“We are so excited to go back to North America,” commented Sepultura guitarist Andreas Kisser. “Last year’s tour was great, but this time we have the new album, ‘Kairos’ out and people already know the new stuff.
“Plus, it’s the first time we are touring with our longtime friends in Death Angel, Havok, and our brothers from Brazil, Krisiun… So prepare yourselves for an amazing and historical tour. North America deserves some real extreme and intense metal! … Destroy!”
