Soulfly Signs With Nuclear Blast Entertainment

Soulfly is pleased to announce the band has inked a deal with Nuclear Blast Entertainment, a new division of Nuclear Blast formed by owner Markus Staiger and former Roadrunner A&R chief Monte Conner.

Soulfly will enter the studio this month to begin recording an as-of-yet-untitled ninth studio album. The record will be produced by Terry Date, who is known for his work with such bands as Pantera, Deftones, and Soundgarden, among many others.

"I'm really excited to be signing Soulfy to Nuclear Blast Records,” commented frontman Max Cavalera. “On top of it, we're going to be reunited with Monte Conner who I've worked with for over 20 years at Roadrunner. Soulfly's new album is going to be recorded in Seattle with the great producer Terry Date, and it's going to come out later in the year through Nuclear Blast worldwide. Keep it metal!"

"It feels so right to be reunited with Max Cavalera,” added Monte Conner. “He is the second artist I signed and we've made 17 albums together over the years, including several metal classics. Max's voice remains just as unique and powerful as the day I met him and I felt the last Soulfly album Enslaved was his strongest work since the band’s Gold-selling debut. I am honored to call him a friend and to continue to be a part of his mission."

The band recently released a short trailer in which Max updates the Soulfly tribe about the coming album. Watch it at this location.

Max Cavalera Talks Highlights Of 2012

Roadrunner Records asked a variety of the label's artists to fill out a brief survey explaining the highlights of their year.

Exceprts from Soulfly frontman Max Cavalera's responses can be found below (or read the full interview right here).

Best show you played: Soulfly live in Sao Paulo. The show was put together by fans. They demanded to see Soulfly live and the energy in the building was unbelievable. They sang every song so loud and I had my son, Zyon, playing drums and he stage dived into the crowd at the end of the show. What a great night!

Favorite song of 2012: Deftones, "Poltergeist," from their new album. Wicked!

Roadrunner Bands Talk Supportive Moms

This Sunday is Mother's Day, and Roadrunner Records though it would be nice to let some of the label artists represent for their moms, who supported their kids' musical ambitions early on. Roadrunner asked two simple questions - "Does your mom like/support your band?" and "What's your mom's favorite song by your band?"

Max Cavalera, Sepultura/Nailbomb/Soulfly/Cavalera Conspiracy: "Yes, my mom was our first big supporter. She let everybody camp in our house. Our house was always full of metal kids. Her favorite song is 'Innerself' [from Sepultura's Beneath the Remains]. I think she likes the lyrics, because it was about when I was living in Brazil and she remembers that period of our life."

Tyler Connolly, Theory of a Deadman: "My mother is a big supporter of our band, of course, and always wants to make sure we wear our seat belts on our tour bus. I don't think she has a favorite song, but always wonders where I got my terrible potty mouth from. We usually roll through her home town once a year and she's the best at wrangling sluts for me. I love my mom."

Phil Demmel, Machine Head: "My mom, being a musician, was supportive of my interest in music from the word go. Her and my father cultivated my 'hobby' doing everything from matching me dollar for dollar on my first guitar, videotaping my earliest gigs at the seediest Bay Area bars/clubs, to standing on stage with me in front of 60,000 people in her native Portugal when we opened for Metallica. She loves our acoustic material. Our songs 'Descend the Shades of NIght' and 'Darkness Within' are favorites." More...
