To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the legendary Sepultura album ‘Roots‘ – brothers Max and Iggor Cavalera started playing ‘Return To Roots‘ shows last year. That tour has continued into 2017 and will now tour Australia this September where they will be playing the album in its entirety each night.

Twenty years later, set beside a new crop of metal bands–groups who have pioneered new soundscapes, redefined heavy, and brought a new integrity to heavy metal – ‘Roots‘ still stands tall, a high water mark for metal.

Max Cavalera says:

Metalheads. It’s time. Twenty 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!

While Iggor 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.

Joining them for this dash around the country will be long running Welsh metal band Skindred.

Tickets will go on sale this Thursday 6th July. See all the dates and venues below, set a reminder.
