UK thrashers EVILE, who recently announced their first full headlining UK
tour, are currently hard at work on the follow-up to their critically
acclaimed 2007 debut album, ENTER THE GRAVE.

EVILE lead guitarist OL DRAKE checks in with some details on the band's
highly anticipated second offering:

"We're very glad to announce we'll be working with the brilliant Russ
Russell on the next release at Parlour Studios, UK. Russ has produced
excellent work with bands such as Napalm Death, Dimmu Borgir, The Exploited
and many more. We've known Russ for a few years now. We first met him in
London at one of our shows where he expressed how much he'd like to work
with us sometime, and that time has come. I believe Russ can bring us a
very interesting sound and approach to the new material which we're writing.
Expect a very crushing and interesting album! The cover art will also be
very crushing and interesting! Definitely one for vinyl!

"We've been working non-stop on the new Evile material since before the
Megadeth tour last February. We're even into the demo process of the new
album. Just last weekend we recorded the first 3 demo tracks we completed
first. Looking back on what we've been writing, it's surprising how diverse
and different the material has got since starting on the first "album 2"
song. Don't worry, it's thrash, we're just trying to use our brains more
than our 'ripped jeans'."

EVILE's as-yet untitled second album is due to be released in late 2009
through Earache Records.

With regards to the tour, OL DRAKE comments:

"Even though this is probably expected of us, I thought it only right for us
to confirm we'll be playing new material on our upcoming April UK/Ireland
tour, as we've been playing the same old songs for the past 8 million years!
See you all on the road soon!"
