Richie Cavalera (Incite)

Richie Cavalera is a man very much in the mould of his stepfather, Max.  For a start, he’s a workaholic.  He’s very much a hands on guy when it comes to everything to do with his music.  And, like the leader of the Cavalera clan, he loves life on the road.

Having just completed an extensive tour with Cancer Bats, he immediately took his band, Incite, back out on the road, in support to Soulfly on a 17-country jaunt across Europe.  When the tour stopped off in Belfast, he sat down for a chat with PlanetMosh.

We talked about his love for the Northern Ireland capital, Incite’s new album, life on the road (and the 18 hour days that often involves), growing up in the shadow of the shadow of his stepdad (and stepping out of same), how this particular run of dates might well be the last ‘Maximum Cavalera’ tour – and shared the most valuable advice Cavalera senior has given him…

Incite’s new album, ‘Oppression’, is released via minus HEAD Records on 22 April.

The ‘Maximum Cavalera’ tour, featuring Soulfly, Incite and Lody Kong, plus special guests King Parrot, continues at King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut in Glasgow tonight (Thursday 4 February), and then as follows:

Friday 5 February – Manchester, Academy 3
Saturday 6 February – Norwich, Waterfront
Sunday 7 February – Wolverhampton, Slade Rooms
Monday 8 February – Brighton, Concorde 2
