Photo by LeAnne Mueller

Michigan-based hard-rock outfit Pop Evil release their long awaited sophomore album, War of Angels (eOne), on July 5, which features the hit singles “Last Man Standing” and “Monster You Made,” a song which frontman Leigh Kakaty says depicts what the record is all about. In anticipation of the new album, the band is exclusively unveiling the new music video for the latter track–directed by Robby Starbuck, who has previously helmed clips by August Burns Red and Asking Alexandria–right here! Watch it below and let us know what you think in the comments!

    Wow-that was really done well! I love this band. War Of Angels has blown me away. I especially love the fact that they brought great bold vocals and harmonies and some tempestuous romance in there for good measure. Excellent album, I highly recommend it.
    And would love to have one of those mirrors.

    Powerful….. though the note at the end has me perplexed…it looked like the song and video were going along together and then at the end..?? Is he saying goodbye to death or to the girl that was in the video? Almost seems like a suicide note…call me sappy but I was hoping that he was going to walk into a rehab at the end :P   Can someone clarify for me? I think I may be missing a bit of the concept on this one….BUT I STILL LOVE IT and the song!!!!

    I loves me some Pop Evil but am I the only one that notices a ton of similarities to the 100 in a 55 video?  When it first started I thought I was going to be viewing the same video.

  • beth

    blown away, not just by the album… but by this video, too! Robby Starbuck did an amazing job! i’m sure i’m going to watch it again and again!!

  • Dozia

    Great video! They keep getting better and better! See similarities to “100″, but video matches the depth of the song. If MTV gets rid of all of the reality show and back to some music, we may get a chance to see this vid more and more!

  • Preston

    this is a very good song and video. POP EVIL has made great music and the videos are touching. Great job on music and the videos.

  • Lex

    I <3 PoP Evil and this whole album is amazing! I agree the beginning is a lot like 100 in 55 video, Great job but i think for the future they need to start showing more of the rest of the band not just leigh (who is wonderful dont get me wrong). I think it be nice to show the other guys like tony and matt emotional and part of the song too.  It would have looked really cool if each member had like a shot in front of all the mirrors showing they too are "monsters" and trying to find themeselves.
    But what do i know i am just a huge music fan not a big time video director lol

  • Amber

    This is like a remake of 100 in a 55…. lame.

  • Lee Miller

    Another amazing video and song from my most favorite band in the whole world! Top notch, class A stuff from the greatest thing to come out of Michigan since the automobile and Kid Rock!!! My two fav. songs off War of Angels are Boss’ Daughter and Last Man Standing. Monster You Made is in a close third ;)

  • Teri Bruffey

    Hrm, not sure what people are talking about a resemblance to 100 in a 55 video – the videos are totally different – maybe some same notes?  WTF?  Anyway, I do agree that we need to see more of the other band members since all of the are so ***HOT***!   ..and I am still waiting for my chance to dress Matt up like Manson etc….

  • Teri Bruffey

    oh yeah – and you look extra cute without the headband Leigh :)

  • Cindy Overaitis

    I love the video I am so proud of all of you. You have come along way and you should all be proud of what you have accomplished. I have always believed in you.

    I think people might be referring to the story-line. You know with the chick walking out and all. The storytelling is different though. Guess it all depends on how each individual views the video. I love it guys…of course!! Amazing song and amazing video from a bunch of amazing guys!! <3

    I LOVE this video! This song is so flexible in the ways it helps people cope. No matter what the monster we all have to deal with one at some point in our lives. Mirror shots were awesome, band scenes were awesome, all in all the whole video was awesome. Please don’t ever stop making beautiful, beautiful music! :)

  • Coachaalbrecht

    great song, great video, what more can you say!

  • Wrightljw

    WHAT AN AMAZING BAND…WITH POWERFUL SONGS…AND WHAT AN INCREDIBLY BEAUTIFUL VOICE…. 

  • Joe

    Why is it that every video by these guys starts out with Leigh sitting on a bed and/or in front of a mirror playing acoustic guitar? Out of original ideas? Guess you may as well go with what you know even though it doesn’t really work. Nice try, better luck next time.
