Tribute for Mike Alexander

Evile have unveiled a tribute website to their late bassist Mike Alexander, who passed away on October 5 while the band were on tour in Sweden.

Fans will be able to read and share their memories of Mike and sign a book of condolences, as well as having the option to make a donation to aid Mike's family.

The band made the following comment:

"We wanted a definite place which people could visit to commemorate, remember and celebrate Mike. Thank you so much from all of Evile and Mike's family for all the support. It really means a lot. We'll be posting news regarding any benefit shows for Mike on the site, and also thanks to UKthrash.co.uk, people can donate direct to Mike's family, as well as send tributes, flowers etc. to the family via our management.

"We're hoping to arrange two very special memorial nights for Mike, so please keep an eye out (not literally out of it's socket). Please leave your messages for Mike's family and friends in the condolences section, and send any Mike pictures you have to the address on the site. Thank you to Hayley, Kathy Waters, Chris Wordsworth, Talita Jenman and Julie Weir for all the help getting this site going."
