Max Cavalera spent the last year revisiting Sepultura‘s Roots album in full on tour, and now he will be returning to his musical past once more time. He has announced he will hit the road with Soulfly as the band performs Nailbomb‘s Point Blank for its entire fall North American run.
Soulfly formed in 1997 with original lyrical content revolving around spirituality, political and religious themes. Later albums embraced other themes including war, violence, aggression, slavery, hatred, and anger. Cavalera formed the band after he left the Brazilian group Sepultura in 1996. To date, the band has released ten studio albums, one tour EP, twenty-three singles, one video album, and twelve music videos. Their debut album, Soulfly, was released on April 21, 1998, while their newest album, Archangel, was released on August 14, 2015. Cavalera has said he founded the band “with the idea of combined sounds and spiritual beliefs”.
The tour will begin on Oct. 6 in San Diego, Calif., hitting major cities throughout the U.S. and Canada, and end one month later on Nov. 8 in Albuquerque, N.M. Support on the tour will come from Cannabis Corpse (Oct. 6 – 24), Harms Way (Oct. 28 – Nov. 8), Noisem and Lody Kong, which features Max’s sons Igor Jr. and Zyon (who is also Soulfly’s drummer).
