“Why Would We Do That? To Ruin The Party?”

If you’re one of those Sepultura fans from the old days when the band’s line-up included the Cavalera brothers, and have been holding hopes for a reunion of that band’s line-up that ruled during the period from Schizophrenia to Roots, it seems you’ll be out of luck.

Sepultura‘s guitarist Andreas Kisser was recently featured on the Portuguese Sonoros Podcast, where they discussed soccer, the band’s history, the impact of the band’s last few albums, and their plans for a “special tour” for 2024, one that will commemorate the band’s 40th anniversary of existence. The news about such a tour came at the very end of the conversation when Kisser was asked if the quartet was planning to work a follow-up to their 2020’s album Quadra, anytime soon.

“No, a new record now… don’t even think about it. The pandemic really stretched things out, and Quadra is actually still very new. We still have a lot to do with this record. We want to celebrate 40 years next year and do a special tour for the occasion. So, when it comes to a new record… take it easy!” Kisser remarked.

Andreas was then asked if Max and Iggor – who left in 1996 and 2006 respectively — will be invited to mark the occasion: “How about bringing the former members for the 40th anniversary celebration?” Kisser‘s answer was as concise and clear as it could have been: “No, why would we do that? To ruin the party?”

Sepultura have been touring endlessly to support Quadra, and wrapped up a tour, on a double headliner bill, with Kreator, plus Death Angel and Spiritworld just weeks ago.
