Brazilian/American thrashers SEPULTURA will return to Indonesia for the first time in 20 years to perform in five cities in February 2012. The band will play in Medan, North Sumatra, on Feb. 3; Makassar, South Sulawesi, on Feb. 4; Jakarta on Feb. 9; Surabaya, East Java on Feb.11; and finally in Bali on Feb. 12 as part of the “Asia Relentless Tour 2012”. SEPULTURA will then continue its tour in the Malaysian cities of Kuala Lumpur and Kota Kinabalu.
“They will stay longer in Indonesia because they had canceled shows in Thailand and Singapore,” promoter Sony Horizon said Wednesday, according to The Jakarta Post.
Sony Horizon is working with Malaysian promoter Netzah Production to bring SEPULTURA to the region.
SEPULTURA played its first show with new drummer Eloy Casagrande (GLÓRIA, ANDRÉ MATOS) on November 25 in Lichtenfels, Germany.
The band is touring in support of its 12th studio album, and Nuclear Blast Records debut, “Kairos”, which hit stores in July.
