Video: EVILE Celebrates 'Record Store Day' With In-Store Performance

British thrashers EVILE celebrated this year's Record Store Day by releasing a split seven-inch picture disc vinyl with Swedish death metal legends ENTOMBED.

The limited-edition release features ENTOMBED's classic 1990 track, "Drowned", along with EVILE's 2012 cover version, available on vinyl for the first time. The seven-inch is available in independent record stores starting on Saturday, April 20 in strictly limited quantities.

EVILE performed a special show for fans earlier today (Saturday, April 20) at Crash Records in Leeds, U.K. Fans who bought the seven-inch vinyl from Crash Records on the day got free entry to the show (space permitting).

Video footage of the performance can be seen below.

Founded in 2007 and officially kicked off in 2008 by METALLICA, Record Store Day takes place on the third Saturday of every April and brings together artists and independently owned record stores around the world to celebrate the art of music. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day and sold in independent stores.

EVILE's fourth abum, "Skull", will be released on May 27 in Europe on Earache Records and in North America via Century Media/Earache Records. The follow-up to 2011's "Five Serpent's Teeth" was once again recorded with producer Russ Russell (NAPALM DEATH, DIMMU BORGIR) at Parlour Studios in Kettering, England. The artwork for the album was painted by artist Eliran Kantor (TESTAMENT, SODOM, HATEBREED).
