Deal With The Devil

Songfacts®:

  • This was released as the second single from Pop Evil's third album, Onyx. It acted as the follow-up to their first #1 on the active rock radio chart, "Trenches."
  • Drummer Chachi Riot said about the song: "Life can be wonderful, but life can also be extremely merciless. How do we deal with these hard times? Who do we have to deal with? Our decisions have consequences."
  • The song's music video is part two of a three part video trilogy that revolves around addiction and abuse. It goes in reverse order, with "Trenches" being the final installment and the opening part featuring the song "Behind Closed Doors."

    Directed by Johan Carlén, the trilogy follows a woman going through a transformation. In the "Deal With The Devil" clip, she shoots up heroin and is confronted by demons.
