl “DMC” McDaniels of Run D.M.C. fame. The pairing was not limited to a soundstage. McDaniels also joined Pop Evil for a performance of the re-mix during the band’s performance at this year’s Rock on the Range Festival in Columbus, Ohio. And along with his appearance, Pop Evil also brought on stage thirteen marines to present the “Lima Company of Eyes Freedom Memorial.” The memorial featured portraits of twenty-three marines from the USMC’s Lima Company, 3rd Batallion, 25th Marines.

Staff Sergeant-USMC Tony Storey shared his thoughts on being on stage with the band, taking in the audience’s cheers and gratitude for their service. “The crowd seemed to be a rolling mass of people, jumping in unison, fueled by the energy of the band,” he said. “In my mind, I thought, ‘People thank us for serving, so they can enjoy times like this, but it’s because they enjoy times like this that we willingly fight for them.’ I see the rowdy crowd rocking out with Pop Evil, with DMC, being watched over by the United States Marines, it personified this idea.”
