Pop Evil Announces New, Self-Titled Album

Story by Anne Erickson

Michigan rock band Pop Evil spent much of last year writing and recording their upcoming studio album, and now, the set has a title and release date.

Pop Evil will unleash their self-titled, fifth studio record on Feb. 16. The upcoming album will be the first to feature the band’s new drummer, Hayley Cramer, to boot.

In addition to dropping the news of a new album this week, the Pop Evil crew also released a new single, “Waking Lions,” which is out now via digital download. The band also released a music video for “Waking Lions,” which is streaming on YouTube.

“This is a Dawn of a New Day for Pop Evil,” frontman Leigh Kakaty said in a statement. “The new lineup feels like a whole new chapter for us. We could not be more proud to lead off this new album cycle with ‘Waking Lions,’ sending a positive message to our fans.”

“Pop Evil” is the band’s follow-up to 2015’s “Up.” The group get its start in the early 2000s in North Muskegon, Michigan, near Grand Rapids, and unleashed its debut, full-length studio album, “Lipstick on the Mirror,” in 2008.

The group will embark on a short late fall, early winter tour starting Nov. 16 in at Manchester Music Hall in Lexington, Kentucky, and running through a Dec. 1 show at The Apollo Theatre in Belvidere, Illinois. Find a full roster of tour dates via PopEvil.com.
