SOULFLY To Headline 16th D-Low Fest In Memory Of Max Cavalera's Stepson Who Was Murdered!

On Thursday, August 2nd, Max Cavalera's SOULFLY will be headlining the 16th annual D-Low Memorial Festival at the Marquee Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona. Also appearing on the bill will be Incite and Lody Kong (both bands feature Max's sons) and a slew of bands that will be announced soon. The D-Low Memorial Festival is an annual event held in memory of Dana Wells (Max Cavalera's stepson), who was killed after the release of Sepultura's "Roots" in 1996. In 2004, the band recorded part of their 'The Song Remains Insane' DVD at the show.

As previously reported, SOULFLY will be performing at the 2012 "Gathering of the Juggalos", to be held August 8-12 in Cave-in-Rock, Illinois, where it's been the last few years. The event has been gaining mainstream media attention and getting larger and larger each year, with its organizers, Insane Clown Posse, welcoming hip-hop, Hard Rock and Metal performers, professional wrestlers, and comedians to the event's multiple stages, including everyone from Ice Cube, George Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic, and Method Man and Redman to GWAR and Charlie Sheen. And now, SOULFLY will be the first Roadrunner Records artist to play for the notoriously volatile juggalo audience, who shower performers with love (and Faygo soda) if they like them and hurl bottles if they don't. Here is what Max Cavalera had to say about this unique opportunity:

Says frontman Max Cavalera, "It's a challenge and at the same time it's an honor that they specifically asked for SOULFLY to play at the festival. We're gonna give our best show possible and we're going to fuck shit up at the Gathering of the Juggalos".

It has also be announced that the second chapter of the "Maximum Cavalera Tour" is happening! The trek which features SOULFLY, INCITE and LODY KONG, will kick off on Tuesday, July 31st in San Francisco, California and will conclude on Friday, August 17th in Amityville, New York.
