July 14, 2023 sees England’s EVILE strike again with their sixth full-length record, entitled The Unknown, via Napalm Records.  Today, EVILE have a lyric video for their new album single, “Reap What You Sow”.

Watch “Reap What You Sow” below.

Frontman OL Drake offers:

The second single from The Unknown is “Reap What You Sow” – a more up-tempo riff-fest. Without wanting to share too much about this track’s personal meaning, this song is about hypocrisy; someone saying not to do something, then they do it themselves. I gave Ingo, the lyric video director, no direction other than the lyrics, so the video is his own interpretation of the song. There’s a down-picking riff challenge in the middle section of the song. Enjoy!”

Pre-Order The Unknown HERE!

The Unknown will be available in the following formats:
– 1CD Digipak
– 1-LP Gatefold Black Vinyl
– Digipak + Shirt

“We’re really excited to start revealing the next page in the Evile chapter”, said frontman OL Drake. We’ve taken a completely different approach on this album and I looked inward for inspiration; I’ve opened myself up like I never thought I would. We’ve always been at 500mph, like on the previous album (Hell Unleashed) and this time around we felt we wanted to try the polar opposite – some slower-than-we’ve-ever-done tempos with more melodic vocal hooks, and give Adam some freedom on the leads/writing. I’ve been working on my vocals since diving in the deep end in 2021, and we’ve worked hard for 2 years on this, so I’m excited for everyone to hear the fruits of our labour. We’re really proud of what we’ve all accomplished with this album. This is the one I hope can catapult us to more ears and places we haven’t been before to play for people who are constantly asking us to play in their area.

The Unknown was recorded by Tim Vincent at Longwave Studios, Cardiff UK, and was produced, mixed and mastered by Chris Clancy at the same Longwave Studios.
