Brazilian metal pioneers Sepultura have issued a heartfelt statement confirming the beginning of the end of the band's monumental four decade run. Confirming the Celebrating Life Through Death - European Farewell Tour 2024, Sepultura will commence an 18 month global campaign that will mark the final tour and a fond farewell to the fans that have come along for 40 years.
Set to kick off in March of next year with a month long stretch in Brazil and an additional weeklong trek through Latin America, Sepultura will also head a 20-date European excursion which will nclude a loaded roster of support. Groove metal sensation Jinjer will serve as direct support with Florida death metal vets Obituary and Philly's hard-hitting Jesus Piece joining in the farewell festivities.
Confirming the news with a detailed statement filled with gratitude for the fans, Sepultura also unveiled plans to record a live album during the final run that will compile the best entries from the last tour to make one last compilation, documenting their live victory lap.
"Sepultura has reached the end of the road and has chosen to depart via a conscious and planned death.
Throughout the next 18 months we will celebrate 40 years of existence together along with our loyal fans on a farewell tour across the entire globe.
It will be a celebration of the past and the present for one final time.
After 4 decades filled with ups and downs, having visited 80 countries and countless different cultures, we’ve had the chance to become Brazil’s messenger to the world and spread our colors and rhythms worldwide. With our latest studio album Quadra, a highlight of our career, we added an unforgettable chapter followed by the SepulQuarta experience that helped us to overcome the difficult times of the pandemic together. We will unite our forces for one final, strong farewell. And all of you can be a part of it.
During this 40th anniversary tour, we will record 40 live tracks in 40 different cities and release a massive compilation of our best, most energetic moments on stage.
We are happy and very grateful for everything we could witness within the past four decades. We have released great albums and played unforgettable shows, cultivated friendships, met our idols, contributed to placing Brazilian metal on the world map, and therefore feel that we can leave the music scene with a sense of duty fulfilled.
We’ve always had the best fans in the world, who supported us with praise and criticism, who were demanding and intelligent, who grew together with the band and have always been loyal. Without you, none of this would have been possible. This album and this tour are for you. Dear SepulNation - we love you and always will!
Euthanasia, the right to a dignified death. The right to choose to live free and to choose when you die!"
