POP EVIL's music video today for the song "Colors Bleed" can be seen below. The clip was once again directed by Columbia Tatone, who also helmed the recent "Waking Lions" video.
"The #MeToo movement has been a paramount inspiration to my creative endeavors," says Tatone. "The courage of individuals has inspired and empowered me, not only as a female director but as a truth-seeker.
"'Colors Bleed' highlights togetherness: standing together against global issues," he continues. "#MeToo has put the spotlight on equality, and through this video, we were able to portray the many ways we're pitted against each other and how we can't fight fire with more fire. As men and women, we have come alongside one another and stand together peacefully.
"I'm grateful and honored that POP EVIL invited me to collaborate with them and be a part of their journey."
"Colors Bleed" is taken from POP EVIL's fifth, self-titled album, which will be released on February 16 via Entertainment One. "Pop Evil" marks the recording debut with the band of British drummer Hayley Cramer, who joined POP EVIL in 2016 following the departure of Josh "Chachi" Marunde. The disc was helmed by veteran producer Kato Khandwala. The cover artwork was created by Mike Cortada and can be seen below.
