The age of “Quadra” is upon us: on February 7th, 2020, Sepultura will release their new masterpiece - a savage slap in the face proving once again the sheer endless versatility of the Brazilian metal heroes.

“Quadra” is Sepultura’s fifteenth studio album, which presents a thrilling and brutally honest concept around the Portuguese word “quadra”. Everyone grows up in a different quadra, shaped by rules and definitions. We are all determined by these concepts, our relationships, our careers. Our whole lives.

The band released the first single from “Quadra” recently. Watch “Isolation” below.

“Quadra” will be available as Limited Edition 2CD Digipack, 2LP Vinyl, 2LP Vinyl Picture Disk, Earbook, and CD.

“Quadra” saw the band pushing their own mental and physical boundaries and has been one of their hardest albums to complete, as singer Derrick Green explains: “The experience was like no other time in the studio. I felt the preparation was key in making the recording process go as smoothly as possible. We were relentless each day giving everything that we had until complete exhaustion of the mind, body, and soul. This album is a direct result of the sign of the times. The music is an evolution needed to push ourselves to go further than we ever have”.
 
We all come from different "Quadras". The countries, all nations with their borders and traditions; culture, religions, laws, education and a set of rules where life takes place. Our personalities, what we believe, how we live, how we build societies and relationships, all depends on these set of rules that we grew up with. Concepts of creation, gods, death and ethics.
 
Money, we are enslaved by this concept. Who’s poor and who’s rich, that’s how we measure people and material goods. Regardless of your Quadra you need money to survive, the prime rule to play this game called life. Hence the coin.
 
The coin is forged with the senator skull, who represents the set of rules and laws we live by; the world map on his head delimiting the borders of all nations, imaginary lines separating people by concepts of race and the sacred”.
