Max and Igor Cavalera have announced a London date for their Return To Roots tour.

The brothers will play the classic Sepultura album Roots in full at the O2 Kentish Town Forum on November 30 in the middle of a run of European dates.

Max and Igor work together in their band Cavalera Conspiracy. Max left Sepultura acrimoniously in 1996 while Igor remained with the band for a further 10 years. Max’s last performance with Sepultura was at London’s Brixton Academy in December 1996.

Max Cavalera recently said the Return To Roots tour would be the closest fans will ever get a reunion of the classic Sepultura lineup.

He said: “We just decided to do the tour, because it was me and Igor because we were there from the beginning and we think it’s really cool for the fans to see that we are doing this.

“I don’t think there will ever be a reunion, so I think this is the closest to a reunion that we’ll ever get to see.

“We don’t really keep in touch. It’s really kind of a separate world of what we live in and what they live in.”

The Return To Roots tour is currently making its way across North America before heading to Europe.
