vocalist Derrick Green
clarified the band's stance on classic lineup reunion featuring the Cavalera
brothers, pointing out it's basically not something anyone involved would want.
"Nobody wants a reunion, as far as our side,"
Green told Hard Rock Haven
) "That's all I really know. We wouldn't be making all these albums and doing everything if there was any chance of those guys wanting to wait for a reunion; it would be kind of silly. I mean, we enjoy what we do; that's just the truth of it.
"People have to accept our happiness
the singer continued. "We're truly, truly happy playing powerful sets and writing and seeing the world and playing incredible festivals and having amazing opportunities. That's what we work for and that's our lives. So we've just been evolving. And nobody wants to really step backwards and just do something just to please..."
Derrick also stressed that a reunion can always flop and not meet fan expectations. "
[There's always the chance] that
[a reunion] is going to be disappointing and it will backfire in your face. Where people just walk away, 'Oh, man, it wasn't what I was expecting. I thought it would be, like...' And then, it's just, like, what the f--k? If you try to please everybody, you're gonna lose. You really have to take care of what is best for yourself and for the band."
