SEPULTURA Set American Release Date For 'Roorback'

Brazil's SEPULTURA have set an August 26 American release date through SPV Records for their latest CD, "Roorback". The follow-up to 2001's "Nation" was recorded and mixed by producer Steve Evetts (SNAPCASE, EARTH CRISIS) at Mosh Studios in São Paulo, Brazil, and was released in Europe in May through SPV.

Two versions of "Roorback" will hit the stands: the standard jewel-cased edition will feature the bonus track "Bullet The Blue Sky" (originally written and recorded by U2) as well as an enhanced video track for the same cut, while a limited edition 2-CD digipack will feature the aforementioned bonuses and the previously unreleased (in America) "Revolusongs" EP that features cover versions of songs originally recorded by JANE'S ADDICTION, PUBLIC ENEMY, MASSIVE ATTACK, DEVO, EXODUS, and HELLHAMMER. A North American tour in support of "Roorback" is planned for October.

As previously reported, SEPULTURA have been nominated for five awards at this year's edition of "MTV Brasil Video Music Awards". The video for "Bullet The Blue Sky" is up for an award in the following categories: "Best Video Editing", "Best Photography", "Best Rock Video" and "Viewers' Choice". In addition, the band's official web site,, has been nominated in the "Best Web Site" category. The awards presentation will take place later this month.
