SEPULTURA Reveal New Album Title

During their performance at 'Rock In Rio' festival last Friday, Brazilian Metal icons SEPULTURA unveiled the first details of their upcoming studio album, and now want to make it official for their worldwide fan base; the band's next full-length release will be a thrilling concept album titled "Quadra", scheduled to see the light of day in early 2020 through Nuclear Blast Records.

Today, the band also unveils the cover of this 15th studio piece, created by Christiano Menezes for Darkside Books. Revolving around the meaning of the number 4, the concept goes much deeper and the band's mastermind Andreas Kisser explains the idea behind the depicted coin:

"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 release date, pre-order and first single from "Quadra" will soon be revealed, so stay tuned for further details.
