EVILE COMPLETE UK TOUR; GUITARIST TO PLAY FANS ON ROCK BAND 3 TONIGHT

Tour flyer - EVILE live in the UK

British thrashers EVILE have completed a UK headlining tour – the band’s first shows on their home soil since spending months on the road in North America in 2010.

EVILE played five shows around the UK with support from fellow British thrashers ELIMINATION and MUTANT.  The band are next scheduled to perform in the UK at Hammerfest in Prestatyn on March 19th.

EVILE lead guitarist OL DRAKE looks back on the UK shows:

“Just got back from our short headline tour of the UK.  We had a great time and it was a very successful run.  Thank you to every single person who came out and supported Evile and all the other bands!  I’ve never seen so many people running/flying towards me whilst I’m playing.  It’s very, very difficult to play our songs whilst watching for bodies flying towards you.”

EVILE are this month’s “Artist of the Month” on Rock Band Network.  Lead guitarist OL DRAKE is also the latest artist to be spotlighted in the Xbox LIVE “Game with Fame” program.  The guitarist will be on Rock Band 3 on Xbox LIVE tonight (Thursday, 17th February), challenging fans from all over the world to join him in playing the latest tracks from the likes of EVILE, OCEANO, CAULDRON and more.

OL comments:

“I’m about to take part in Xbox LIVE’s “Game with Fame” on Rock Band 3 thanks to the wonderful people at Harmonix and Microsoft.  It will be between 5pm and 8pm EST [10pm to 1am GMT] today.  I warn you, I’m not very good.  None of this “Expert” business for me, I just thought it would be cool to play and chat to some Evile fans who play Rock Band 3!”

For your chance to play your favourite tracks from Rock Band 3 and the Rock Band Network with OL, sign in to Xbox LIVE tonight from 5pm to 8pm EST (10pm to 1am UK time).  OL will be playing with the Gamertag EvileOlDrake.  Simply send him an invite to play and get shredding!

EVILE UK HEADLINING TOUR STARTS TODAY

February 9th, 2011

Following months of touring in North America to round off 2010, British thrashers EVILE are back on the road in their homeland as they kick off a five-date headlining UK tour.

EVILE will be tearing their way around the UK with support from fellow Brit thrashers ELIMINATION and MUTANT.  Each show of the tour will also feature a winning band from EVILE’s recent support slot competition in conjunction with Metal Hammer.

EVILE lead guitarist OL DRAKE comments:

“I’m just about to step out of the door to embark on our last set of dates before going into the studio to record Evile’s third album.  Quickly reading through the Evile feature in today’s Kerrang! has put me quite in the mood for getting back out there, even if it is for five dates in the UK.  Really excited to see all those smiling faces going mental, and hopefully we’ll have a raw version of a new track to play for you all.

“50 years ago today, The Beatles played the Cavern in Liverpool.  50 years after, Evile play the Academy in Manchester.  It will be remembered.  Just… not like The Beatles Cavern thing.  Probably from me falling over, or forgetting a solo or something.”

Don’t miss EVILE live at the following shows:

EVILE w/ ELIMINATION, MUTANT
09 Feb. – Manchester, UK – Academy 3 (w/ BLUDVERA)
10 Feb. – Newcastle, UK – Academy (w/ VORTEX)

WIN THE CHANCE TO SUPPORT EVILE ON THEIR UK TOUR

November 29th, 2010
Evile 2010

Evile 2010

British thrashers EVILE recently announced a headlining UK tour, which kicks off in February 2011.

If you’ve ever dreamed of playing a show with such an awesome band, now is your chance!  EVILE, in conjunction with Metal Hammer and MySpace, are offering you and your band the chance to support the nation’s finest thrash heroes at one of their upcoming UK shows.

To be in with a chance of winning this incredible opportunity, simply submit your band’s MySpace URL to digital@visiblenoise.com with the subject line “Evile Live”, followed by the city in which you’d like to support EVILE.  All entries must be received by December 31st.

EVILE themselves will choose the best three bands for each city and the readers of Metal Hammer online will then vote to decide which band gets to support EVILE at each show.

EVILE frontman MATT DRAKE comments:

“Today we are about to experience Thanksgiving in America on one of our rare days off on tour and we are looking ahead to getting home and having a relaxing Christmas with the people we are closest to, but we don’t want to forget about the other people who are important to us, our UK fans, so we have decided to try a different way of finding some support bands for our upcoming UK mini tour.

“Bands can send us their MySpace links and we will be going through them all to choose the bands we like that will open the shows in February.  Knowing our luck this will somehow backfire in a hideous way but it will be fun to try!  We are looking forward to listening to all the bands and getting some good UK metal on the shows with us.

“Happy Thanksgiving from America and we will see you in February!”

The full dates for EVILE’s UK tour are as follows:

EVILE: ‘INFECTED NATIONS’ REDUX OUT NOW IN EUROPE

October 11th, 2010

INFECTED NATIONS, the ripping 2009 album from British thrashers EVILE, has been re-released as a special redux version and is available now in Europe.

The follow-up to EVILE’s debut album, ENTER THE GRAVE, INFECTED NATIONS sees the band finding a new level of maturity and song-writing craftsmanship, creating a heavier thrash sound with even more infectious riffs to headbang to.

On top of the nine album tracks, the INFECTED NATIONS Redux also features a bonus disc with EVILE’s popular cover of PANTERA’s “Cemetery Gates”, as well as eight songs recorded at a live rehearsal in the studio and six songs recorded live at Hammerfest in 2009.  The album also includes a free INFECTED NATIONS album cover woven patch and an EVILE sticker sheet, as well as the chance to win frontman MATT DRAKE’s very own guitar.

EVILE LEAD GUITARIST TO BUNGEE JUMP THIS SATURDAY AT 10:30AM NEXT TO LONDON’S TOWER BRIDGE

September 22nd, 2010

OL DRAKE, lead guitarist for British thrashers EVILE, is preparing to bungee jump next to London’s famous Tower Bridge this Saturday, 25th September along with Metal Hammer editor ALEXANDER MILAS.

OL DRAKE and ALEXANDER MILAS will be jumping from Pottersfield Park, next to Tower Bridge, at 10:30am on Saturday whilst dressed as cowboys.  Fans are encouraged to head down and watch the brave metalheads throwing themselves off the 160ft crane.

OL DRAKE will be jumping in memory of late EVILE bassist MIKE ALEXANDER and in aid of the British Lung Foundation, while ALEXANDER MILAS will be jumping in aid of the Ronnie James Dio ‘Stand Up and Shout’ Cancer Fund.

With just days left until the jump, OL DRAKE offers his final thoughts:

“I think I am more nervous of having to walk through London to get to the jump while dressed as a cowboy.  If anyone gives me any abuse, I will spray them with the two water pistols I have.  I will no doubt be shouting ‘SLAYER’ on the way down in honour of Mike.  Looking forward to it!  Hope to see some people at the bottom shouting things at us.  In the name of Mike and Dio, we shall jump off a big crane (never thought I’d be saying that, in so many ways).

“Right after I’m back down to earth safely I’m gonna have a pint of cider and then get back up to Huddersfield to leave on our 3-month US tour.  Back down to earth, and back on the road.”

Metal Hammer editor ALEXANDER MILAS adds:

“I watch the clock nervously as the moment of truth approaches and my mind is awash with self-doubt.  Will the cord be strong enough?  And more importantly: will I look sexy in a cape?

“Deep, resounding thanks to all who’ve generously contributed to this victory of foolhardiness over common sense – it’s for a very good cause.  In the name of Mike Alexander, Ronnie James Dio and heavy metal, we’ll be making gravity our bitch.  Onward!”

EVILE FRONTMAN COMMENTS ON UPCOMING NORTH AMERICAN TOUR

September 18th, 2010

British thrashers EVILE, who recently won a coveted Metal Hammer Golden Gods award, are currently preparing for a huge North American tour, which kicks off at the end of September and runs through until just before Christmas.

For EVILE, this will be their second mammoth North American trek in 2010, after the band spent two months on the road in the USA and Canada earlier this year.

EVILE vocalist and guitarist MATT DRAKE comments:

“For the second time this year, Evile are proud to be able to say we’re coming across the pond to play some more shows throughout America and Canada.  Last time we were there for two months, this time we’re staying for three, playing at loads of places we never went to last time, but also revisiting many places we played at with the mighty Overkill and Kreator earlier in the year.  We just can’t get enough of it!

“This time we’re joining up with Overkill, Forbidden, Early Man, Gama Bomb and Bonded By Blood for many different tours, also some headline shows of our own, so if you saw us play last time, make sure you come and see us again and bring everyone you know for some metal madness!”
