"Evile are coming back next year, we've been hard at work over the past few months with Piers, our new guitarist, to get up to speed with putting a great set together for our first show back at one of our favourite venues (so much of a favourite, I named a song after it!), the Underworld in London, on March 28, 2015.
We've still got a lot of work to do in the coming months to make sure we can be better than we've ever been but we're treating this as a new start. I always hoped (idealistically) that Evile could be a band that kept the same members for as long as we lasted, but obviously there are some things you just can't fight or plan and life just isn't that straightforward.
We want to make sure we put the time in to be stronger than ever, but we can only all manage to be available at the same for one or two rehearsals per week, which is why we haven't rushed straight back out there. We need to put in the effort in to be as good a live band as we want to be, that's what we're aiming for starting next year. This time, we're going the DIY route, we have no label or manager. Just ourselves and whatever stage people will let us play on.
We finally get the chance to tour in support of our last album Skull, which we released through Earache in May 2013. Sadly, we never got the chance to promote it properly, so it seemed to fly under the radar for a lot of people, so we plan on playing that album in full at shows next year as we're really proud of what we put together on that one and think it deserves its time in the spotlight.
Check out the rest of the dates we have booked in for next year as we will see the London faithful at the Underworld on March 28 for the resurrection of Evile."

After announcing new lead guitarist Piers Donno-Fuller in August, Evile have announced that they will be returning to the road in early 2015. The band have announced a few shows already, including the rescheduled U.K headline tour that has been rescheduled for the second time since 2013. Evile released their latest album Skull in May 2013 through Earache Records, but did not have the chance to properly promote it, so as a result, the band will be playing the album in full at all the upcoming shows. Frontman Matt Drake has posted a statement regarding the shows below:
