British thrashers EVILE are among the latest artists to be confirmed for this year's edition of the legendary Download festival, which takes place 10 - 12 June at Donington Park in the UK.
Following a hugely successful year in 2010, when EVILE won a coveted Metal Hammer Golden God award and spent months on the road in North America with the likes of OVERKILL, FORBIDDEN and KREATOR, the band are now heading to the UK's home of rock for what will undoubtedly be an unforgettable performance. EVILE will be performing alongside the likes of such rock giants as DEF LEPPARD and SYSTEM OF A DOWN.
EVILE drummer BEN CARTER comments:
"Evile are both honoured and excited to be making our first appearance at Download this year! Donington has been the spiritual home of rock and metal for so many years, now finally we can make our mark there and become part of that legacy. I've attended Download in the past, and seen many bands perform on the smaller stages and go on to huge success, and I think that's what Download can do for a band. There's something about the place that's special, so we're all so eager to get on stage and have our Download moment! BRING IT ON!!!!!"
