that the music has to be loud. The band were therefore slightly worried to
hear something which could affect fans of live music all across the UK.
EVILE lead guitarist OL DRAKE explains: "I was browsing the Downing Street
website to see what exactly our Prime Minister is doing, and I came across
the 'Petitions' section. One that stood out to me was a petition for 'No
Noise Control'. Now, I remember playing a show in a venue where they were
strict on the level of noise, as they had one of these Noise Control
devices. It was so quiet, it felt like a crime headbanging whilst playing
the music. I'd hate to go and see my favourite band live and have the music
being at that level.
"I urge all UK live music fans to sign this petition to make it be known
that we love live music, and for it to be that ridiculously quiet would be a
travesty. The kind of music we play is aggressive. You can't have
aggressive music at low volumes. It defeats the purpose. I want to have my
head blasted off by a riff, not my genitals slightly tickled. Please take a
look, sign and pass on!"
