As previously reported, SEPULTURA's official web site was recently updated with links to video footage of the band's entire two-song performance on the Brazilian TV show "Programa do Jô" on September 7, 2006:
Also available are pictures from the band's September 16, 2006 concert in Vitória, Espirito Santo, Brazil. Check them out at this location.
SEPULTURA's appearance on "Programa do Jô" marked the TV debut of the band's 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.
