Cavalera brothers plan Roots anniversary tour

Max Cavalera has announced that he and brother Igor will play Roots in full on an upcoming Cavalera Conspiracy tour.

The Soulfly and Killer Be Killed frontman says the duo will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the classic Sepultura album on a US run later this year.

He tells PlanetMosh: “We’re doing some stuff with Igor later in the year. This is 20 years of the Roots album. We’re planning to play the whole record. I think we’re going to do it in the States and then hopefully come to Europe.

“Then I’m going to work with him to try to work on some new tunes for new Cavalera Conspiracy. I think this time we’re going to use a real producer, I don’t know who yet but I think it’d be really cool.”

Cavalera left Sepultura acrimoniously in 1997, followed by drummer Igor in 2006. Both brothers have previously slammed their former bandmates for continuing to tour and diluting the band’s legacy.

Sepultura are set to release their 14th album this year.
