Evile To Enter The Studio

British thrashers Evile are set to enter the studio this weekend to begin recording their third album. Evile will be playing a show in London this Friday, 18th March with Chthonic, before heading to Prestatyn, Wales on Saturday for a performance at Hammerfest. The band will then be heading into Parlour Studios on Sunday to begin recording the follow-up to 2009's "Infected Nations," and will once again be working with producer Russ Russell.

Evile lead guitarist Ol Drake comments:

"This has been one hell of a 2011 already. We've been working non-stop on the material for Evile's third album since early last year, and the past few months saw the workload pile up drastically. We're on top of it though.

"Tomorrow we play London with our friends Chthonic from Taiwan, then we head over to Prestatyn for Hammerfest. Just like with Infected Nations, we're again heading to the studio shortly after playing Hammerfest, though this time it's the very day after. To the great Parlour Studios we will venture along with the even greater Russ Russell. He was at the helm/desk/brain for 'Infected Nations', and we see him as a member of the band, even more so on this third offering. We'll be in there for approximately a month, and we'll be focusing on roughly ten tracks to delight your ears.

"If I was to say what the direction of this third album would be, I'd have to say a mix of the approach to 'Enter the Grave', the ideas on 'Infected Nations' and an amalgamation of brand new ideas we can't wait to try out. We have to try out new things as artists; we don't ever ever want to stick to doing the same thing all the time. It will be aggressive yet mature, in my opinion, and before your ask - yes, fast."

Catch Evile live at the following shows:

March 18 - London, UK - The Underworld
March 19 - Prestatyn, UK - Hammerfest
June 10-12 - Donington, UK - Download Festival
July 17 - Vizovice, Czech Republic - Masters of Rock
July 23-24 - London, UK - High Voltage Festival

Evile Comments On High Voltage Festival

British thrashers Evile have been confirmed to play at this year's High Voltage festival, which takes place on July 23rd and 24th at Victoria Park in London, UK. Evile was also among the latest bands to be recently announced for the UK's Download festival, as well as Masters of Rock in the Czech Republic.

Evile bassist Joel Graham comments: "It's awesome to be added to the High Voltage festival - for the name Evile to be on the same poster that contains the such legendary names of Judas Priest, Jethro Tull, Dream Theater and Queensryche is an absolute mind f**k... It's amazing. More than a couple of us in Evile are prog fans so I'm sure we'll be hanging around the Prog Stage a lot.

"For me personally, I became a huge Jethro Tull fan after doing a deal with my father; he agreed to take me to see Anthrax when I was about 11, if in return he could take me to see Tull around the same time, so he got me hooked. Ol (Drake) also has a very uncanny likeness to a young Ian Anderson, so I'm hoping they bump into each other over the weekend."

Evile To Play Download Festival

British thrashers Evile are among the latest artists to be confirmed for this year's edition of the Download festival, which takes place 10-12 June at Donington Park. Evile will be performing alongside the likes of such acts as Def Leppard and System of a Down.

Evile drummer Ben Carter comments: "Evile are both honoured and excited to be making our first appearance at Download this year! Donington has been the spiritual home of rock and metal for so many years, now finally we can make our mark there and become part of that legacy. I've attended Download in the past, and seen many bands perform on the smaller stages and go on to huge success, and I think that's what Download can do for a band. There's something about the place that's special, so we're all so eager to get on stage and have our Download moment! BRING IT ON!"

Evile Guitarist To Play Rock Band With Fans

British thrashers Evile have completed a U.K. headlining tour, which was the first run of shows on their home soil since spending months on the road in North America in 2010. 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 is also 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 Drake 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 favorite tracks from Rock Band 3 and the Rock Band Network with Ol Drake, sign in to Xbox Live tonight from 5pm to 8pm EST (10pm to 1am UK time). He will be playing with the Gamertag EvileOlDrake. For more information, head to this location.
