Each episode of Digital Tour Bus‘s “Tour Pranks” features an artist telling one or more of their favorite prank stories from being on tour. In the latest episode, which was filmed on October 11, 2015 in Joliet, Illinois, SOULFLY mainman Max Cavalera reveals some of the the pranks he and his bandmates have pulled on the road.
Drummer Zyon Cavalera did not play with SOULFLY on the band’s recent South American tour, which concluded on April 16 in Santo Domingo, the Dominican Republic’s capital city. Filling in for him was Kanky Lora, who plays drums for SOULFLY guitarist Marc Rizzo‘s solo band.
SOULFLY last month embarked on a four-week U.S. headlining tour. Joining them on the trek are brutal death metal legends SUFFOCATION, Metal Blade recording artists BATTLECROSS, as well as ABORMALITY and LODY KONG.
SOULFLY‘s tenth studio album, “Archangel”, was released on August 14, 2015 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. The CD was produced and mixed by Matt Hyde (SLAYER, BEHEMOTH, CHILDREN OF BODOM), and features cover artwork by artist Eliran Kantor (TESTAMENT, HATEBREED, ICED EARTH, SODOM).
Plying bass for SOULFLY is Mike Leon, who was previously a member of HAVOK. Leon said: “I’ve been a fan of Max [Cavalera, SOULFLY mainman] and his music since I was a little kid, and to be playing with him and the guys now is truly unbelievable!”
