In other news, EVILE has confirmed a special Kerrang!-sponsored hometown show to celebrate the release of “Five Serpent’s Teeth”. The special release show is due to take place at the Holmfirth Picturedrome on October 2. Supporting at the gig will come from fellow British metallers TORANAGA and GRIEVE.
Commented Ol Drake: “It’s been a long time since we played so close to home. One venue we’ve always wanted to play near to home is the Picturedrome in Holmfirth. We’ve teamed up with Kerrang! magazine to have a very special album release show at that very venue. We can’t wait to play the new material so close to home after such a long time, and we’re honored to have the great Kerrang! sponsoring this special event. See you all there!”
Added EVILE frontman Matt Drake: “At long last we can announce that we are playing a local show! We haven’t played locally in nearly three years, so it’s about time we did so. We are heading into the green hills of Holmfirth to play at a place called the Picturedrome, which is the place to go to see older rock bands, so for one night we’re turning it into a building full of METAL. Hopefully everyone who used to watch us locally back in the day can turn out to see us, along with all the new blood, and make it a night to remember!”
“Five Serpent’s Teeth” is scheduled for release on September 26 in Europe and October 18 in North America via Earache Records.
