Pop Evil will release their latest rock concoction, ‘Up,’ in August

Michigan rockers Pop Evil are back with a new album, “Up,” set to arrive on Aug. 21. The band recorded the album at Studio Litho, Robert Lang Studios and London Bridge Studios with producer Adam Kasper, known for his work with Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Foo Fighters and more. The set’s first single, “Footsteps,” will be out June 1.

“People ask me all the time, ‘What it’s like to hear your song on the radio?’ It never gets old!” frontman Leigh Kakaty said in a statement. “It’s a reminder of hard work and of having that dream sitting in your garage, trying to write a song that someone would love one day. That dream happened for our band and it’s something that we don’t want to take lightly.”

He added, “Now it’s time to step up our game and let people know we can back it all up,” he adds. “We want to prove we aren’t a one-hit wonder. We didn’t just get lucky.”

“Up” will mark Pop Evil’s follow-up to 2013’s “Onyx.” That album earned the guys three No. 1 active rock singles in “Torn to Pieces,” “Trenches” and “Deal with the Devil.”

In touring news, Pop Evil will perform May 30 at The Machine Shop in Flint, Mich., and then head overseas for a tour in Europe. They’ll circle back to North America in June for some Canadian tour dates, trailed by some U.S. gigs in July.
