SOULFLY Mainman Interviewed At U.K.'s SONISPHERE Festival

NME TV and Sonisphere TV conducted separate interviews with SOULFLY mainman Max Cavalera at the U.K. edition of the Sonisphere festival, which is being held July 30 - August 1 at Knebworth Park. Watch the footage below.

SOULFLY recently confirmed the departure of bassist Bobby Burns (as BLABBERMOUTH.NET first reported on July 18). According to the band, "The split was completely amicable and there was no animosity on either side."

Johny Chow, who has played with SOULFLY's Max Cavalera (guitar, vocals) and Marc Rizzo (guitar) in CAVALERA CONSPIRACY and is a member of FIREBALL MINISTRY, is loaning his skills to SOULFLY tours for the immediate future until the position is filled. Fans will also be able to check out this "rare" lineup at the Wacken Open Air event in Germany next weekend.

Burns was a member of SOULFLY for seven years, during which time he recorded four albums with the Max Cavalera-led band:

* "Prophecy" (2004)
* "Dark Ages" (2005)
* "Conquer" (2008)
* "Omen" (2010)

SOULFLY's new album, "Omen", sold 6,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 73 on The Billboard 200 chart.

SOULFLY's previous album, "Conquer", opened with 8,400 units back in August 2008 to land at position No. 66 on The Billboard 200 chart. This number was in line with the opening tally of the CD's predecessor, "Dark Ages", which shifted a little more than 8,000 copies during its first week of release in October 2005 to enter the chart at No. 155.
