Fabled Michigan rock band Pop Evil has signed with Universal Republic Records and released Lipstick On A Mirror today.
The album has been re-mixed and re-mastered, with a brand new song, “Rolling Stone,” and a riveting acoustic rendition of their signature song “100 In A 55,” which is already gaining traction online, even before its official release to multiple radio formats.
In support of the release, Pop Evil will sweep the nation on a two month long tour supporting Judas Priest and Whitesnake beginning July 5th in Wallingford, Conn.
Led by larger-than-life frontman Leigh Kakaty, the band is already the stuff of legend in their native Michigan and throughout the Midwest for its pull-no-punches brand of searing rock. Billed as post-grunge and pre-revival of authentic-to-the core alternative hard rock, the fierce fivesome has earned their stripes as rigorous, crowd pleasing live rockers, criss-crossing the U.S. for years, rallying fans at dyed-in-the- wool rock vestiges such as the Intersection in their home turf of Grand Rapids, Mich. and the Rumble Rally in Mason, Ohio.
Pop Evil has sustained a formidable grassroots following thanks to constant touring and an intricately timed scattering of releases refining their trademark sound. Lipstick On A Mirror also features Pop Evil signature songs such as “Another Romeo & Juliet,” “Hero,” “Stepping Stone,” And “Somebody Like You,” among others.
Fans are encouraged to enter the Pop Evil guitar giveaway contest for a chance to win a Dean Z-X electric guitar signed by the band.
