Max Cavalera Hoping To Release New Killer Be Killed Album Next Year

During a recent interview with Lee Bros Meats, Max Cavalera (Soulfly, etc.) offered a bit of an update on Killer Be Killed. He said he has been talking to the other members of the group and that he is hoping they will release a new album next year.

Cavalera had the following to say when asked about his future plans:

“Right now, I’m more focused on SOULFLY. We have two tours planned. Europe right now, and we have an American tour with UNEARTH. I do a little bit with my brother, [playing classic SEPULTURA albums] ‘Beneath The Remains’ and ‘Arise’ in Europe in November. I hope it comes to France. I think France would enjoy that. It’s a cool show. It’s different from SOULFLY. It’s like another part of my life I get to revisit. Then, of course, I still have KILLER BE KILLED, which I’m working on it for next year. I think we’ll hopefully have an album for next year for KILLER BE KILLED. I like this project a lot. I think we will have an album next year; I believe it. I’ve been talking to the guys. I think the first record was really good. It needed to be projected more, more promotion. More people needed to know about it. I think not a lot of people knew about it. So hopefully this time with this new one, we get to show it to more people. It’s a special project. I think the combination of me, Greg [Puciato, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN], Troy [Sanders, MASTODON] and Ben [Koller, CONVERGE] is very unique. It’s like THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, MASTODON, SOULFLY should not work. It should be shit. But it’s not. It’s good. I’m excited for next year.”

Killer Be Killed (Soulfly, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Etc.) To Work On New Album

Killer Be Killed, the band featuring Soulfly‘s Max Cavalera, Mastodon‘s Troy Sanders, The Dillinger Escape Plan’s Greg Puciato, and Converge’s Ben Koller, have regrouped to work on their second album. Cavalera told the “Red Light District Show” the following about that:

“We’re actually practicing tomorrow. The guys are flying here to Phoenix and we’re gonna go to our Soulfly place of practice, which is like this big warehouse that we have [with] all our gear there. So they’re flying in, and they rented a house. So, yeah, we’re gonna finally, finally get some new stuff. We’ll try to write as much as we can. I’m really excited. I think we’re gonna definitely have a new Killer Be Killed [album] next year, man — I can say that I’m pretty much 99 percent sure it’s gonna happen… Hopefully we’ll have some stuff done [during this songwriting session], enter the studio sometime… I’m hoping maybe at the end of the year we can actually go in the studio and record some, and continue maybe next year, and have a record out next year. That’s the perfect plan for me, at least I think in my mind.”
