Converge bassist joins Cavalera Conspiracy

Tuesday, December 31, 2013 9:55 AM PT

In a new interview with Rock Mania, Max Cavalera (Soulfly, ex-Sepultura) revealed that Converge bassist Nate Newton (who also plays in Doomriders and Old Man Gloom) has joined Cavalera Conspiracy on bass. Cavalera Conspiracy is expected to release their Napalm Records debut in 2014.

UPDATE: Newton has subsequently issued the following statement:

"Hello friends! Just wanted to get some info to everyone since I've been getting so many messages.... Yes I am playing bass on the new Cavalera Conspiracy record. No...I am not going to leave Converge. I thought it would be fun to play with the guys who wrote some of my favorite metal records. That's all...no big story here other than it's pretty awesome when people who's music you've admired for years ask you to be a part of it with them. I'm honored!"
