SEPULTURA's Andreas Kisser and Derrick Green will be interviewed on Sirius Satellite Radio's "Hard Attack" on Sunday, December 24 at 3:00 p.m. ET. Repeat broadcasts are scheduled for Friday, December 29 at 5:00 p.m. ET and Thursday, January 11 at 10:00 p.m. ET. A press release promoting the upcoming interview reads as follows: "As SEPULTURA fights for its right to survive after the defection of both Cavalera brothers, singer Derrick Green and guitarist Andreas Kisser come to 'Hard Attack' to lay down the law. Hear their thoughts on reunion rumors that won't go away, plus their struggles with police corruption in Brazil, high times at the Desert Rock 2006 festival in Dubai — not to mention their reaction to the heavily-downloaded YouTube sensation, the 'SEPULTURA kids!' Host Ian Christe guides the journey through a modern-day inferno."
As previously reported, a nine-minute video interview with Andreas Kisser, conducted in early December by MetalMachine.net during the band's visit to New York City, has been posted online at this location (Windows Media).
SEPULTURA is in the middle of its first North American tour in nearly four years. Support at the shows is coming from SWORN ENEMY, DIECAST and SUICIDE SILENCE. The trek marks the band's debut U.S. appearance with their new drummer, Jean Dolabella (ex-UDORA), who replaced founding member Igor Cavalera in June.
Igor announced earlier in the year that he was taking a break from the group's touring activities to spend time with his second wife and their new son (who was born in January). Filling in on drums during the band's European tour with IN FLAMES was Roy Mayorga, who played with Igor's brother Max in SOULFLY for several years in the late '90s and again in 2001-2003.
Igor is the second Cavalera to leave SEPULTURA. In 1996, Max Cavalera exited the group after the rest of the band fired Max's wife Gloria as SEPULTURA's manager.
