“Footsteps” is also being used in a new Dodge Ram Truck commercial and has also been a featured ESPN sync track. The single is not only the fastest charting single the band has to date, but is also the fastest independent record label single to go #1 at rock radio this year.
POP EVIL released UP on August 21, 2015 and saw the release land at #1 on the Billboard Indie Chart in the week of its release. The LP pulled in at #25 Billboard Top 200, #16 Overall and #3 Top Hard Music albums.
POP EVIL released a flurry of tracks off their LP before its release. “Footsteps” led the charge with“In Disarray,” “Dead In The Water” and “Ghost Of Muskegon” right behind it. The band went on to debut the music video for that hit single, “Footsteps.” The video was directed by long-time collaborator Johan Carlén who has helmed the last handful of visually stunning music videos the band has released including “Trenches,” “Deal With The Devil” and “Torn to Pieces.”
