British thrashers EVILE have announced two special memorial shows in the UK to honour their late bassist, MIKE ALEXANDER, who tragically passed away while on tour in Sweden on October 5th, 2009.

The two memorial shows take place on December 7th, 2009 at Rio’s in Leeds and December 8th, 2009 at the Underworld in London, and will feature live performances from Irish thrashers GAMA BOMB plus special guests MUTANT and SEREGON. Tickets for the show are only available directly from the venue for £8 in advance, or for £10 on the door.

A huge raffle will also take place at the memorial shows, with loads of awesome prizes, limited edition and signed goods to be won, all of which have been generously donated by various bands and artists. All money raised will go to MIKE ALEXANDER’s family.

EVILE lead guitarist OL DRAKE comments:

“These two nights are for all the friends and fans of Mike who haven’t had a real chance to say goodbye, and also for us to hold something a lot more appropriate than any funeral could be. Mike wasn’t religious, and his beliefs were solely based in music, so there is no better way to say goodbye. He lived for music and metal. We picked a few bands who Mike liked and we’ll no doubt be playing a few covers on the night. We’re holding a raffle with LOTS of items kindly donated by some amazing people and bands from around the world. Keep an eye on our sites for details of these – please come along and grab a raffle ticket – all money is going to the family.”


“It’s a real honour to play these shows for Mike. He was a star of a man and a brilliant friend, and it’ll be great to do something for his family and friends. We’re sure everyone will show their support for him at the shows.”
