Quadra

Big news on the Sepultura front! The band just released their new single, Isolation, from their upcoming album, Quadra.  The band will release their 15th studio album on 7 February 2020 via Nuclear Blast.  Sepultura engaged producer Jens Borgen for the recording of the album at Fascination Street Studios in Sweden.  The album cover was created by Christiano Menezes from Darkside Books.

Quadra is a concept album and, as explained by the band: “Quadra, among other meanings, is the Portuguese word for ‘sport court’ that by definition is a limited area of land, with regulatory demarcations, where according to a set of rules the game takes place.  We all come from different Quadras. The countries, all nations with their borders and traditions; culture, religions, laws, education and a set of rules where life takes place. Our personalities, what we believe, how we live, how we build societies and relationships, all depends on these set of rules that we grew up with. Concepts of creation, gods, death and ethics. Money, we are enslaved by this concept.    Who’s poor and who’s rich, that’s how we measure people and material goods. Regardless of your Quadra, you need money to survive, the prime rule to play this game called life. Hence the coin. The coin is forged with the senator skull, who represents the set of rules and laws we live by; the world map on his head delimiting the borders of all nations, imaginary lines separating people by concepts of race and the sacred.”

The band has posted its official music video for Isolation on YouTube and can be viewed below.  The video features video from their first live performance of the song at Rock in Rio in Brazil.

Isolation is also currently available for digital streaming on Amazon Music, Apple Music and Spotify.  A digital copy of Isolation may also be purchased on iTunes and Amazon.com.

This show is going to be a no-frills, no-bull shit throw down.
