British thrashers EVILE are currently on their first full headlining UK tour
with support from TRIGGER THE BLOODSHED and MUTANT.

EVILE frontman MATT DRAKE reports from the road:

"Hello all, Matt here with a quick update from halfway through our UK
headlining tour. So far no major accidents, we've made it to all the gigs
and it's going pretty smoooooth. Mutant and Trigger the Bloodshed are
excellent guys to be sharing a tour bus with, good company and it's a
pleasure having them along to blow peoples faces off. The shows have been
way beyond my expectations so far, I honestly never expected the amount of
people that have been showing up so thank you to everyone for coming along
and showing your support for Evile.

"We've been enjoying playing the new tracks live as well, the first of the
two we've been playing, 'Demolition', is feeling more and more comfortable
each time we play it, and it's been going down pretty well. It's not in the
finished form it will be on the album and we haven't exactly perfected
playing it yet but you get the idea of where it's going! Out of the new
songs we've got for the next album we chose to play 'Demolition' because we
figured it would be a good introduction to what to expect from our next
recording, but in saying that each song is pretty unique so people still
really aren't going to be able to guess what the next album will be like by
hearing just that new song.

"Back to the tour and we have the last half to go, we're looking forward to
the Camden Underworld gig, last time we played there with Exodus it was
mental so we're hoping to have that kind of reaction again, with it being
our first proper headline tour it's pretty daunting headlining the
Underworld but it's also bloody cool so we can't wait for it. Again thanks
to everyone for showing up and thanks in advance to those people planning to
show up.

"Also looking forward to getting to Hammerfest in Wales, playing on the same
bill as the mighty Opeth and Sepultura at the mighty venue of PONTINS, and
having our first day off on the Saturday so we can wander around and check
out some bands that we haven't had chance to see yet, luckily we don't clash
with Opeth so people can come watch us and then leg it as fast as humanly
possible with us among the mob to bask in the glory that is Opeth."
