In honor of CAVALERA CONSPIRACY's forthcoming North American summer tour with THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, THROWDOWN, BURY YOUR DEAD and INCITE, the band is currently hosting a contest during the entire month of June and on into early July that awards one lucky participant and his or her friend at each stop along the way! The winner for each city will win a meet-andgreet (for them and one friend of their choosing) with Max and Igor Cavalera and free admission passes for the concert that they enter for.
For all the details, go to this location.
Professionally filmed video footage of CAVALERA CONSPIRACY performing the SEPULTURA classic "Roots Bloody Roots" on Sunday (June 1) at the Pinkpop festival in Landgraaf, The Netherlands can be viewed below.
As BLABBERMOUTH.NET first reported on Sunday, CAVALERA CONSPIRACY has tapped Johny Chow (a.k.a. John Mark Bechtel; FIREBALL MINISTRY, SOULS OF WE, ex-SYSTEMATIC, MY RUIN) to play bass on the group's current European tour. Joe Duplantier of the French progressive death metallers GOJIRA, who laid down all the bass tracks on CAVALERA CONSPIRACY's debut album, "Inflikted", is currently in the studio working on the new GOJIRA CD and is unable to join CAVALERA CONSPIRACY on the road.
Johny Chow played his first show with CAVALERA CONSPIRACY Friday night (May 30) at the Electric Weekend in Madrid, Spain. Photos of the concert are available at this location.
