In not very surprising news, SOULFLY have parted ways with their longtime record label/home Roadrunner Records and have signed a NEW deal with Nuclear Blast Entertainment. This label move is the perfect and obvious one for SOULFLY as Nuclear Blast Entertainment is headed by former Roadrunner Senior VP of A&R, Monte Conner and Nuclear Blast owner Markus Staiger.
Later this month, SOULFLY will be entering the recording studio with producer legendary producer Terry Date (Pantera, Deftones).
"I’m really excited to be signing Soulfly to Nuclear Blast Records. On top of it, we’re going to be reunited with Monte Conner who I’ve worked with for over 20 years at Roadrunner. Soulfly‘s new album is going to be recorded in Seattle with the great producer Terry Date, and it’s going to come out later in the year through Nuclear Blast worldwide. Keep it metal!" - Max Cavalera
"It feels so right to be reunited with Max Cavalera. He is the second artist I signed and we’ve made 17 albums together over the years, including several metal classics. Max‘s voice remains just as unique and powerful as the day I met him and I felt the last Soulfly album Enslaved was his strongest work since the band’s Gold-selling debut. I am honored to call him a friend and to continue to be a part of his mission." - Monte Conner (pictured above)
