Sepultura have sadly just announced a European farewell tour.

The legendary Brazilian heavy metallers are set to say goodbye with a whole bunch of shows next October and November, with support coming on the 20-date UK and Euro run by an ace supporting cast of Jinjer, Obituary and Jesus Piece.

The band have shared a new statement detailing their impending split, explaining that they have “reached the end of the road and has chosen to depart via a conscious and planned death”.

Sepultura continue: “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 four 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 colours 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 onstage.

“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!”
