SEPULTURA To Play Philippines This Month

Brazilian thrashers SEPULTURA will headline the Red Horse Muziklaban Festival in Manila, Philippines on November 29. The 15,000-capacity event is a local band competion, and since it is its 10th anniversary, the promoters decided to make it special and invite a great international metal band as a headliner. According to the promoters, they chose SEPULTURA over a lot of other groups after conducting a lot of research to see which band would be most suitable for the event.

SEPULTURA was one of the featured musical guests at last Thursday night's (November 13) ninth annual Latin Grammy Awards 2008. They performed a cover of "Girl From Ipanema" and a new song called "We've Lost You" from their upcoming album "A-Lex". Watch the performance below.

The ninth annual Latin Grammy ceremony was held at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas and aired live on Univision.

"A-Lex" (which stands for "no law" or "without law") is scheduled for release via SPV Records on the following dates:

Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Brazil: January 23
UK, Scandinavia, rest of Europe: January 26
USA, Canada: January 27

The CD, which is based on the Anthony Burgess novel "A Clockwork Orange" (later turned into the classic film by Stanley Kubrick), was recorded at in São Paulo, Brazil at Trama Studios and was mixed at Mega Studios. According to SEPULTURA, the follow-up to 2006's "Dante XXI" features 18 songs with a total playing time of 60 minutes and was completed in record time because it is basically a recording of the band's studio jams captured over a three-month period.

SEPULTURA's forthcoming CD will be the group's first to feature drummer Jean Dolabella, who replaced founding member Igor Cavalera in 2006. Igor has since reunited with his brother and former SEPULTURA frontman Max Cavalera in CAVALERA CONSPIRACY.
