Expanding the universe introduced in the hit franchise that electrified the culture and earned $200 million at the worldwide box office, Universal Pictures’ "THE PURGE: ELECTION YEAR" reveals the next terrifying chapter that occurs over 12 hours of annual lawlessness sanctioned by the New Founders of America to keep this country great.

It’s been two years since Leo Barnes (Frank Grillo) stopped himself from a regrettable act of revenge on Purge Night.

Now serving as head of security for Senator Charlie Roan (Elizabeth Mitchell), his mission is to protect her in a run for president and survive the annual ritual that targets the poor and innocent.

But when a betrayal forces them onto the streets of D.C. on the one night when no help is available, they must stay alive until dawn…or both be sacrificed for their sins against the state.

Once again returning to collaborate with franchise creator James DeMonaco on "THE PURGE: ELECTION YEAR" are the series’ producers: Blumhouse Productions’ Jason Blum (Insidious and Ouija series, The Visit), Platinum Dunes partners Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Ouija series, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre), and writer/director DeMonaco’s longtime production partner, Sébastien K. Lemercier (Assault on Precinct 13, Four Lovers).

Sister rock 'n' roll duo Larkin Poe recently spent some time in Brooklyn with Steve Madden Music to record and shoot an exclusive session. 

The stripped down live renditions of "Stubborn Love" and "Trouble In Mind," coupled with an in depth interview is a great inside look at the endless boundaries of charm and talent this band possesses. See for yourself, HERE.

Larkin Poe's Steve Madden Music Session comes just a couple months after the release of their critically acclaimed sophomore album "RESKINNED." 

A fresh version of the original album "KIN," "RESKINNED" includes new re-mastered tracks as well as productions by Chris Seefried (Fitz and the Tantrums, Lana Del Rey), Justin Warfield (She Wants Revenge, Nico Vega) and Wax LTD (Muse, Bon Iver, Miley Cyrus, Maroon 5).

Prior to the release of "RESKINNED," Larkin Poe performed the album's lead single, "Trouble In Mind," on CONAN. Watch here: bit.ly/1oFsajV

This past April, the duo was main support on Elvis Costello's "Detour" Tour, plus they played a successful string of headline shows in cities like Washington DC, New York City, Philadelphia, Mobile and Atlanta. 

The band recently played their first stadium show, supporting Queen in Cologne, Germany on May 27th.

Next month, Larkin Poe will embark on a Northeast tour supporting The Paper Kites. 

The six-date tour will include stops in Burlington, VT, Buffalo, NY, Pittsburgh, PA, Fairfield, CT, Dennis, MA and Portland, ME. Larkin Poe will also be hitting the road once again with Elvis Costello beginning this October.

Larkin Poe is a sister duo comprised of Rebecca Lovell and Megan Lovell - descendants of tortured artist and creative genius, Edgar Allen Poe. 

At a young age, the girls were classically trained on violin and piano while being exposed to classic rock icons including Fleetwood Mac and Pink Floyd. 

Rebecca (lead singer) plays guitar, mandolin as well as violin and Megan (harmony vocals) contributes on slide guitar, lapsteel as well as dobro. 

After experimenting with an array of musical styles, they found a way to blend together a sound that channels their distinct voice.

The duo has previously hit the road as opening and backing bands for Conor Oberst, Kristian Bush (Sugarland), Dawes and Elvis Costello who praises that "they have a head start on the rest of us with the unique power and beauty of sibling harmony."

With years of domestic and international touring under their belts, and a large and loyal fan base already in place, the sisters want their fans to know that their new album "RESKINNED" is truly their coming of age project.
