Brazilian/American thrashers SEPULTURA were forced to postpone tonight's (Wednesday, July 27) concert at Stadtsaal in Lendorf, Austria because the band's drummer, Jean Dolabella, is suffering from tendonitis. The show has been rescheduled for Monday, August 1.
SEPULTURA will perform tomorrow (Thursday, July 28) at Event Stage in Zizers, Switzerland with guest drummer Amilcar Christfaro from TORTURE SQUAD, the Brazilian thrash metal band which is currently on the road in Europe as the support act for SEPULTURA.
It is not presently clear how the remaining dates on SEPULTURA's current tour will be affected by this development.
SEPULTURA's new album, "Kairos", sold around 2,500 copies in the United States in its first week of release.
SEPULTURA's previous CD, "A-Lex" the group's first LP to be recorded without either of the founding Cavalera brothers (Max and Igor; on guitar/vocals and drums, respectively) opened with around 1,600 units back in January 2009.
"Kairos" (an ancient Greek word signifying a time in between, a moment of undetermined period of time in which something special happens) was released in Europe on June 24 and in the United States on July 12 via Nuclear Blast Records. The artwork for the CD was created by Erich Sayers, a Los Angeles-based freelance digital artist and photographer whom SEPULTURA first met at the band's concert at the House Of Blues in West Hollywood, California.
