British thrashers EVILE have revealed the identity of their new bassist, who
joins the band following the tragic and untimely death of their late
bassist, Mike Alexander.

Mike Alexander passed away on October 5th, 2009 while the band was on tour
in Sweden.

EVILE members Matt Drake, Ol Drake and Ben Carter have released the
following statement:

"This has been one of the most bizarre and surreal tasks we've ever had to
undertake. It isn't like Mike has decided to leave the band and we're
simply finding a new bass player, he was taken from us, and we were forced
to replace him. In effect we had to look for a new Mike, but that would
never happen. He was one of a kind, and we'll never forget him.

"We had hundreds upon hundreds of emails from bass players from around the
world (though we can only realistically have a bassist from the UK), and we
want to thank everyone for taking the time out to contact us, and the people
who came to jam with us. We only had a certain amount of time to actually
audition/jam with bass players before the upcoming tours, to get time in for
rehearsing the songs, getting visas sorted etc.

"Our new bass player goes by the name Joel Graham. He's an excellent,
experienced bass player, and a really nice guy. We'd all appreciate it if
you gave him a warm welcome to the band, as this must be a bizarre situation
for him to be in also. We'll be getting some photos taken with him soon so
you can see us with Joel, we just wanted to get the news out there that we
have a new bassist, and that we thank each and every person for auditioning.
Mike would be honoured at the amount of respect and admiration you expressed
to us through contacting us."
