Nonetheless, the present should go on, so we have tapped fellow Brazilian @jeanpatt6n (of @project46_oficial) to riff with till Andreas‘ return. Enormous due to him for leaping in on brief discover (observe is sounding nice already!). Please be part of us in welcoming Jean and wishing Andreas one of the best.

This isn’t the primary time Kisser has sat out SEPULTURA reveals since he joined the band three and a half a long time in the past. Again in December 1991, Kisser was unable to carry out as a result of an arm harm and was briefly changed on a European tour by KORZUS guitarist Silvio Golfetti.
Final September, Kisser revealed throughout an look on TRIVIUM frontman Matt Heafy‘s “GLHF” podcast that his spouse had been recognized with most cancers in February 2021. He mentioned on the time: “She’s going by means of chemo, like surgical procedures and stuff. She’s doing nice; she’s doing nicely; the therapy is incredible. Nevertheless it’s an atomic bomb one after one other — pandemic, most cancers and stuff. And no matter that, we’re sturdy. We’re very united, we’re rising as a band and as a household, and myself as a human being.”
Final July, Kisser instructed A&P Reacts that he give up ingesting alcohol proper earlier than the pandemic hit. “It was top-of-the-line choices I made in my life,” he mentioned. “Not that I used to be a fucking out-of-control alcoholic, however alcohol was part of my life, of all the pieces I did. In sure levels much less and extra, but it surely was there. It was taking management of my life, of my decisions, of how I handled individuals or with a special day or one thing. Alcohol was concerned in all the pieces. And I do not want that. And I proved now that I do not, as a result of I am having a greater life. I am doing workouts. I’ve the routine I by no means had touring.”
He continued: “[When you are on the road], each time you are in a unique place, in a unique time interval. Otherwise you go to a toilet and you do not bathe and it’s important to journey, et cetera. That was our life. And with the pandemic, I had lastly a routine. I type of complained earlier than as a result of I could not do workouts, I could not have my eating regimen, I could not research classical guitar. Now I’ve all that, and I recognize that lots.
“The stuff that I’ve with my spouse and my children, that I am by no means house [when SEPULTURA is in the middle of an album cycle], I am at all times right here now. It was a tough time, however we recreated ourselves type of. We’re a greater household now — a a lot better household now. And that is very particular. And I’ve to be pleased about that someway, that I used to be ready actually to make one of the best out of one thing so horrible.”
In accordance with Kisser, “it was very straightforward” for him to surrender the bottle. “After getting a transparent concept in your thoughts, there isn’t any dialogue,” he defined. “I did not put the accountability on a saint or, to illustrate, in a church, or ‘I’ll cease for a 12 months’ or ‘I promise you, my spouse, I do not drink anymore.’ No. It is not for them. It is a very private perspective. It is me with me — no more. I haven’t got to place the accountability away from myself, in a time interval or in a sure spiritual perception or my household. They do not deserve that. That is my drawback, and I resolve it with myself. So I am in peace with myself with that. It is not one thing that bothers me. I may be round alcohol, I may be round events, I may be round backstage, as I did with my KISSER CLAN band right here and stuff. Individuals drink round [me], [and] I do not care. I do not even really feel the want to drink, which is nice. So I haven’t got a battle, let’s put it that approach. I am not operating away from something. I simply determined to cease. That is it.”
