Next to this digital get-together starting at 4.15 PM Brazilian official time (12.15 PST and 9.15PM CET), SEPULTURA come up with chats on their history, anecdotes and interesting surprises around the band.
Andreas Kisser about the idea of the SepulQuarta sessions, earlier:
“SepulQuarta was born out of the necessity to express ourselves in a different way since we’re all facing a new situation. We came with this idea still influenced by the concept of our last album ‘Quadra’, using geometry, numerology and numbers. Wednesday, which is the fourth day of the week, was chosen for an event.”
The band released their latest album “Quadra” through Nuclear Blast on February, 7th, 2020. The band was scheduled to tour North America past March with SACRED REICH, CROWBAR and ART OF SHOCK. This tour is being rescheduled for Spring 2021.
