Headliners SOULFLY will be supporting their upcoming vicious new release Archangel, which was produced by Matt Hyde (SLAYER, CHILDREN OF BODOM) and will be released on August 14th via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. “This is a great package and brutal lineup,” commented the legendary frontman Max Cavalera. “I personally am a fan of all these bands and it’s an honor to have them touring with us! See you in the pit!”
SOILWORK and SHATTERED SUN are both touring in support of recent releases, as well (SHATTERED SUN’s Hope Within Hatred, out now via Victory Records +SOILWORK’s 2013 double album, The Living Infinite via Nuclear Blast, in addition to their upcoming new music).
SOILWORK drummer Dirk Verbeuren offers up his sentiments about joining the tour, “We’re beyond excited to tour North America alongside SOULFLY, DECAPITATED and SHATTERED SUN. Is that a kick ass package or what? We’ll be debuting material off our upcoming tenth album as well, so don’t miss us when we come through your town!”
SHATTERED SUN frontman Marcos Leal adds, “We are beyond ecstatic to announce this tour with SOULFLY, DECAPITATED, and SOILWORK. Our love for these bands go back to the days we first decided to pick up instruments, from all the way back to the Sepultura days with Max and the first time we picked up a copy of Natural Born Chaos by SOILWORK.” Leal continues, “Both Max and Bjorn have been huge influences in my musical career. To share the stage with them and be a part of this tour is beyond a huge honor for us. Brace yourselves for this amazing line up of metal! See you this fall.”
