As posted, Arizona-based Go Ahead and Die – the band featuring vocalist and guitarist Max Cavalera joining forces with his son, singer, guitar and bass player, Igor Amadeus Cavalera as well as Zach Coleman on drums – have officially signed to Nuclear Blast Records.
Go Ahead And Die are currently working on new tunes for their debut release, with more info on the matter to be revealed at a later time. In the meanwhile, see below for a brand new behind-the-scenes teaser clip featuring the band jamming out in the studio.
When the news broke of Go Ahead And Die’s signing to NB, Max commented, “One of a kind father/son collaboration bringing the old school with a new attitude! Sick riffs and abrasive lyrics from Igor and brutal drumming from Zach Coleman (BLACK CURSE, KHEMMIS) inspired me! Extreme times call for extreme music!”
Igor added, “We are beyond excited to sign with Nuclear Blast. They are definitely the right choice for this colossally heavy record. G.A.A.D. will deliver fast-paced, hate-fueled energy that hasn’t been heard in years.”
Zach said, “I could not be more excited to be a part of G.A.A.D. and to have the album come out on Nuclear Blast! I feel like we were able to capture (extreme) aggression with the record. It’s a mix of old school (think ’89 era metal/punk) style and newer sounds that reflect what’s going on around us. Protest and Survive!”
Nuclear Blast ended with. “For such a heavy, brutal, and pissed-off record; GO AHEAD AND DIE will leave any Metal fan with a smile on their face. With riffs the size of boulders and a genuine fuck off attitude that speaks about today’s horrors, this album will without a doubt leave a mark in Metal and we are happy to be part of the journey.”
