Pop Evil singer Leigh Kakaty was asked in an interview with Loud TV when fans could expect to hear the band’s follow-up to its 2015 album Up. Kakaty responded, “It’s coming. I think we’re gonna try to do it around spring next year. We’re in the fourth quarter of this album cycle in the U.S. as well. I think we’ve got one more big tour top of the year and then this album (cycle) is over. We’re gonna go back and start to get creative again and get ready for that fifth album.”
He continued, “I can’t believe we’re already to five albums; it’s crazy. I mean, I just feel like I turned a corner and we just did the first one. So it’s crazy to think, and we really do believe that the stage is set for this to be our biggest and baddest — ‘bad’ in a good way, that is — baddest album yet.”
- The new album will mark the recording debut with the group of drummer Hayley Cramer, who joined the band earlier this year.
- Cramer said about the band’s songwriting process, “There’s pieces of a puzzle, and we’re collecting those pieces and we’re putting them in a box, and then when we get to March, it’s when we join the dots and we put the puzzle together.”
- Pop Evil will kick off one more tour in support of Up on January 10th, 2017 in Louisville, Kentucky, wrapping up on February 24th in Detroit. Support will come from Red Sun Rising and Badflower.
