Earache Records signs Evile

Earache Records has officially announced the signing of UK thrashers Evile, fresh from their appearance at last weekend's Damnation Festival, where they performed on the Jagermeister stage as openers for The Haunted, Skindred and Biomechanical. Evile formed two years ago in Huddersfield, Yorkshire, UK by brothers Matt Drake (vocals/guitar) and Ol Drake (lead guitar), along with Ben Carter (drums) and Mike Alexander (bass). Though unsigned, Evile were hand-picked to play two prestigious UK festivals in the summer of 2006 - Bloodstock Open Air and most recently, Damnation Festival. Now the band will spend the rest of the year gigging far and wide, and expect to record and release their debut album on Earache early in 2007. In the meantime, you can check out Evile's demo here.
