Soulfly released their critically acclaimed 7th studio album Omen this past May, and from the moment the record was out on shelves to just last week, the band — led by legendary frontman Max Cavalera — were out on the road in support. Metalholic caught up with Max and Co. in Boise, Idaho. You can watch that interview here.
Touring the US twice, the UK, Europe, Russia, China, and stopping at many major summer festivals along the way, the guys have trotted the globe bringing their brutality to the masses — and that’s only this year. Next year, the guys still have more tour dates planned, meanwhile Max will be releasing a brand new album with Cavalera Conspiracy, and laying the groundwork on the 8th studio effort for Soulfly, giving a whole new meaning to ‘no rest for the wicked.’
From who has the best crowds to what region he visited for the first time in his lengthy career, check out what Max Cavalera had to say about his year on the road below.
