The initial years of Pop Evil were challenging as they didn't have enough money to fund their demo songs. However, in 2004, the band released their first independent album 'War Of The Roses' and a three-song EP named 'Ready Or Not'. The latter had 'Somebody Like You' that became a favorite among the concert-goers.
'Hero', '100 In A 55', 'Somebody Like You' and 'Stepping Stone' from the band's debut studio album 'Lipstick On The Mirror' became radio favorite tracks upon release in 2008. So far, the band has released six completed studio albums- 'Lipstick On The Mirror', 'War Of Angels', 'Onyx', 'Up', 'Pop Evil', and 'Versatile'. The band is still touring the sixth one, 'Versatile'. 'Pop Evil' had signed a contract with a Universal Music Group subsidiary for Lipstick On The Mirror. The partnership did not last long, and the band broke its ties with Universal in 2011, which subsequently delayed the release of 'War Of Angels' which was released via eOne Music. UFC fighter Frank Mir was cast in the video for the first single, 'Last Man Standing'. The band released 'Trenches' in February 2013 as a part of their third studio album- Onyx. 'Trenches' not only became the band's first national single on Rock Radio but also won them an award at the Radio Contraband Rock Radio Awards.
