Soulfly have confirmed that they are currently finishing up their new album. The effort is tentatively set to be released in late 2021.
Max Cavalera said the following about the record during an interview with Chris Enriquez of “Saint Vitus Presents: Age Of Quarantine”:
“I’ve been working on the new SOULFLY since last year with my son Zyon. We brought [producer] Athur [Rizk] to Arizona. And that’s pretty killer. That’s some good shit. I’m excited for that.”
“[Rizk took the project] super seriously. He said, ‘Hey, Max, I don’t wanna do just another SOULFLY record. I wanna do the best SOULFLY record. I was, like, ‘All right. I take the challenge. Let’s do it, man.'”
Cavalera also added the following about the musical direction:
“It’s full-on. I think it’s got kind of like the best of all the years. I think it’s a compilation Max Cavalera record of the whole 50 years. [Laughs] That’s what it feels like — it’s got old stuff, it’s got middle stuff, it’s got very SOULFLY vibes. It’s got a lot of groove. It’s got a lot of fast stuff. We’re in the process of finishing it up right now. Hopefully it’s gonna come out this year.”
