EVILE POSTS TOUR UPDATE AHEAD OF BLOODSTOCK FESTIVAL

August 13th, 2010

British thrashers EVILE are currently doing the summer festival rounds in Europe ahead of a huge three-month North American trek.

EVILE has just a few shows left this month, including an appearance on the Ronnie James Dio main stage at the UK’s Bloodstock festival this weekend, before the massive tour that will see the band team up with the likes of OVERKILL, FORBIDDEN, DRI, BONDED BY BLOOD, GAMA BOMB and EARLY MAN.

EVILE lead guitarist OL DRAKE updates:

“We just got back from playing two festivals in Europe which both kicked arse.  Up first was Wacken.  We’d been waiting to play this for years, and we finally got there.  What a place!  We played to a packed tent of great metalheads (thank you again for watching our set).  It was a tough as hell set to play; every time a pit broke out, the dust and dirt would come onto the stage.  We all had black teeth, couldn’t breathe and all our gear is now brown.  Metal!  First shower I’ve had where the water going down the drain is pure black.  Thank you Wacken!

“Then we ventured to good old Belgium to play Alcatraz Metal Fest.  We headlined the second stage and had a blast.  The crew and crowd were great and friendly.  Other than Kreator having to lend us their airport shuttle from a big mix-up, everything was awesome!

“Up next we have what I’d call our ‘home festival’, Bloodstock Open Air.  Without Bloodstock I don’t think we’d be where we are today, so we’ll always have a special place for it.  Can’t wait to get there and pound some Bloodstock metal yet again!  See you all there!”
