RELEASE FIRST SINGLE ‘TRUCKLOAD FULL OF  BODIES’

FROM UPCOMING SELF-TITLED ALBUM

Nuclear Blast are proud to announce the signing of Arizona’s Go Ahead And Die. The band features 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 to produce a sound that mixes elements of death and thrash metal, with early Celtic Frost influences and a punk attitude.

Today, the band officially announce that their upcoming self-titled album will be released on 11th June via Nuclear Blast Records. Go Ahead And Die is a raw, urgent, unrelenting, thrillingly shocking and vibrant new band. Today, the band release first single ‘Truckload Full Of Bodies‘, along with a music video directed by Jim Louvau and Tony Aguilera.

Max Cavalera comments, “‘Truckload Full of Bodies’ is a dark x-ray of the COVID-19 pandemic. It examines the way certain politicians in 2020 didn’t care about their citizens. Hypocrites took care of themselves, and did not care about the rest  of us dying.”

Igor Amadeus states, “Like a riot breaking through your windows, G.A.A.D. arrives with a revolting mix of punk and metal, the perfect soundtrack to these dismal times.” 

Zach Coleman comments, “’Truckload Full of Bodies’ is a battering ram and fist in the face of those in power who had no problem watching so many people die. I think it perfectly sets the tone for the album.” 

Watch the new music video below:

GO AHEAD AND DIE – Truckload Full of Bodies (OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO)
Born from the mind of creative writer and musician Igor Amadeus Cavalera of HEALING MAGIC  and extreme metal icon, and SOULFLY leader Max CavaleraGO AHEAD AND DIE‘s tempos are wild, with a contempt for modern social ills palpable, its riffs monstrous and captivating. They make angry, spiteful, utterly engaging, spirited extreme music for increasingly extreme times.

The self-titled debut sees Max and Igor splitting guitar and vocal duties, with utter madman style drumming from Zach Coleman of the blistering BLACK CURSE and critically-acclaimed KHEMMISIt sounds like a relic from the glory days of thrash, proto-death metal, and filthy rotten punk, the kind of band that would inspire a teenaged thrasher in 1987 to carve the GAAD logo into a school desk.

Max Cavalera comments, “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 Amadeus Cavalera states, “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-fuelled energy that hasn’t been heard in years.” 

Zach Coleman adds, “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 comments. “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.”

Vocals weren’t tracked over and over in the pursuit of some kind of “perfect” takes. Coleman didn’t play to a click-track. The heart and soul of GO AHEAD AND DIE is all about just going for it, the traditional way. Engineer Charles Elliot  captured the sessions with the help of  Platinum Underground Studio owner  John Aquilino. The album was mixed by Arthur Rizk , whose credits include POWER TRIP , CRO-MAGS , andCAVALERA CONSPIRACY. The artwork for the album was created by Stewart Easton while the Circle logo was created by Jeff Walker (CARCASS).
