Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on 11th January 2013 by Nico Davidson

Evile have confirmed a short string of shows in the UK and Ireland with German thrash metal legends Kreator.

The bands will be teaming up for three shows this April in Dublin, Manchester and London.  The shows take place shortly after Evile are scheduled to finish recording their new album, the follow-up to 2011’s Five Serpent’s Teeth. Evile bassist Joel Graham comments “We are really looking forward to playing a few shows with the mighty Kreator this April; we really enjoyed touring the US with them for two months back in 2010.  We’ll be fresh out of the studio too around this time, so who knows, it’s possible these shows could see us playing some new stuff for the first time…

See Evile live with Kreator at the following shows:
Apr. 26 – Dublin, Ireland – The Academy
Apr. 27 – Manchester, UK – HMV Ritz
Apr. 28 – London, UK – HMV Forum

Evile‘s latest album, Five Serpent’s Teeth, is available now on CD and limited edition coloured vinyl, and is also available from the Earache Webstore in a range of exclusive “Serpent Cult” fan packs.

Kreator announce UK tour dates

Posted in News with tags , , , , , on 4th January 2013 by Nico Davidson

Kreator2012cAround for almost 30 years now, Germanys biggest thrash metal export, Kreator, have proven to be a persistent, innovative and unstoppable force. And they have stepped it up another level for their return to the UK and Ireland.

Three years have passed since Kreator  headlined in the UK, so we are extremely stoked to announce the thrash-titans return in April 2013, bringing their Phantom Antichrist tour to the UK and Ireland.

Mille Petrozza (Vocalist/Guitarist) comments; “Finally we are coming back to play 3 selected shows for our loyal fans in the UK! We will bring our 3D tour production to give you the full KREATOR treatment. Support acts will be announced in the next few days, so stay tuned. Also, we are looking forward to play for all our Irish fans again, it has been quite a while. Our promise to you is a TOTAL MASSACRE!”

After an extensive European trek in support of their latest, critically-acclaimed, record, ‘Phantom Antichrist’, this awesome 3D stage-show is an experience that UK and Irish fans should be prepared for… this isn’t a normal show, this should come with a warning sticker!

Check out their latest video for ‘Civilisation Collapse’ for a taster:
