Max & Iggor Cavalera Hope To Do More “Roots” Shows Next Year

Max & Iggor Cavalera are currently on the road touring in support of the 20th anniversary of Sepultura’s “Roots,” but it looks like they may add another leg to the trek. Max Cavalera told Metal Injection that they have already begun reaching out to supporting acts of a 2017 tour. You can watch that chat below:

Max said the following:

“I hope next year we can do a little bit more of it, even though it’s twenty one years. We’d love to do it again with a couple of different bands opening up. Igor reached out the other day to the Full Of Hell guys, and maybe we can get them out on the tour with us. That would be awesome. We could get some other cool new bands to be a part of it, and then we’ll probably continue until it’s time to do another Cavalera album which will eventually come to that.

I think what’s cool about this is that I think this tour is going to inspire what we do on the next Cavalera record. Because it’s a really inspiring tour. Just to see all the fans back and see new fans, kids that weren’t even born when ‘Roots‘ came out, and they’re in the crowd, going crazy over it. It’s a trip for us as musicians to see that. And we know how important ‘Root‘” was for the metal world. It’s the album that broke out a lot of barriers, with the tribal stuff we did. Nothing like that was done before, so it’s a groundbreaking record that’s fun to play live.”
