Max & Iggor Cavalera will perform their set with their Cavalera Conspiracy brothers, guitarist Marc Rizzo and bassist Johny Chow.
Tickets are on-sale beginning today and can be purchased via each individual venue. Visit your local RETURN TO ROOTS tour venue’s website for more information, or check back to www.maxandiggorreturntoroots.
In addition, very special Meet & Greet passes can be purchased at Max & Iggor Cavalera‘s merch booth each night. Fans will be given the opportunity to take a photo with Max & Iggor, and they will each sign a Roots CD, cassette or vinyl. This applies to only the Roots album and one autograph and one photo will be permitted per person. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to have your Roots album signed by the men behind the music.
“Metalheads! It’s time,” declares Max Cavalera. “20 years ago, we released the Roots album and changed the face of metal forever. Now, we’re returning to “the roots” to show everybody the magic and inspiration of the Roots live experience! You cannot miss this RETURN TO ROOTS 2016!”
Iggor Cavalera adds, “I am very proud to play Roots again, to reaffirm that after 20 years, it still moves people! We hit the stage again with Roots to destroy everywhere we pass by!”
Max & Iggor Cavalera are the original founding members of influential RIAA Gold-Certified Brazilian heavy metal legends Sepultura, and specifically the team behind the band’s early albums, including seminal releases Arise, Chaos A.D. and Roots. Since the band’s formation over 30 years ago, the Cavalera brothers have each seen unparalleled successes in the music industry. Max’s more recent work with Soulfly, Cavalera Conspiracy (also featuring Iggor) and Killer Be Killed, in addition to Iggor’s project MIXHELL, proves the lasting power of the Cavalera legacy.
Later this year, Warner Music will release a special vinyl edition of Roots, in addition to a CD/vinyl box set of classic Sepultura records, with more surprises in store. Stay tuned for a full announcement on the new editions, coming soon.

THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER:
The Black Dahlia Murder vocalist Trevor Strnad states, “We are extremely excited to join the Cavalera brothers in the celebration of Roots anniversary. If you would have told me when Roots came out that I’d be touring alongside those two, I wouldn’t have believed you… I am personally very pumped. Don’t be surprised when you see us in the pit!”
Allegaeon guitarist Greg Burgess states, “What can be said about the Cavaleras that hasn’t already been said? Growing up I think I wore out two copies of Sepultura‘s Live in Barcelona on VHS. Beneath the Remains and Arise were like my metal bible! So, going out with the Cavaleras is a dream come true. We’re very excited to be included on this tour.”
ALL HAIL THE YETI:
ALL HAIL THE YETI frontman Connor Garritty states, “This is like a dream come true! The Cavaleras have been a huge influence on AHTY and the entire metal community for many years. Roots was their biggest record and to be able to be a part of this history is a complete honor for us. We are beyond excited to share the stage with all of the bands on this run. We have a great set planned for all of our fans and we hope to see everyone out there! HAIL!”
Oni frontman Jake Oni states, “It is such an honor to share the stage with our new brothers Max & Iggor Cavalera, as well as The Black Dahlia Murder, Combichrist, Allegaeon and All Hail The Yeti. We can’t wait to get out on the road and slay!”
