Evile To Tribute Dimebag and Mike Alexander With Live Pantera Cover at Texas Shows
Evile guitarist, Ol Drake explains the roots of this idea in a short statement: "We were recently sat in the van looking at the dates on this overkill run and we mentioned how cool the Texas dates will be. Then it hit me that Dimebag was born in Dallas, TX, and we recently covered "Cemetery Gates" and received some good feedback on it.
"So we thought why not play it live in Dallas? I think it'd be a great tribute to Dime and Pantera, and we love playing the song. We'll be playing very early at the Texas shows so please turn up early to see Evile's set. The number of times people have come up to me saying they missed us from thinking the doors were later is ridiculous.
"I know that if Mike were here for this tour, he'd be the first to suggest doing this in Dallas, so we can't wait."
