POP EVIL PREMIERS 'A CRIME TO REMEMBER'

Pop Evil released a new music video for their track "A Crime To Remember."

It's being released in memory of late producer Kato Khandwala, who was killed in a motorcycle accident last month. Kato had produced countless rock albums, including the most recent by Pop Evil. Vocalist Leigh Kakaty says: "It's been a long few weeks for us. We are still grieving the loss of Kato, who was an incredible talent and an amazing human being. His daughter Paris is in need of help since his passing."

The band has set up a Go Fund Me page for his family, under the daughter's name, Paris Khandwala. Starting today, Pop Evil begins playing in American amphitheaters with Poison and Cheap Trick on the Nothin' But A Good Time tour.

  •  At the time of his death, Pop Evil said in a statement, "Today our world stopped. We lost a mentor, a brother, a leader, but most of all a good friend. Kato, thank you for helping bring positivity and fun throughout this last album we made together. Our lives are forever better having you been in them."
  • The video was directed by Columbia Tatone, who also helmed the band's last two videos, "Waking Lions" and "Colors Bleed", this is now the third music video installment we've seen from the band's most recent self-titled LP.
