SEPULTURA: Song For VOLKSWAGEN Commercial Available For Download

Brazilian thrashers SEPULTURA recently composed the song "Coquinho" for a new Volkswagen commercial that aired in South America (see video below). As a "Christmas gift from the band," you can now download the track at this location.

On their latest release, "A-Lex", SEPULTURA guitarist Andreas Kisser and his three colleagues, Derrick Green (vocals), Paulo Jr. (bass) and new addition Jean Dollabella (drums), have dedicated themselves to Anthony Burgess's book "A Clockwork Orange", creating an awesome thrash metal opus around this timeless and exciting subject.

The material was produced by SEPULTURA and Stanley Soares at the Trama Studios in Sao Paulo and mastered by George Marino at New York's Sterling Sound studios. "A-Lex" is the first SEPULTURA album to feature new drummer Jean Dolabella, who joined the fold during the "Dante XXI" tour. "We've known Jean for more than three years, he's from [SEPULTURA's original] hometown of Belo Horizonte and joined us when Roy Mayorga left to team up with STONE SOUR," Kisser introduces his new drummer. "He's ten years younger than the other band members and has brought a new approach into the band. Jean has an amazing amount of energy and motivation. We're very happy to have him with us, and we're proud of the positive impact he's had on the material on 'A-Lex'."

"A-Lex" (which stands for "no law" or "without law") will be released via SPV Records on the following dates:

Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Brazil: January 23
UK, Scandinavia, rest of Europe: January 26
USA, Canada: January 27

"A-Lex" will be available in three versions: in a deluxe digipak with an embossed cover, in a regular jewel case and on a vinyl gatefold LP.

SEPULTURA was one of the featured musical guests at the ninth annual Latin Grammy Awards 2008 on November 13. They performed a cover of "Girl From Ipanema" and a new song called "We've Lost You" from their upcoming album "A-Lex".
