Max and Iggor Cavalera have added two musicians to the touring band for their new tour.
The brothers announced Tuesday, they have added Dan Gonzalez (Possessed, Gruesome) and Mike Leon (Soulfly) to the touring lineup. Iggor spoke highly of the new additions to the touring lineup.
“We can only count with the illest players to step on stage with me and Max to play Beneath/Arise,” Iggor said. “So getting Dan Gonzalez from Possessed/Gruesome and Mike Leon from Soulfly was an amazing choice!… Can’t wait to hit the road!”
Leon shared Iggor’s enthusiasm.
“I am super excited to be a part of the revival of these classic albums with the brothers that created them, it is a great honor!,” he said. “These shows are gonna CRUSH, and I’m sure that we are gonna deliver these songs better than they have ever been played before to everyone who joins us! See you on the road!”
Gonzalez also shared positive thoughts about joining the group on the road.
“It would be an understatement to say that I am incredibly stoked and honored to be able to play with Max and Iggor, and the fact that we’ll be playing material from Beneath The Remains and Arise is beyond surreal to me since I grew up worshiping those albums,” Gonzalez said. “Max and Iggor helped change the standards of extreme Metal and those albums are still living proof of that. It’s insane to me as a fan and as a musician to be able to play these songs live, and I can’t wait to do them justice!!!”
