British thrashers EVILE are due to headline a night of metal mayhem on February 11th, 2012, during HMV's third annual Next Big Thing music festival tour.

HMV's Next Big Thing tour takes place at nine venues across the UK and celebrates the very best in new and emerging talent, drawn from all genres of music, with performances from bands and artists who are tipped to make it big in the coming year. Evile are set to perform at the HMV Ritz in Manchester, UK on February 11th, 2012. Joining them will be CEREBRAL BORE, SAVAGE MESSIAH and WOODS OF YPRES.

Evile drummer Ben Carter comments: "Evile are pleased to announce we will be returning to Manchester to headline HMV's Next Big Thing on Saturday, February the 11th, 2012! The gig will be at the HMV Ritz, and we'll be playing alongside such great bands (and labelmates) as Cerebral Bore, Savage Messiah and Woods Of Ypres. Tickets are in short supply and will no doubt sell out fast due to the nature of the event, so buy now to avoid disappointment! It will be a great night of mayhem and metal, so see you all there for beers!"

Tickets cost just £10 in advance with no booking fee, and are available now while supplies last at this location.

Evile have confirmed a European headlining tour in support of their new album, Five Serpent's Teeth, which is due to kick off on January 10th in Prague, Czech Republic.

Five Serpent's Tour 2012 will see Evile bringing their brand of hard and heavy thrash back to mainland Europe following a recent UK tour. The band will be tearing their way across ten countries with support from PORTRAIT and DR. LIVING DEAD.

Lead guitarist Ol Drake comments: "The time has come for Evile to return to Europe! It's been a long time coming since we last toured over there, but now Five Serpent's Teeth is out worldwide, we thought it only right to return! Check the dates and get your tickets! I was a bit upset to hear kids in Evile shirts were getting turned away from shows in the UK because they hadn't bought tickets and the show had sold out, so get your tickets now! See you all out there!"
