Rhythm guitarist and lead vocalist Matt Drake of British thrashers EVILE was interviewed by Peter Bailey of the Wrexham, Wales, United Kingdom-based "Metalheadz" radio show on January 15, 2010 during the band's U.K. headlining tour. You can now watch the chat in two parts below.
EVILE kicked off its headlining European tour earlier this month. The "Infecting Nations" trek started with a run of shows on the band's home soil of the U.K., before they headed off to mainland Europe. Joining EVILE on the tour are American thrashers WARBRINGER and Israel's THE FADING.
EVILE recently announced the addition of bassist Joel Graham to the group's ranks.
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.
EVILE's sophomore album, "Infected Nations", was released on September 21 in Europe and September 22 in the U.S. via Earache Records.
