The band, who appeared under the name TARRAT, were making their live debut with new bassist Jason Newsted (ex-METALLICA) in preparation for their upcoming co-headlining tour with SEPULTURA. Also appearing were local Bay Area metal veterans EXODUS, who performed their first live show since reuniting with vocalist Steve "Zetro" Souza in February.
TARRAT was the name utilized by Newsted and VOIVOD's Away and Piggy for their mid-'90s project which recorded a demo at Jason's Chophouse Studio that was never officially released. One of the songs completed during those sessions, "M-Body", surfaced on VOIVOD's 1997 release "Phobos".
VOIVOD's month-long North American co-headlining tour with SEPULTURA will kick off on April 18 at Avalon Ballroom in San Francisco.
In other news, a video of VOIVOD "jamming" on what appears to be Newsted's porch in Walnut Creek, California during the early rehearsals for the upcoming tour with SEPULTURA has been posted online at this location.
