Leigh Kakaty of Pop Evil says the band has “been grinding away, narrowing down 30 written songs to the top picks” for their upcoming album

Michigan’s Pop Evil has been busy in Los Angeles working on their new studio album, which is due out later this year, but that’s doesn’t mean they’re shying away from the road.

The hard rockers just announced a round of North American headlining tour dates, and they’re taking Joyous Wolf, Brkn Love, JunkBunny, Like Machines and Stuck on Planet Earth as support on select dates.

The spring and summer tour, called the Versatile Tour, will kick off May 8 in Toronto, Canada, and close out with a show in Pop Evil’s homestate of Michigan June 27 in Detroit.

“We are so ready to get back on tour to see all our diehard fans across North America,” frontman Leigh Kakaty said in a statement. “We’re also very excited to debut and play some new material! The Versatile Tour will showcase some young up-and-coming rock bands; it will be one helluva rock show.”

For ticket information, head to the band’s official website.

Regarding the new music, Kakaty said, “We have been grinding away, narrowing down 30 written songs to the top picks… We are in the final stretch of making music. We have a few completely finished! We have been working with multiple producers that fit each song’s dynamic, and we can’t wait to unleash these new songs to the world.”

Pop Evil’s latest album is their 2018 self-titled release, which features the rock singles “Waking Lions,” “Be Legendary” and “A Crime to Remember.”
