Former HAVOK member Mike Leon has joined metal icons, SOULFLY, as the band’s brand new bass player!
“SOULFLY fans get ready”, states guitarist/vocalist Max Cavalera. “I’m really excited to announce that Mike Leon is going to be playing bass on our upcoming North American tour. I’m a big fan of Mike’s work and having him in SOULFLY is going to bring some of the killer thrash metal vibe to the band! He’s a great guy and I can’t wait to be on stage tearing it up with Mike. See you in the pit!”
Mike Leon adds:
“It is an indescribable feeling to be joining up to shred with SOULFLY! I’ve been a fan of Max and his music since I was a little kid, and to be playing with him and the guys now is truly unbelievable! I cannot wait to bring the ruckus on stage for all of the Tribe around the world! Rest assured that I’m going to rock extra hard for you guys! See y’all on the road!!!”
SOULFLY recently unleashed the first music video from the album – for the title track Archangel, director Robert Sexton commented:
“Not to overplay it, but the 360° aspect of this clip, and the fact that it’s SOULFLY, is pretty epic. Sure, it’s only one set up, but it’s the whole room and the viewer is standing in the middle of the pit! No one in metal has really exploited this new tech as of yet. Definitely a cool perspective.”
