Pop Evil To Release ‘Up’ Album In August

It’s a good day to love modern rock and roll, dear friends. Michigan’s Pop Evil have announced the release date of their next studio album, and it’s coming a whole lot sooner than you may have expected.

Up, the follow-up to 2013’s highly-successful Onyx, will arrive in stores August 21. The lead single, “Footsteps,” will hit radio on June 1. We asked the label to let us hear the track early, but they were not as into the idea as we were.

Speaking in regard to the band’s success over the last two years, frontman Leigh Kakaty offers:

“People ask me all the time, ‘What’s it like to hear your song on the radio?’ It never gets old! 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.”

“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.”

Pop Evil have a series of festival appearances scheduled throughout the summer, but as of yet have revealed no official tour plans. We’ll bring you more information as soon as additional details become available. For now, you can click below and enjoy three recent promotional videos the band released while building hype for the official album reveal.
