New Video: Pop Evil
Pop Evil has a new music video for "Torn to Pieces." The video is a tearjerker as it focuses on frontman Leigh Kakaty and trying to deal with the loss of his father. The video works perfectly with the song and anyone who has lost a loved one can understand the lyrics. Released last May, the band’s Onyx album peaked at number three on the US Rock Albums. They are currently on tour and will be at the Concord Music Hall in Chicago on May 16. You can checkout all of their tour dates here.
New Linkin Park Album Announced
Linkin Park has announced the name, album cover, and release date for their upcoming record. The band's sixth album will be titled The Hunting Party and is due out June 17th. Their first single, "Guilty All the Same," has already been released and goes back to a true rock sound. If this is a taste of the new album then we are in for another sound change. But any true Linkin Park fan understands that’s just how the band works. The good news though? Old Linkin Park fan may enjoy the change this time as it seems to be going back in time to the old Hybrid Theory and Meteora days.
