Pop Evil releases 'Lipstick on a Mirror'

Pop Evil performs during the 2009 Rock On The Range festival at Columbus Crew Stadium on May 17, 2009Fabled 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.

Lipstick on the Mirror  is now available on iTunes.
