Earache Records has announced the signing of fast-rising young UK thrashers EVILE. The band just completed their triumphant performance at last weekend's Damnation Festival, where they slayed the crowd on the Jagermeister stage, as openers for The Haunted, Skindred & Biomechanical.

EVILE formed 2 years ago in Huddersfield, Yorkshire, UK by brothers Matt Drake (vocals/guitar) and Ol Drake (lead guitar), along with Ben Carter (drums) and Mike Alexander (bass) and have since rapidly picked up a rabid following, eager to enjoy a night of heads-down, no-nonsense Thrash.

Though unsigned, EVILE were hand-picked to play 2 prestigious UK festivals in the summer of 2006 -Bloodstock Open Air and most recently, Damnation Festival-both to great acclaim from fans. Now the band will spend the rest of the year gigging far and wide, and expect to record and release their debut album on Earache early in 2007.

Meanwhile, check out EVILE's demo and pics at their myspace page.
