Cavalera Conspiracy recently tapped Johny Chow (a.k.a. John Mark Bechtel; Fireball Ministry, Souls Of We, ex-Systematic, My Ruin) to play bass on the group's current European tour. Joe Duplantier of the French progressive death metallers Gojira, who laid down all the bass tracks on Cavalera Conspiracy's debut album, "Inflikted", is currently in the studio working on the new Gojira CD and is unable to join Cavalera Conspiracy on the road.
Johny Chow played his first show with Cavalera Conspiracy on May 30 at the Electric Weekend in Madrid, Spain.
Cavalera Conspiracy will team up with The Dillinger Escape Plan, Throwdown, Bury Your Dead and Incite for a North American tour in July.
