Lead singer Leigh Kakaty had this to say about the upcoming tour, “What an exciting time to announce a full headline tour across the states as we launch our final single off UP ‘If Only For Now.’ It’s no secret, as a ‘Rock’ musician this is a very difficult era to survive in. That’s why we take it very seriously to appreciate what is happening RIGHT NOW by living in the moment. We are not taking success for granted and will continue to waive the Rock ’N’ Roll Flag! It’s time for the ROCK community to come together to spread the awareness that Rock N Roll is a force to be reckoned with. Come join us this January as we embark on our Rock ’N’ Roll quest across the states on the ROCK ’N’ ROLL NOW TOUR: RIGHT NOW!”

Ohio’s Red Sun Rising have been touring relentlessly in support of their debut album, Polyester Zeal, which achieved two straight #1 rock singles with “The Otherside” and “Emotionless.” Watch the video for their newest single “Amnesia” here. Los Angeles based rock group Badflower will release their debut EP this winter on John Varvatos/Republic Records.

Up was released last summer and landed at #1 on the Billboard Indie Chart during the first week of its release and reached #25 on the Billboard Top 200. UP was released with some serious critical accolades. Blabbermouth called it “an album that will rock the socks (and other clothes, no doubt) off their fans.” Huffington Post said the new LP “finds the Michigan band is in fine form.” News powerhouse USA Today even recognized that Pop Evil have “become a familiar presence on rock radio” in a recent feature with vocalist Leigh Kakaty. The album has seen many singles including Footsteps, In Disarray, Dead In The Water and Ghost Of Muskegon. Watch the video for Ways To Get High below.
