Soulfly To Work On New Album/Planning 20th Anniversary Celebration

Max Cavalera recently spoke with Loudwire’s Full Metal Jackie, and discussed some of his future plans. Those plans include a new album and 20th anniversary celebration for Soulfly, and some more “Roots” shows.


Cavalera said the following:

“…It’s in big planning right now. I have to finish this tour first with the ‘Roots‘ thing which goes all the way to Christmas. Then I think January I start writing into the new Soulfly‘, which I think is going to be really great because I’m very influenced by right now by a lot of things from black metal like Abbath and Batushka and Mgla to stuff like Enslaved and Gojira, and Abbath and to underground stuff like Full Of Hell, Nails, it’s gonna be a hell of a record.

I think it’s influenced by all of that, hopefully we get to work with Matt Hyde again. He did the last record. I just gotta think of a topic, something that’s very special for the 20 year. I think we’re gonna release it on Nuclear Blast, hopefully before the end of the year, next year. Then go on a big tour for that. That’ll be great.

Then sometime later, I’d love to do a little bit with Killer Be Killed, which is another project that I really love which is the stuff with Greg [Puciato] from the Dillinger Escape Plan and Troy [Sanders] from Mastodon. We did one record and it was very well received, and I think we can do a better one than that. I think we can really — if we work hard on it — we can make a kick ass second Killer Be Killed album.

Those things are kind of my plans for next year. Heavily writing. I think we’re doing a little bit of the Roots touring, even a little bit, places like New York, that we didn’t go with this run. We’re gonna try to do it I think in March. So I think there will be a little more touring with Roots to close it up, finally.

Then it’s back to Soulfly 20 year, a big campaign on the whole 20 year anniversary of the band. Make a record out of it, have a kick ass record to celebrate the 20 years of this band I’m very proud of it. So, yeah. It’s gonna be a busy year, we’re looking forward to that.”
