On April 6, SOULFLY performed on a Brazilian TV show called “The Noite”. You can now watch video footage of the band’s appearance below.
Drummer Zyon Cavalera did not play with SOULFLY on the band’s South American tour, which concluded on April 16 in Santo Domingo, the Dominican Republic’s capital city. Filling in for him was Kanky Lora, who plays drums for SOULFLY guitarist Marc Rizzo’s solo band.
SOULFLY will embark on a four-week U.S. headlining tour this weekend. Joining them on the trek will be brutal death metal legends SUFFOCATION, Metal Blade recording artists BATTLECROSS, as well as ABORMALITY and LODY KONG.
SOULFLY’s tenth studio album, “Archangel”, was released on August 14, 2015 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. The CD was produced and mixed by Matt Hyde (SLAYER, BEHEMOTH, CHILDREN OF BODOM), and features cover artwork by artist Eliran Kantor (TESTAMENT, HATEBREED, ICED EARTH, SODOM).
SOULFLY has tapped Mike Leon (HAVOK) to play bass on the band’s current tour. Leon said: “I’ve been a fan of Max [Cavalera, SOULFLY mainman] and his music since I was a little kid, and to be playing with him and the guys now is truly unbelievable!”
Handling bass duties for SOULFLY during some of the group’s shows last year was Max Cavalera’s son Igor, who also sings for the Phoenix, Arizona band LODY KONG.
Former STATIC-X bassist Tony Campos left SOULFLY in May 2015 and is now touring with FEAR FACTORY.
