The guys in Pop Evil are good, old fashioned Midwesterners who are happy to rock out heavy...or unplug and go acoustic. Perhaps most exciting is that the band is currently touring with Buckcherry and will hit the road soon with Judas Priest and Whitesnake. If that's not enough, iTunes editors selected Pop Evil as one of the top new rock acts for 2008.
"It's been crazy," admits Pop Evil lead singer Leigh Kakaty. "It's been the craziest two weeks of our lives. We just finished our music video for "100 in a 55" and we got back and got to meet everyone at Universal Records and our publishing company. From there it is was immediately to the Buckcherry tour and then the Judas Priest stuff. Now...it's our highlight of the summer. The Priest and Whitesnake tour is going to be insane and we are looking forward to all those shows down the road."
Since Pop Evil just signed with Universal a couple months back, the band will rerelease their debut album Lipstick on the Mirror. The album features "Rolling Stone," a new track not on the original pressing, plus two acoustic tunes.
Lipstick on the Mirror is available now.
