EVILE are planning to play their heart-wrenching song, “In Memoriam”, live for the first time ever this weekend in memory of WOODS OF YPRES frontman DAVID GOLD, who tragically passed away on 22nd December.
EVILE will be performing at the HMV Ritz in Manchester, UK this Saturday, 11th February with CEREBRAL BORE and SAVAGE MESSIAH as part of HMV’s Next Big Thing, where WOODS OF YPRES were also originally scheduled to perform. EVILE have revealed that they will be performing “In Memoriam” – which is taken from the band’s new album, FIVE SERPENT’S TEETH – as a tribute to their fallen labelmate.
EVILE lead guitarist OL DRAKE has issued the following statement:
“We were all deeply saddened to hear the news of Woods of Ypres’ mastermind David Gold passing away. Their obvious cancellation of the Manchester show left a big hole in the lineup I was so looking forward to seeing and being a part of. We’ve been thinking of airing ‘In Memoriam’ live for a while, so we’d like to not only play the song for our own reasons, but to also play it at the upcoming Manchester show in memory of David.”
