Toronto, ON – February 6, 2018 – 2018 will be the year Pop Evil returns to American arenas in full force supporting two legendary acts, Poison and Cheap Trick on the Nothin’ But A Good Time 2018 tour. The tour includes a show in Toronto on June 19 at Budweiser Stage. See below for a complete list of dates.
Vocalist, Leigh Kakaty, weighs in: “This spring is going to be an exciting one for Pop Evil, that’s for sure! What a fantastic opportunity to bring our live show across the country on the big stage with such legends like Poison and Cheap Trick.”
Produced by Live Nation, tickets for various cities will go on sale starting Friday, February 9th and Saturday, February 10th. VIP Packages for Pop Evil will be available for all dates, details for which can be found at www.popevilvip.com. Because of this, Pop Evil is canceling their European appearances at Rock Am Ring, Rock Im Park, and Sweden Rock. The band will make up these dates down the road, and they will be well worth the wait!
The band is also releasing episode two of their video series, chronicling their time spent at Sound Emporium Studios in Los Angeles this past summer. Directed by close friend, Ryan Doyle, of Video Vision 360, the video documents the band living together as they embarked on the writing process for their fifth studio LP. Watch the first episode here.
Pop Evil released a music video for their newest single, Colors Bleed, bringing back director, Columbia Tatone, who also directed the recent Waking Lions video. Waking Lions is currently at #3 on the Rock Charts, rapidly approaching the #1 spot.
"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. #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."
This is the second song we've heard from Pop Evil off their new LP slated for release next month. The band debuted Waking Lions back in October, and it is quickly approaching Top 5 at Rock Radio with no signs of slowing down.
Both Waking Lions and Colors Bleed serve as iTunes instant gratification tracks, meaning fans who pre-order the new LP on iTunes will get the songs as instant downloads.
Pop Evil also had the opportunity to have their song, Be Legendary, debut on ESPN during last week's 2018 CFB Playoff National Championship game. ESPN loved it so much they picked up the song for the rest of the NCAA College Basketball Season.
The band will soon embark on the Music Over Words Tour, which will serve as the official kickoff for their recently announced all-new, self-titled LP. Additionally, Pop Evil is confirmed for festival dates Carolina Rebellion on Friday, May 5th , and Fort Rock on Sunday, April 29th .
The massive US tour kicks off on February 14th in Sault Ste. Marie, MI at the Kewadin Casino. The band will hit both sides of the U.S. coast before wrapping things up at The Fillmore in Detroit on April 6th. Band VIP goes on sale Tuesday at www.popevilvip.com. Palaye Royale and label-mates, Black Map, will serve as support for all dates.
Pop Evil will release Pop Evil, their fifth studio LP on February 16th , 2018, via Entertainment One.
The band brought on veteran producer, Kato Khandwala, and have been hard at work since early June. The band spent most of the summer in Nashville, TN at Studio A in Sound Emporium Studios and finished up the album at Sphere Studios in Los Angeles, CA earlier this month.
The new self-titled LP will be the highly anticipated follow up to UP, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard U.S, Independent Albums Chart, #3 on the Billboard Top Hard Rock Albums Chart, and #25 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart in the week of its release. UP produced four top 5 singles with Footsteps, If Only For Now, Ways to Get High and Take It All. Footsteps not only reached #1, but went on to be the longest #1 single of the band's career.
