Pop Evil frontman Leigh Kakaty has tested positive for COVID-19.

As a result, the “Breathe Again” rockers have rescheduled eight of their upcoming tour dates, running from August 17 in Des Moines, Iowa, to August 25 in Jacksonville, North Carolina.

“To our Evilz, we always want to be fully transparent with our fans and the status of our shows,” Pop Evil says in a statement. “All of our band members and crew have been vaccinated prior to us starting tour. Yesterday, and again this morning, Leigh Kakaty tested positive for COVID-19. Leigh wanted to make sure his test wasn’t a false positive before postponing any more shows.”

Pop Evil plans to resume the tour August 27 in Virginia Beach. They’re supporting their new album, Versatile, which dropped in May.
