EVILE: First Photo Of New Lineup Released

The first photo of the new EVILE lineup, featuring the band's new bassist Joel Graham, can be viewed below.

Graham joined EVILE following the tragic death of their previous bassist, Mike Alexander, who passed away on October 5, 2009 while the group was on tour in Sweden.

Joel previously played in the Yorkshire metal band RISE TO ADDICTION, which recorded for Mausoleum Records.

Commented Graham: "I'd just like to say how much I'm looking forward to the upcoming tour with the band, and can't wait to meet all the EVILE fans personally.

"Since the announcement was made about me joining EVILE, the words of support have been overwhelming in what is ultimately a very difficult position in the band to fill. All I will say is, I will do my best every night of the tour and contribute what I can to keep this band stronger than ever.

"See you on tour, and thank you."

EVILE is set to kick off a headlining European tour next week. The "Infecting Nations" trek will start with a run of shows on the band's home soil of the U.K., before they head off to mainland Europe. Joining EVILE on the tour will be American thrashers WARBRINGER and Israel's THE FADING.
