The tour continued around the world in 2023 with legs in Latin America, Europe, Japan and Australia before concluding in Melbourne, Australia on November 14, 2023.

About Pop Evil Don't take Skeletons as something macabre or negative. For Pop Evil, the title of their seventh album simply serves as a mission statement. Pop Evil first rose to international prominence with Lipstick on the Mirror, initially released on a small indie in 2008 and reissued by Universal Republic the following year. The band's momentum continued with the addition of new member, Fuelling, for 2013's Onyx; an album that put Pop Evil in the Top 40 of the Billboard 200 for the first time and boasted three No. 1 rock songs. Their next release, Up, was the No. 1 Independent Album in America and made it to #25 on the Billboard 200. It featured several top 5 rock songs ("Ways to Get High," "Take It All," and "If Only for Now") and a chart-topper with "Footsteps."
