British thrashers Evile have always been known as very down to earth and fan-friendly, and the band have proven this once again by hand-delivering their new album, 'Five Serpent's Teeth', to one lucky fan.
Evile members Matt Drake, Ol Drake, Joel Graham and Ben Carter set out on a road trip from their home in Huddersfield to Stockton-On-Tees to personally deliver the new album to Evile mega-fan Tony Dobson, following which the group went even further by inviting another fan along for a special inside look at an Evile band rehearsal.

Evile lead guitarist Ol Drake comments:
"Stopped off at Tony Dobson's house in Stockton-on-Tees to hand deliver the new album, 'Five Serpent's Teeth'. He won a pre-order competition to have the last album 'Infected Nations' delivered to him but Mike couldn't make it at the time. We promised him we'd return for us all to deliver the next one. Sat and drank some beers and scotch eggs while he listened to it and gave his honest and positive opinion. Thanks for having us in your home Tony!
"Then came back to Huddersfield to start another rehearsal and invited a local fan in called Tom. He'd asked me at a show in Manchester a while ago if he could come along to a rehearsal, so what better time than the day after his birthday (where he apparently sky-dived). Hope you like the album mate, and hope we didn't deafen your Mum too much."
'Five Serpent's Teeth' is out now in Europe on CD and limited edition vinyl, and is also available in a range of exclusive 'Serpent Cult' packs with extra merchandise.
