Pop Evil has unveiled the dates and venues for its final tour of 2013, a headlining run that will kick off in Traverse City, Michigan this Friday (November 8th) and finish up just days before Christmas on December 21st in Covington, Kentucky. Support acts on various gigs will be Young Guns, Eve To Adam, Girl On Fire, The Letter Black, Era 9 and Black Oxygen. Pop Evil is capping off its busiest year ever, which included the release of its third album, Onyx, as well as the success of the disc's first single, "Trenches," which hit Number One on the Active Rock chart.
The new single from the CD is called "Deal With The Devil" and frontman Leigh Kakaty told us that the group set out to do something special with the song and its video: "It's definitely the most artistic single, with the video combined with the song. We wanted to really challenge our listeners visually. Dealing with substances and how we handle temptation is a big part of this business and, you know, we wanted to take a more positive light on how people deal with their demons, and move forward. And 'Deal With The Devil' is our artistic approach to that."
- "Deal With The Devil" is already Number Eight on the Active Rock chart, marking the sixth time that Pop Evil has reached the Top 10. Previous tracks to get there include "Boss' Daughter" and "Last Man Standing."
- To promote the upcoming tour, the band has dropped the price of the "Deal With The Devil" single to 69 cents on iTunes/
- Onyx follows up 2011's War Of Angels and 2008's Lipstick On The Mirror.
