donated items for the raffle to support the family of the band's late
bassist, MIKE ALEXANDER, who tragically passed away on October 5th while the
band was on tour in Sweden.
EVILE are set to host two memorial shows to honour MIKE ALEXANDER, which
will take place on December 7th at Rio's in Leeds and December 8th at the
Underworld in London. The shows will feature live performances from Irish
thrashers GAMA BOMB plus special guests MUTANT and SEREGON, as well as a
cover set from EVILE, with members of the other bands, playing some of
MIKE's favourite thrash songs. Tickets for the shows are only available
directly from the venue for £8 in advance, or for £10 on the door.
A massive raffle has been arranged, with rare and signed items from bands
and artists such as METALLICA, SLAYER, IRON MAIDEN, OZZY OSBOURNE, MEGADETH,
EXODUS, AMON AMARTH and many more up for grabs. Raffle tickets will be
available at the memorial shows for £5 each and can also be bought online
for £7.50 each.
To view the raffle items and to purchase tickets, head to
EVILE guitarist OL DRAKE comments:
"We're absolutely blown away by the amount of support we and Mike's family
have received direct from all these amazing people and artists. We hope we
can raise as much as possible to help Mike's family to cover many things
needed and to help his kids and girlfriend make up for the huge loss they
all have to deal with now.
"Please show your support by grabbing a raffle ticket, or coming down to the
memorial shows in December. We'll be playing a surprise (whoops) cover set
"Thank you all so much for the continuing support."
