UK thrashers, Evile, issue the following end of tour update:

"Hey all, just thought I'd post an update on the Exodus tour, even though there's only one more show to go :("

"This is one awesome tour and we're having a great time. All of the Exodus guys are great. They and their crew treat us really well. The Crowds have all been very welcoming to us, and the responses we've been getting on this tour are overwhelming. I want to thank everyone who's been coming out and taking the time to check Evile out!"

"It's been an eventful tour to say the least. One day/night (can't remember) I was asleep in my bunk on the bus, when all of a sudden there's a huge bang and we're hurled forward about 15 feet. We got hit while being parked by a Truck driver who probably had a bit more than he should have. Our driver, Bjorn, jumped out of bed, running down the road in his boxer shorts to steal the keys out of the guys ignition, while Lee Altus got his drink spilt. He wasn't happy. On a side note, as soon as the truck hit us, I just went back to sleep, I thought Mike had just fallen down the stairs, so this whole story is second hand from when i appeared in the morning and said 'What was that bang?.'"

"This was closely followed by a brief second driver of ours stalling the bus in the middle of the night. I heard cries of "We've been hit again!" and people running up and down. Again I just went back to sleep. I'm so fucking Metal."

"Another night on our day off in Germany, Exodus treated us to a barbeque. We ate, we drank, we watched Jack Gibson jam some country with a young Elvis Costello in the bar (Desperado), but the highlight of the night was probably Gary Holt wearing a Santa hat, with pigtails, playing along to 'Master of Puppets' on a fucking Banjo. I can't say i'd ever expected to see that."

"At the Sheffield date we let a fan of ours come and play 'Enter the Grave' with us at soundcheck. It was cool and he was loving it, so Mike thought we should let him play with us on the night. So it came to the last song and we let Jake come out and take Matt's guitar. Thank you to the crowd at the Corporation for being so supportive and welcoming to him."

"For the guitarists here, Gary Holt introduced me to a company called Home Brew Electronics (www.homebrewelectronics.com). They do an awesome pedal called the Powerscreamer and it kicks my balls for a lead tone. Definetly gonna be checking more of their stuff out. Cheers Gary and Joel!!"

"One more show left to do in Munich then back to the ole UK!"

"We're working on a UK Headline tour later in the year, and we're gonna try come back over to Europe as much as we can."
