British thrashers Evile have released the title and cover artwork of their upcoming album. The album, Skull, will be the band’s fourth full-length album and it is the follow-up to 2011’s Five Serpent’s Teeth. It was recorded with producer Russ Russell (Napalm Death, Dimmu Borgir) at Parlour Studios in Kettering, England. The artwork for the album was painted by artist Eliran Kantor (Testament, Sodom, Hatebreed).
Drummer Ben Carter commented: “EVILE are proud as hell to reveal the title and artwork for our fourth studio album on Earache Records, which is to be entitled ‘Skull’. We’d like to extend our thanks to Eliran Kantor for his amazing artistic representation of our original concept, which we’ll reveal further details of in the coming weeks. Our fans can expect this album to be a return to our thrashier roots, as well as exploring new ground in typical EVILE form. We’ve always said we want to progress and move forward in everything we do, and this album is no exception. We’re so amazed with everything Russ Russell and ourselves have produced, and can’t wait for it to be released upon the masses! Watch this space for more updates and album details. ‘Skull’ is coming…’SKULL’ AWAITS YOUR SOUL!!!”
Lead guitarist Ol Drake added: “‘Skull’ is not what you think. ‘Skull’ is not where you think. ‘Skull’ is a mythical void in the deep fathoms of space.”
The album will be released in a variety of formats on May 27th in Europe via Earache Records and on June 11th in North America via Century Media/Earache Records. Click right here to see a bigger picture of the album’s cover artwork.
