EVILE have selected the winners of their support act competition, who will open for EVILE at the band's hometown show in Holmfirth at the end of their UK tour, which kicks off tomorrow, Thursday, October 18th.
After personally listening to all entrants, EVILE have chosen UK metallers SHRAPNEL as the winning band, who will be joining EVILE and SAVAGE MESSIAH at the Picturedrome on November 3rd.
EVILE drummer BEN CARTER comments:
"After careful consideration (and much banging of heads) we are pleased to announce the mighty SHRAPNEL as our opening band for the Holmfirth Picturedrome show! Shrapnel stood out as being amazing musicians, great guys and are sure to whip up a frenzy ready for Savage Messiah and ourselves, so we can't wait to get to our hometown end-of-tour gig!! We'd also like to extend a HUGE thanks to every band that entered; we had some fantastic responses from some amazingly talented bands, but unfortunately (just like in Highlander) there can be only one! To the bands that weren't chosen this time, I'm sure our paths will cross sooner rather than later!! Cheers, and see you in the pit!!!"
SHRAPNEL guitarist CHRIS MARTIN adds:
"A massive thank you to the guys for giving us the opportunity. It's an exciting show to be a part of and with our album recording wrapping up on Halloween we will have lots to celebrate!"
