British thrashers EVILE have been hard at work on their as-yet-untitled new
album, due to be released later in 2009 by Earache Records.

The band have just spent a couple of days working on pre-production for
their second album, and have posted a series of photos from the sessions.
Check out the photos at

EVILE front-man MATT DRAKE comments on the band's progress so far:

"We've just finished up two long days of pre-production on our upcoming
album with Russ Russell in a dark basement in our home town where we've done
a lot of writing, re-writing, tweaking, re-tweaking, arguing and un-tweaking
and we've come away extremely happy with this bunch of new songs we've been
kicking around since last year.

"It always bugs me when bands talk up their upcoming album by saying the
same things everyone else does like it's heavier and more broooootal and so
on, so all I want to say is we're excited about what we're working on and it
feels like a natural progression from our first effort, you'll all be able
to make up your own minds on all that though when it's released later this
year. Until then we'll keep everyone updated on developments from the
studio in May, show you the artwork and all that jif, do a little dance for
you, and we're planning to road test some of the new material on our UK tour
which starts April 15th in Birmingham, so if you're heading down to any of
the shows we'll see you there!! Cheers!"
