MICHIGAN BAND SUPPORT LOCAL VENUE THE MACHINE SHOP WITH LIMITED-EDITION COLLABORATIVE T-SHIRT
Toronto, ON - May 21, 2021 - Today, marks the release of the sixth studio album, Versatile, from rock titans Pop Evil. It’s an unpredictable album, as its name suggests, that highlights the group’s distinctive juxtaposition of cinematic melodies, heavy grooves, fist-pumping anthems and timeless power ballads. Out via Entertainment One (eOne), the record added a sixth #1 single to the band’s career with the hit Breathe Again in addition to the Top 10 radio track Work and two additional powerful singles (Let The Chaos Reign and Set Me Free). Stream/download Versatile now here. A CD version is available exclusively via Target, which also includes a bonus disc including the track listing from their 2020 #1’s LP which consists of their previous five #1 singles.
Pop Evil’s greatest strength is the diverse group of people captivated by the band’s relatable storytelling and undeniable catchiness. The Michigan-based blue-collar band-- which consists of vocalist Leigh Kakaty alongside lead guitarist Nick Fuelling, rhythm guitarist Dave Grahs, bassist Matt DiRito and drummer Hayley Cramer—have teamed up with their hometown venue The Machine Shop to release an exclusive limited-edition collaborative t-shirt with 100% of funds going to support the venue. Purchase the Shop Evil tee before it sells out here.
“The Machine Shop and Pop Evil have some many amazing memories together,” Pop Evil collectively state. “They were one of our first venues we’ve headlined in, Kevin and his whole staff are family. We can’t wait to get back in the venue, but until then we wanted to do a collaboration tee shirt to hold the die-hard fans over, get your exclusive Shop Evil Tee before it’s gone!”
