Guitarist Ol Drake Rejoins EVILE After Five Years

Plus a new Evile album in 2019!

Plus a new Evile album in 2019!

Oliver Drake, better known as Ol Drake, left English thrash band Evile in 2013 to focus on his family and personal life. Evile recruited Piers Donno-Fuller to fill Drake's spot in 2014 but the band never released an album without Ol Drake – their last was 2013's Skull.

Now in 2018, Drake is back in action with the band! Evile has also announced they'll be headlining Manor Fest in Keighley on May 12, which will be their only show this year. Instead of getting out and gigging with Drake, they'll be working diligently on a new album to be released in 2019.

We've been sat on this picture for a few weeks now, so we thought it was time to announce that we have a new lead guitarist….

We are beyond thrilled to be able to welcome Ol back!

Make sure to come and see us headline Manor Fest in Keighley on 12 May as it's likely to be our only show this year. The link to tickets is on our events section.

After that we will be fully focusing on album number five for a planned release next year. We know that will make it five years between albums but the wait will be worth it.
