  • Pop Evil

    Pop Evil

    Hard Rock

    When North Muskegon, Michigan native Leigh Kakatyformed Pop Evil, he chose the band’s name for a reason. He loved hard rock songs with good melodies but he also dug loud, crunchy guitars and propulsive metal rhythms. For Kakaty, it’s a natural duality that came from growing up in the Great Lakes and it eventually became the raison d’etre of his band. “It’s just a natural part of who I am,”Kakaty says. “When I was growing up we’d roll out to the beach on the weekdays with an acoustic guitar and everyone would kick it. And on the weekends, we’d turn up the amps and, boom, everyone would try to break windows. It was all about the heaviness. And I needed both of those elements –the melodic and the metallic.” Five albums into Pop Evil’s career, combining strong hooks with knockout punches is more importantthan ever. Pop Evil is set to release new music this springthat showcases not only their growth, but their versatility as a band.Pop Evil’s upcoming music showcases Kakaty and his bandmates –rhythm guitarist Dave Grahs, lead guitarist Nick Fuelling, bassist Matt DiRito and drummer Hayley Cramer –at their most inspiring.

    Joyous Wolf

    Hard Rock

    Joyous Wolf is a Rock band from Southern California formed in 2014 by vocalist Nick Reese, guitarist Blake Allard, bassist Greg Braccio, and drummer Robert Sodaro. Reese and Sodaromet on their first day of 6th grade during student orientation. They went to different high schools where Sodaro would go on to befriend Braccio. During that time Reese, by chance, met Allard in the acoustic room at Guitar Center where they would jam CCR’s “Born on the Bayou”. There was an immediate dynamic between the two that ultimately led to an exchange of information. Months later Reese reached out to both Sodaro and Allard with the interest of starting a new project with them. Braccio would soon follow suit. In the waning months of 2014 early jam sessions would yield the foundation of what Joyous Wolf has become. Fusing together influences ranging from Heavy Metal to Delta Blues, Joyous Wolf creates an expressive, high-energy fingerprint that separates themselves from their contemporaries in the realm of Modern Rock.

    BRKN Love

    Rock

    Lines still stretch around the block at clubs, warehouses, and theaters on a nightly basis worldwide. Amplifiers still blare out of suburban garages everywhere. Guitars, drums, and bass still translate the emotion and energy of a generation better than anything. No matter what prevailing opinion may be, rock musicstillmaintains its foothold just behind the pop culture curtain—as if in the wings waiting to return. BRKN LOVE carry on this tradition, while evolving it. Toronto singer and guitarist Justin Benlolo envisions a fresh future for the genre on the band’s 2019 full-length debut for Spinefarm Records produced by Joel Hamilton [Highly Suspect, Pretty Lights].“When I first thought about starting a band, it needed all of the elements of rock ‘n’ rollthatI respond to—big guitars, big drums, and big vocals,” he explains. “I didn’t want it to be too complex. It had to be something everybody could digest inashort and sweet format. It’s alternative, but it’s also heavy. I try to get right to the point. There are so manyof these kids still showing up to shows andmoshingto real rock music. That’s refreshing. There’s still a place for something authentic. That’s what I want to provide.”Born and raised in Canada, Justin cut his teeth by obsessing over thelikes of Soundgarden and Led Zeppelin in his youth, while learning how to write music. With the advent of bands such as Royal Blood and Highly Suspect, he recognized the potential for a “different kind of band—that’s not too macho and slick, but edgy enough for the punks.” Justinstarted tracking demos for BRKN LOVE andshortly after determined thatJoelHamilton was the perfect producer. Joel responded to the tracks byinvitinghim to Brooklyn to record at Studio G. Together, they cut the 13 tracks that would comprise the album as the band landed a deal with Spinefarm Records after a New York showcase. Recordedlive to tape in the studio, the sound preserves “a raw, real, and alive”feeling in the riffing tempered by “relatable and emotional lyrics.”Now, the first single “Shot Down” hinges on thick guitars before Justin’s howling takes hold. It seesaws between dirty blues verses and a skyscraping refrain as he chants, “Landslide, shaking the crowd...Shot down in the bottom of a valley!”Written at the infamous Mate’s Studio in North Hollywood, CA, it captures all of the seedy,glorious grit of the San Fernando Valley.“It’s got a lot of sexual innuendos,” he goes on. “On the contrary, it can be interpreted as a massive disaster song. There’s a landslide shaking the ground, and we’re in the middle of the valley. The world’s ending as we’re playing away. You could also interpret as about a girl.”The airy harmonies and syncopated riffs of “I Can’t Lie” takedeadaim at West Coast fakery and “friends who stabbed me in the back for no reason” with a hypnotic and heartfelt chorus. Everything culminates on “In Your Hands,” which slides from a clean intro towardsa wall of fuzz and his most impressive vocal performance. The latter serves as “an ode to life that we’re going to ride the universe’s wavewithout worrying.”In the end, BRKN LOVE represent a new era for rock music that’s as powerful as it is emotional.
     
    “The name represents who Iam,” Justin leaves off. “You can honestly be a hopeless romantic and play tough music. Most of the lyrics deal with love and loss. That’s the vibe. You can share your feelings and still rock your face off at the end of the day.It’s what I’m going to do.”
