Matt Drake, frontman of young British thrash metal group Evile, has checked in from the bands tour with Trigger The Bloodshed and Mutant. Drake states: "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."
