raffle, which was set up to raise money for the family of the band's late
bassist, Mike Alexander.
EVILE hosted two memorial shows in the UK last week to honour Mike
Alexander. The show included performances from MUTANT and GAMA BOMB, as
well a special cover set from EVILE with members of the other bands helping
out. A raffle was held at each show, with many incredible prizes up for
grabs which were kindly donated by bands and artists such as METALLICA,
SLAYER, IRON MAIDEN, MEGADETH, MACHINE HEAD, OZZY OSBOURNE and more.
To check if you were a lucky winner, or to see what goodies you could have
won, watch the video of EVILE drawing the winners at
EVILE lead guitarist Ol Drake comments:
"Thank you to everyone who bought a raffle ticket. You've no idea how much
you have helped Mike's family at this moment in time. They are overwhelmed
with the support. Thank you to all who came to the memorial shows, and
everyone who helped out. We have four guitars up for auction on Ebay, from
bands such as Exodus, Machine Head and Trivium."
EVILE are auctioning guitars which were kindly donated by Jackson guitars,
Phil Demmel of MACHINE HEAD, Gary Holt of EXODUS and Paolo Gregoletto of
TRIVIUM. View the items and place your bid at
