EVILE have released an official lyric video for a brand new track, ahead of the release of the band's new album, SKULL.
The new song, titled "Underworld", is the first official track from SKULL, which is due to be released in Europe on May 27th via Earache Records, and in the USA on June 11th via Century Media/Earache Records.
EVILE frontman MATT DRAKE comments:
"We are proud to release the first full track from our upcoming album 'Skull' for you to wrap your ears around. Hopefully this gives you a good idea of what's in store for you all come May 27th.
"Underworld is a title I've wanted to use for a very long time but hadn't found the right song for it; it's named after the venue in London of the same name as it's been one of my favourite places to play for years now. The song itself isn't directly about the venue but it's definitely dedicated to it. The song is inspired by a short sci-fi story I read about the earth's surface becoming uninhabitable and people being forced to live deep underground. It ties in to one of the overall themes of the album which is about things being hidden, be it thoughts, feelings, motivations or truths. At the same time it's about something else but I don't want to give everything away all at once; it's better if you make up your own mind!
"Hope you enjoy what you hear and we will see you in a few days time with the mighty Kreator where we will be playing new songs for the first time. See you there!!"
