HUDDERSFIELD metallers Evile have announced the bands that will support them on next week’s UK tour.

The rising thrash stars personally chose 10 finalists for each of their gigs and held a competition, in conjunction with Metal Hammer magazine, for readers to vote five bands as their opening support acts.

After thousands of votes, the winners for each city are now confirmed: Manchester - Bludvera, Newcastle - Vortex, Glasgow - Circle of Tyrants, Nottingham - Impaled Existence, London - Bleeding Oath. The tour with Elimination and Mutant begins at Manchester Academy 3 on Wednesday, February 9.
