UK thrashers, EVILE will embark on their first ever trip to the
western hemisphere as they tour Canada this October with the country's
number 1 falsetto-singing, fist pumping metal warriors, 3 INCHES OF

This tour is a big moment in the history of EVILE as it marks the
first time the band will play shows in the great white north and the
first time the band has ever toured outside of their half of the
world. EVILE is extremely excited to see all of their crazy Canadian
fans for the first time and is just as excited to play with longtime
favorites of theirs, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD!

EVILE guitarist, Ol Drake gave a few words on how he and his band
first discovered the music of tourmates-to-be 3 INCHES OF BLOOD: "I
remember hearing 3 INCHES OF BLOOD when we started EVILE back in 03/04
(in the rehearsal room whilst writing) and was surprised to hear
someone doing that style of metal at that time. It was a relief to
hear, even though I was heavilly into just Death and Thrash metal only

From local UK act to international thrash sensations, EVILE have a
lot to be proud of and can't wait to show Canada what they're all
about this October with 3 INCHES OF BLOOD. "I can't wait to drown in 3
INCHES OF BLOOD!" says Drake, who jests "...Too cheesy? Fuck you!"
