British thrashers EVILE will celebrate this year’s Record Store Day by releasing a split seven-inch picture disc vinyl with Swedish death metal legends ENTOMBED.
The limited-edition release will feature ENTOMBED‘s classic 1990 track, “Drowned”, along with EVILE‘s 2012 cover version, available on vinyl for the first time. The seven-inch will be available in independent record stores on Saturday, April 20 in strictly limited quantities.
In other news, EVILE will perform a special show for fans at Crash Records in Leeds, U.K. on April 20 at 4 p.m. Space is limited, but fans who buy the seven-inch vinyl from Crash Records on the day will get free entry to the show (space permitting).
Comments EVILE drummer Ben Carter: “EVILE are looking forward to making some stupidly heavy noise at Crash Records in Leeds on Saturday, 20th April in support of Record Store Day! We’re going to start destroying ears at 4 p.m., so make sure to get in early as space will be VERY limited! We guarantee this show will be utter carnage and something very different than the norm. We can’t wait to see how a circle pit will work in a record store and need our fans there to show us!!! To mark the occasion, we’ll be selling our new exclusive 7″ split of our cover of ENTOMBED‘s ‘Drowned’, with ENTOMBED‘s original on the flipside. All this is to show support to indie retailers, so get yer asses down to Crash and show your support for the old school!!!”
Founded in 2007 and officially kicked off in 2008 by METALLICA, Record Store Day takes place on the third Saturday of every April and brings together artists and independently owned record stores around the world to celebrate the art of music. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day and sold in independent stores.
