Official press release:
Progressive sci-fi metal innovators Voivod have just announced a Kickstarter campaign to fundraise for the continuation of their documentary film We Are Connected. The band have joined forces with metal film director Felipe Belalcázar, who most recently directed the critically acclaimed Chuck Schuldiner documentary DEATH by Metal. Check out and contribute to this very special Voivod project, HERE.
Drummer Michel “Away” Langevin says:
“We have worked with Felipe in other projects, and we have a mutual understanding of Voivod’s story.”
Exclusive interviews and archive access combined with Away’s artwork will take you on a sci-fi, thrash-metal journey into the Voivod dimension. Felipe states about directing Voivod’s We Are Connected:
“We managed to film about a quarter of the interviews planned before the pandemic hit in March 2020, and plan to resume production once cross-border restrictions are lifted,” .
In other news, Voivod are pleased to announce their return to European stages as part of the MTV Headbanger’s Ball Tour in November/December 2021 with Vio-lence, Exciter, and Artillery. See below for the full list of tour dates.
Voivod will be back at RadicArt Studios at the end of July to commence work on their upcoming studio album with Francis Perron, expected for release in 2022 via Century Media Records.
Voivod drummer Michel “Away” Langevin checked in with the following comment about all current activities:
“There is so much happening I don’t even know where to start…It’s been wonderful lately with the online Hypercube Sessions and our first two live shows in a long while. Now we just can’t wait for the upcoming European tour at the end of this year! Presently, we are fine-tuning the music for the next album, which we will start recording next week. I must say it’s a real thrill to write new material with Chewy, Rocky and Snake. Finally, we’ve also been involved in the making of We Are Connected, Felipe’s long overdue official Voivod documentary. We carry on!
