SOULFLY has tapped Mike Leon (HAVOK) to play bass on the band’s upcoming North American headlining tour, which is scheduled to kick off on September 30 in Los Angeles, California.
Handling bass duties for SOULFLY during the band’s recent shows was mainman Max Cavalera’s son Igor, who also sings for the Phoenix, Arizona band LODY KONG.
Former STATIC-X bassist Tony Campos left SOULFLY in May and is now touring with FEAR FACTORY.
SOULFLY will embark on another U.S. tour with CROWBAR this November, following the Max Cavalera-fronted band’s North American run with SOILWORK, DECAPITATED and SHATTERED SUN. Continuing with them on their campaign across the continent is SHATTERED SUN, along with the Phoenix, Arizona-based metal act INCITE.
SOULFLY’s tenth studio album, “Archangel”, was released on August 14 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. The CD was produced and mixed by Matt Hyde (SLAYER, BEHEMOTH, CHILDREN OF BODOM), and features stunning cover artwork by artist Eliran Kantor (TESTAMENT, HATEBREED, ICED EARTH, SODOM).
