Max & Iggor Cavalera to Perform Sepultura’s ‘Roots’ Album in Full on North American Tour
We’ve got incredible news to share with you all! Max & Iggor Cavalera will be embarking on a North American tour to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Sepultura’s Roots album. Throughout the entire string of dates, the brothers will be performing Roots in its entirety!
Sepultura’s Roots marked a dynamic shift in the Brazilian thrash band’s career as the musicians took inspiration from the native music of their home country. The experiment paid off, with Roots selling over 2 million albums worldwide and remaining a major point of celebration in thrash’s rich history. Neither Max nor Iggor is in Sepultura anymore, but they are the founding members of the legendary band.
“Metalheads! It’s time,” declares Max Cavalera. “20 years ago, we released the Roots album and changed the face of metal forever. Now, we’re returning to ‘the roots’ to show everybody the magic and inspiration of the Roots live experience! You cannot miss this RETURN TO ROOTS 2016!”
Iggor Cavalera adds, “I am very proud to play Roots again, to reaffirm that after 20 years, it still moves people! We hit the stage again with Roots to destroy everywhere we pass by!” Max and Iggor will perform their set with their Cavalera Conspiracy brothers, guitarist Marc Rizzo and bassist Johny Chow.
The tour will feature direct support from The Black Dahlia Murder, Combichrist, Allegaeon, All Hail the Yeti and Oni. Fans who attend the shows will be able to purchase special meet and greet passes from Max & Iggor’s merch booth. The brothers will take photos with fans who grab meet and greet passes and sign copies of the Roots CD, cassette or vinyl.
Tickets for most markets are on sale beginning at 10am ET today (July 29) and can be purchased via each individual venue. Visit your local Return to Roots tour venue’s website for more information or visit the tour's official website for updated ticket links as they become available.
