Sepultura’s new “live” recording, SepulQuarta is now available.
The band released the collection of quarantined performances Friday through Nuclear Blast Records. The semi-live recording culls performances that the band recorded during its “SepulQuarta” video podcast throughout the pandemic. The performances were by famous figures, such as Phil Campbell, Devin Townsend, and Alex Skolnick.
Guitarist and founding member Andreas Kisser spoke highly of the collection of performances in discussing its release.
“The SepulQuarta album is probably the one I am most proud of!,” said Kisser. “2020 was the most difficult time for a band to survive, without the stage and the direct contact with the fans, but we managed to keep going strong and the album is a consequence of the unity plus the positive attitude from the band. The album sounds great, alive, and very real! All the guests did an amazing job and we feel more than ever that we have a huge Sepultura family out there. Thank you so much for everyone’s support and hope to see you all soon. This album is for you! Enjoy the music!”
In correlation with the recording’s release, the band premiered the video for its quarantine performance of its song, ‘Slave New World’ Friday with Trivium front man Matt Heafy. The video is the third from the recording. The band has also released videos for its quarantine performances of its songs, ‘Mask‘ and ‘Apes of God.’ Devin Townsend guested on ‘Mask’ while Death Angel’s Rob Cavestany appeared on ‘Apes of God.’

In other news, the band announced last month, it hopes to finally launch its “Quadra Tour” next spring. The band has scheduled the tour’s launch for March 4 in Sacramento, CA.
The tour was originally scheduled to take place in spring 2020, and was initially postponed until this year as a result of the impacts of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The 2021 tour was then postponed because of the ongoing impacts of the pandemic.
The month-long tour, which is in support of the band’s most recent album, Quadra, is scheduled to run through March 9 in Berkeley, CA. It features performances in cities nationwide, such as Atlanta, GA; Minneapolis, MN and Greensboro, NC. Sacred Reich will serve as support for the tour, along with Crowbar and Art of Shock.
Front man Derrick Greene was optimistic about the tour finally getting off the ground as he talked about it during a recent interview.
“We are extremely excited to reconnect with everyone in North America for this upcoming tour,” he said. “We look forward to seeing all the people who have been anxious to see shows for the past two years. We will celebrate this re-connection of life and music together. See you soon!!”
Kisser echoed Green’s sentiments with his own comments.
“We can’t wait to go back on stage. We are very happy to announce our North American tour for 2022. We will see you all on the road, jamming old stuff new stuff and having the greatest time of our lives. See you all soon stay safe!”
