The tour has extra meaning for the band, rounding out a year which gave them their latest LP ONYX, which recently surpassed 100,000 copies sold domestically – a feat not easily accomplished in the current state of rock. “For the past year and half we have taken Pop Evil to new heights with ‘Onyx,’” says frontman Leigh Kakaty. ONYX produced three number one singles at Active Rock Radio with its tracks: “Trenches,” “Deal with the Devil” and “Torn to Pieces.“
Kakaty concludes, “It’s now time to conclude this incredible journey and prepare for the next chapter in 2015! We are looking forward to celebrating our biggest album yet and seeing everyone out on the up coming tour to share in the festivities!”
POP EVIL released Onyx, their third studio LP last year and has taken the band on their wildest ride yet. The LP debuted at #39 on the Billboard Top 200 and #9 on the Independent Chart. The band recently released a Deluxe Bonus Edition and is available exclusively through Best Buy.
The band attributes their success to non-stop hard work, constant touring and writing great songs.
The Aquarian weekly put it best when they said, “This group is the average American heavy rock fan’s dream.”
