British thrashers EVILE have confirmed a special Kerrang!-sponsored hometown show to celebrate the release of their highly-anticipated new album, FIVE SERPENT'S TEETH.

The band will be returning to their hometown to treat their loyal local fans to a night of pure, homegrown British metal.  The special release show is due to take place at the Holmfirth Picturedrome on October 2nd.  Supporting EVILE will be fellow British metallers TORANAGA and GRIEVE.

EVILE lead guitarist OL DRAKE comments:

"It's been a long time since we played so close to home.  One venue we've always wanted to play near to home is the Picturedrome in Holmfirth.  We've teamed up with Kerrang! magazine to have a very special album release show at that very venue.  We can't wait to play the new material so close to home after such a long time, and we're honoured to have the great Kerrang! sponsoring this special event.  See you all there!"

EVILE frontman MATT DRAKE adds:

"At long last we can announce that we are playing a local show!  We haven't played locally in nearly 3 years, so it's about time we did so.  We are heading into the green hills of Holmfirth to play at a place called the Picturedrome, which is the place to go to see older rock bands, so for one night we're turning it into a building full of METAL.  Hopefully everyone who used to watch us locally back in the day can turn out to see us, along with all the new blood, and make it a night to remember!"

Tickets for the special show cost just £6 and are available now at
