British thrashers EVILE recently announced a headlining UK tour, which kicks off in February 2011.
If you've ever dreamed of playing a show with such an awesome band, now is your chance! EVILE, in conjunction with Metal Hammer and MySpace, are offering you and your band the chance to support the nation's finest thrash heroes at one of their upcoming UK shows.
To be in with a chance of winning this incredible opportunity, simply submit your band's MySpace URL to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "Evile Live", followed by the city in which you'd like to support EVILE. All entries must be received by December 31st.
EVILE themselves will choose the best three bands for each city and the readers of Metal Hammer online will then vote to decide which band gets to support EVILE at each show.
EVILE frontman MATT DRAKE comments:
"Today we are about to experience Thanksgiving in America on one of our rare days off on tour and we are looking ahead to getting home and having a relaxing Christmas with the people we are closest to, but we don't want to forget about the other people who are important to us, our UK fans, so we have decided to try a different way of finding some support bands for our upcoming UK mini tour.
"Bands can send us their MySpace links and we will be going through them all to choose the bands we like that will open the shows in February. Knowing our luck this will somehow backfire in a hideous way but it will be fun to try! We are looking forward to listening to all the bands and getting some good UK metal on the shows with us.
"Happy Thanksgiving from America and we will see you in February!"
