Soulfly Planning To Hit The Studio With Producer Josh Wilbur In January

It looks like Soulfly are planning to hit the studio next month to work on a new album with producer Josh Wilbur. Max Cavalera told Backstage Axxess the following:

“I’m actually writing right now. I’m collecting the riffs right now and getting the ideas. We are already kind of booked for January with Josh Wilbur, the producer of Lamb Of God and Gojira and Killer Be Killed. I think he’ll be great for the Soulfly record; he’s a great producer.

I’m excited, because I think the album will have a little bit of a return to some tribal sounds that I haven’t done since ‘Prophecy‘. So that’ll be cool, to return to some of that. And then the rest of the album will be a continuation of ‘Archangel‘; a lot of people like ‘Archangel‘.

And, of course, I think that it will be also somehow influenced by ‘Psychosis‘, ’cause ‘Psychosis‘ was such a cool record that I’m sure that somewhere in the Soulfly record we’ll have the influence of that on top of it too. So it’ll be a really cool record to work on.”

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.”
