Pop Evil is still supporting 3 Doors Down in Europe until early November. Those gigs are mostly in Germany and the United Kingdom. After that there are random headline dates peppering late November and December, mostly in the regional South and Midwest.

The official “Rock ‘n’ Roll Now Tour: Right Now” with RSR and Badflower starts up in Louisville, Ky., Jan, 10. From there the band spends awhile in the South, with extended runs in Florida and Texas, before eventually moving back into the West, Midwest, and Northeast, wrapping up Feb. 24 in Detroit.

“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 R.I.GHT NOW by living in the moment,” frontman Leigh Kakaty said in a statement.
