Pop Evil is an American post-grunge band from Muskegon, Michigan. It was formed in 2001 by Leigh Kakaty, Dave Grahs, Jamie Nummer, and Dylan Allison. Lead guitarist Shane Allison was originally added as a temporary/studio guitarist for the band, but then was invited to become a full-time member in early 2007. Around that time, bassist Jamie Nummer left the band for personal reasons, and was replaced by Matt DiRito, formerly of Muskegon rock band Archangel.
They are currently on tour as the opening band for the American leg of Judas Priest's "British Steel 30th Anniversary" tour. Other bands they've toured with include Saliva, Tesla, Puddle of Mudd, Theory of a Deadman, Framing Hanley, Saving Abel, and Whitesnake, among others.
