To replace him, Andreas Kisser, Derrick Green, and Paulo Xisto announced American Greyson Nekrutman as the new member.

Considered one of the most talented young figures in the Metal scene, Greyson is only 21 years old, started his career with a focus on Jazz, and gained prominence by contributing to Suicidal Tendencies.

"Today, I express my sincere gratitude for the incredible opportunity to join the legendary members of Sepultura on their farewell tour. Contributing to this legacy is a privilege that fills me with honor and enthusiasm. Sepultura's fearless approach to exploring new territories in the metal sphere is something I have always admired and used as inspiration in my own musical endeavors. I look forward to adding to the band's art, to connecting with the fans who have always supported Sepultura during their evolution, and also to creating new electrifying experiences on stage. Here's to the new chapters we will write, to the stages we will conquer, and to the powerful music we will present worldwide," Greyson said in a statement.
