POP EVIL ANNOUNCES "THE VERSATILE TOUR"


According to a Press Realease -- POP EVIL announced their all-new North American tour today that will kick off this spring. Tour begins on May 8 in Toronto, hitting markets throughout Canada and the U.S. before ending on June 27 in Detroit, Michigan, the band's home state. Along the way, POP EVIL will also make an appearance at Sonic Temple Festival in Columbus, OH, on May 17. "We are so ready to get back on tour to see all our die-hard fans across North America," says vocalist Leigh Kakaty. "We're also very excited to debut and play some new material! The Versatile Tour will showcase some young up-and-coming rock bands; it will be one helluva rock show." Supporting POP EVIL will be Joyous Wolf, Brkn Love, JunkBunny, Like Machines, and Stuck on Planet Earth -- on select dates. The new tour dates will be the first return to the road for the band, who wrapped up a few dates closing out 2019 and starting 2020 on a short headline run. Kakaty and co have been hard at work in Los Angeles this winter, putting the finishing touches on the yet to be titled new L.P. due later this year. The band has teamed up with a team of producers and are eager to release new music. The latest effort will be the anticipated follow up to their S/T album that came out in 2018 to some high critical praise with outlets like LOUDWIRE saying, "their self-titled effort continues that delivers a solid top-to-bottom listen." S/T featured standout tracks like "Waking Lions," & "Be Legendary" which both landed on the U.S. Billboard Mainstream Rock Song Of The Year Charts for 2018 & 2019. Kakaty continues, "We have been grinding away, narrowing down 30 written songs to the top picks... We are in the final stretch of making music. We have a few completely finished! We have been working with multiple producers that fit each song's dynamic, and we can't wait to unleash these new songs to the world."
