MAX & IGOR CAVALERA Interview – Talk Extending Roots Tour Into 2017

Frank sits down with Max & Igor Cavalera to talk about the 20th anniversary Roots tour, why they enjoy it more now than they did during the Sepultura days, plans to extend the Roots tour in new markets, how Roots will inspire the next Cavalera Conspiracy album, and what they would change about the album 20 years later.

Here's what Max said about keeping the Roots tour going:

I hope next year we can do a little bit more of it, even though it's twenty one years. We'd love to do it again with a couple of different bands opening up. Igor reached out the other day to the Full of Hell guys, and maybe we can get them out on the tour with us. That would be awesome. We could get some other cool new bands to be a part of it, and then we'll probably continue until it's time to do another Cavalera album which will eventually come to that. I think what's cool about this is that I think this tour is going to inspire what we do on the next Cavalera record. Because it's a really inspiring tour. Just to see all the fans back and see new fans, kids that weren't even born when Roots came out, and they're in the crowd, going crazy over it. It's a trip for us as musicians to see that. And we know how important "Roots" was for the metal world. It's the album that broke out a lot of barriers, with the tribal stuff we did. Nothing like that was done before, so it's a groundbreaking record that's fun to play live.
