British thrashers EVILE are gearing up for what will be the band's first ever performance at the UK's legendary Download Festival this weekend.
EVILE are due to take Donington Park by storm at 6:05pm this Saturday, 11th June on the Pepsi Max Stage, offering a raging set of old favourites, as well as some brand new tracks from the band's forthcoming album, FIVE SERPENT'S TEETH.
EVILE lead guitarist OL DRAKE comments from the festival:
"Just arrived at Download for the first time and the atmosphere is amazing. Everyone is so friendly. Cannot wait to get on that Pepsi Max stage at 6 on Saturday. We've got a great set lined up with a few new tracks. I'm not nervous at all, just eager to get up there and make people thrash around! See you all there! Check out 'Eternal Empire' so you can come along, clap your hands and sing along!"
EVILE will also be appearing at the Kerrang signing tent on Saturday at 12:00pm noon to greet their fans, and there will also be an exclusive playback of the band's entire new album at the Earache Records stall (near the Second Stage) from 3:00pm to 4:00pm.
