February 7, 2018, a year ago
2018 will be the year Pop Evil returns to American amphitheaters in full force supporting two legendary acts, Poison and Cheap Trick, on the Poison… Nothin’ But A Good Time 2018 tour.
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.

The band is also releasing Episode 2 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.
Pop Evil recently released a music video for their new single, "Colors Bleed". The band brought back director Columbia Tatone, who also directed the recent "Waking Lions" video.
"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."
Pop Evil's fifth studio LP is out on February 16th via Entertainment One. The new self titled LP will be the 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.
