Brazilian/American metallers SEPULTURA will celebrate their 30th anniversary by releasing a special tribute to their fans. The band has asked fans to contribute to the artwork for a new track, and the result is "Sepultura Under My Skin", which will be released on June 5 on colored vinyl. The artwork for this release was created using pictures of tattoos of SEPULTURA fans all over the world.
SEPULTURA will headline a North American tour in May with support from German thrashers DESTRUCTION and American melodic tech-deathsters ARSIS.
The mayhem begins in Phoenix, Arizona on May 10 and ends on June 14 in Grand Junction, Colorado. SEPULTURA will also perform on May 9 at the Rock In Rio USA festival in Las Vegas.
"We will be playing songs that we normally don't perform, so all you hardcore fans will not want to miss the surprises," says SEPULTURA frontman Derrick Green.
"Come join us and be a part of this special moment in our career. We look foward to seeing you all there!"
SEPULTURA's latest album, "The Mediator Between Head And Hands Must Be The Heart", sold around 1,800 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD came out on October 29, 2013 via Nuclear Blast Records.
"The Mediator Between The Head And Hands Must Be The Heart" was tracked over a 40-day period at producer Ross Robinson's (KORN, LIMP BIZKIT, SLIPKNOT) studio in Venice, California and was mixed and mastered by co-producer Steve Evetts, who previously worked with SEPULTURA on the "Nation" (2001), "Revolusongs" (2002) and "Roorback" (2003) albums, in addition to having collaborated with Ross on a number of other projects in the past.
