POP EVIL has announced an all-new North American tour today that will kick off this spring. Dates will begin on May 8 in Toronto, hitting markets throughout Canada and the U.S. before concluding on June 27 in Detroit, Michigan, the band's home state. Along the way, POP EVIL will make a highlighted appearance at Sonic Temple festival in Columbus, Ohio on May 17. Support will come from JOYOUS WOLF, BRKN LOVE, JUNKBUNNY, LIKE MACHINES and STUCK ON PLANET EARTH on select dates.
"We are so ready to get back on tour to see all our diehard fans across North America," says vocalist Leigh Kakaty. "We're also very excited to debut and play some new material! 'The Versatile Tour' will showcase some young up-and-coming rock bands; it will be one helluva rock show."
A special BLABBERMOUTH.NET presale will begin on Wednesday, March 4 at 10:00 a.m. local time and end on Thursday, March 5 at 10:00 p.m. local time. When prompted, type in the presale code "BBM2020" to access tickets before the general public.

The Citi/Live Nation pre-sale will run from Wednesday, March 4, at 10 a.m. local through Thursday, March 5 at 10 p.m. local time.
General on-sale will be this Friday, March 6 at 10 a.m. local.
The new tour dates will be a return to the road for POP EVIL, which wrapped up a few dates closing out 2019 and starting 2020 on a short headline run.
Kakaty and his bandmates have been hard at work in Los Angeles this winter, putting the finishing touches on their yet-to-be-titled new LP, due later this year. The band has been collaborating with a team of producers and is eager to release new music. The new effort will be the follow-up to POP EVIL's self-titled album, which came out in 2018 to some high critical praise.
Kakaty says: "We have been grinding away, narrowing down 30 written songs to the top picks... We are in the final stretch of making music. We have a few completely finished! We have been working with multiple producers that fit each song's dynamic, and we can't wait to unleash these new songs to the world."
