Marc Rizzo Announces New Solo Tour

Marc Rizzo (Soulfly, Cavalera Conspiracy) has announce he will be touring in support of his new solo project "Legionaire." The album was written and recorded over a two year period, while touring worldwide with Soulfly and Cavalera Conspiracy. “I’m really excited about this record," exclaims Rizzo. “I had a lot of time since my last record to really think about this new album. I think traveling all over the world, writing all the new material, really influenced the sound. After two U.S. solo tours in 2008, I think I really figured out what songs work well live. I’m really excited to play these new songs in front of a live audience. It’s very cool to see kids slam dancing and going off to instrumental music.”

1/23 Springfield, MO Outland Ball Room
1/29 New Bedford, MA New Wave Café
