Brazilian Titans Sepultura Previews Vicious New Material; On Tour W/ Voivod

Roorback Due In Stores This June!!!

With a gargantuan roar, the mighty Brazilian metal pioneers Sepultura returns to North America, embarking on a national trek with Voivod to usher in a brutal summer. Sepultura's motive: to introduce America to some of the band's most potent material to date; a preview of the upcoming June release of Roorback - a twelve track slugfest that further cements the band's creative force & unrelenting determination. The band's music is as diverse and multi-layered as ever, and the US tour will testify to Sepultura's unique dynamic of unified aggression.

Celebrating nearly 20 years of innovative & compelling music, the current incarnation of the band (São Paulo natives Andreas Kisser - guitars, Igor Cavalera - drums & percussion, Paolo Pinto - bass, and Ohio-bred vocalist Derrick Green) plans to bring its tribal fire to the people for a month-long stint advancing the new record, and then will head to Europe to perform a string of festivals and a headline romp. Following this, Sepultura will return to North America to tour through August & September. Autumn will see the band heading to the Far East, touring through Japan, Thailand, Singapore & Taiwan, then trekking to Australia and finishing the world tour through South America, culminating with 22 dates in Brazil alone! Many of the performances along the tour are being recorded for a forthcoming 'ultimate' live album & DVD, which is planned for a 5.1 Surround 'in-your-face' Sound production.

Sepultura comes to America after a wildly successful European leg, to which Kerrang! Magazine described in a '5-K' performance review: "…a rampage of gut-busting fury…on the eve of a shock and awe campaign of their own while the world plunges into Chaos AD, Sepultura are as relevant now as they've ever been."
