British thrashers EVILE have completed a UK headlining tour - the band's first shows on their home soil since spending months on the road in North America in 2010.
EVILE played five shows around the UK with support from fellow British thrashers ELIMINATION and MUTANT. The band are next scheduled to perform in the UK at Hammerfest in Prestatyn on March 19th.
EVILE lead guitarist OL DRAKE looks back on the UK shows:
"Just got back from our short headline tour of the UK. We had a great time and it was a very successful run. Thank you to every single person who came out and supported Evile and all the other bands! I've never seen so many people running/flying towards me whilst I'm playing. It's very, very difficult to play our songs whilst watching for bodies flying towards you."
EVILE are this month's "Artist of the Month" on Rock Band Network. Lead guitarist OL DRAKE is also the latest artist to be spotlighted in the Xbox LIVE "Game with Fame" program. The guitarist will be on Rock Band 3 on Xbox LIVE tonight (Thursday, 17th February), challenging fans from all over the world to join him in playing the latest tracks from the likes of EVILE, OCEANO, CAULDRON and more.
"I'm about to take part in Xbox LIVE's "Game with Fame" on Rock Band 3 thanks to the wonderful people at Harmonix and Microsoft. It will be between 5pm and 8pm EST [10pm to 1am GMT] today. I warn you, I'm not very good. None of this "Expert" business for me, I just thought it would be cool to play and chat to some Evile fans who play Rock Band 3!"
For your chance to play your favourite tracks from Rock Band 3 and the Rock Band Network with OL, sign in to Xbox LIVE tonight from 5pm to 8pm EST (10pm to 1am UK time). OL will be playing with the Gamertag EvileOlDrake. Simply send him an invite to play and get shredding!
