Sepultura have released an online documentary charting their 2015 winter UK tour.

The band were on the road on the back on their Under My Skin EP which was issued to mark the 30th anniversary of the band.

The footage shows the group travelling across the country, visiting Manchester, Glasgow, Bristol and London, playing live – and also features interviews with the band, where they talk about their history.

Frontman Derrick Green came into the band in 1997 – and reveals heading to the group’s Brazilian homeland was initially a stuggle for him.

Green says: “It was difficult the first few years, not knowing he language, learning the language, trying to determine who my friends were and weren’t and finding people who were real.

“After a few years of really struggling, I started to find my way and to click with the culture and the people – it really is a second home for me.”

As for Sepultura’s musical direction, the vocalist adds: “As an artist I definitely see myself growing and want to be able to evolve. I believe I’ve been able to do that with Sepultura because it’s really open to go in so may different directions and not be stuck doing one thing and repeating the same things.”

Sepultura are currently working on what will be their 14th studio album, with the band saying earlier this year that it would feature “different heavy sounds.”

The band are currently on tour, with dates scheduled throughout the rest of this year and into 2017.
