As of March 7th, Popolya has tragically been missing in exile for almost 2 weeks along with one million other Ukrainian refugees, fighting temperatures below zero degrees in their horrific nightmare. “OMG, this is insanity!” Said in horror by Popolya’s producer; Brett Duncan of Mega Cake Records, Inc. (MCR) “The last corresponded I had with her was on the album’s original release date Feb 23rd, and coincidentally, this was the day I asked Popolya if she had any concerns of war with Russian troops at their border” (she replied) “Everything is safe here and I do believe that nothing will happen at all because we all are tired of this war which has been lasting for 8 years already.”

Alt. Rock Band EUPHEMIA RISE Drop New Lyric Video “Matthew 16:26”
“The lyrics are about the strong bond between two people who are in the same boat living on the wild side. The title refers to the bible verse: “For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?” but the reference is more sarcastic than dramatic, as expressed in the flippant final phrase ‘What is the price of a soul like mine?’. The title is in a way also a tribute to Matthew Bellamy, as the song was composed using piano arpeggios that were inspired by Muse. ”
