Andreas Kisser has kept himself very busy lately — supporting Sepultura’s recent tour and enjoying the long-awaited world premiere of their documentary, while also dedicating time to his supergroup side project De La Tierra.
De La Tierra released sophomore album II last November, with lead track “Puro” debuting just days before the record dropped.
