British thrash metal group Evile has revealed some more details regarding the forthcoming memorial shows the band has announced in England. The band will be joined by Irish thrash metal band Gama Bomb as well as London based thrash metal group Mutant and Bristol based thrash outfit Seregon for the shows. The concerts are being held to remember the bands bass player Mike Alexander who tragically passed away while the band was on tour with Amon Amarth last month in Sweden. A huge raffle will be taking place at the shows which include signed items from big name metal bands and limited edition prizes. The shows will be held on December 7th, 2009 at Rio's in Leeds and December 8th, 2009 at the Underworld in London. Tickets are £8 in advance and can only be purchased at the venues or £10 on the door. All money made from the shows will be going towards the family of Mike Alexander. To view a list of the raffle prizes, you can head over to the Mike Alexander memorial website.
Evile lead guitarist Ol Drake comments: "These two nights are for all the friends and fans of Mike who haven't had a real chance to say goodbye, and also for us to hold something a lot more appropriate than any funeral could be. Mike wasn't religious, and his beliefs were solely based in music, so there is no better way to say goodbye. He lived for music and metal. We picked a few bands who Mike liked and we'll no doubt be playing a few covers on the night. We're holding a raffle with LOTS of items kindly donated by some amazing people and bands from around the world. Keep an eye on our sites for details of these - please come along and grab a raffle ticket - all money is going to the family."
Gama Bomb frontman Philly Byrne adds: "It's a real honour to play these shows for Mike. He was a star of a man and a brilliant friend, and it'll be great to do something for his family and friends. We're sure everyone will show their support for him at the shows."
