Pop Evil Announce Tour With Don Jamieson, Them Evils, & Savage After Midnight

Pop Evil have announced a tour with comedian Don Jamieson (“That Metal Show”). Them Evils and Savage After Midnight will also perform on select dates. Pop Evil will be launching a contest next month to choose local bands to open each date. Bands will have to submit an original cover of Pop Evil’s “Be Legendary” to enter. Pop Evil frontman Leigh Kakaty commented:

“We are excited to blend rock and comedy for this unique touring experience. We are big fans of Don; he will bring a lot of energy to the stage each night. We think this is going to be one of the most memorable tours to date with Don Jamieson, Them Evils and Savage After Midnight. Another great part of this tour is the opportunity for local bands to win our contest to be the opening band each night. Can’t wait to see everyone in 2019.”

Pop Evil Premiere “A Crime To Remember” Music Video

Pop Evil have premiered a new video for their song “A Crime To Remember.” This track is from the band’s self-titled album, which was released in February.

Leigh Kakaty commented:

“[Director] Columbia [Tatone] has delivered what we feel is the most powerful video to date for Pop Evil. The concept keeps an open book storyline on how human beings view the world at the moment. Our hope is to raise awareness that it’s time for all of us to come together and be united.”

The clip was released in memory of the group’s late producer Kato Khandwala. Kakaty added the following about that:

“It’s been a long few weeks for us. We are still grieving the loss of Kato who was an incredible talent and an amazing human being. His daughter Paris is in need of help since his passing, donations can be made to her here.”
