Thrash vultures Exodus have welcomed singer Steve “Zetro” Souza back to the fold. The band is also currently working on a new album, to be released later this year via Nuclear Blast. If that wasn’t enough, they’ve announced a US tour with Slayer and Suicidal Tendencies for the fall of 2014.
On 9 June 2014, Exodus were officially reunited with Steve “Zetro” Souza, singer in the band during the period 1987-2004. Souza’s statement wrote: “I spent a great part of my life with Exodus, that blood flows through me, even not being in the band for the past 10 years, you can’t erase that chemistry. I’m very excited!”. Exodus guitarist Gary Holt adds: “As a band, we all had to make a very difficult choice to part ways with Rob Dukes. We have nothing but love and admiration for him and the deepest gratitude for the hard work he has put in and the great work on some killer records. But at this time, Tom, Lee, Jack and myself thought a change was necessary and the unanimous choice going forward was to welcome back Steve Souza to the fold!”.
Exodus are currently planning a US tour with Slayer and Suicidal Tendencies, a repetition of their May 2014 tour. Steve Souza comments: “This monumental tour is a heavy metal collision of epic proportions. For my first tour back with Exodus, I’m beyond excited to be on the road with my brothers in true thrash metal! I’m also looking forward to meeting and hanging out with all of the fans on this heavy as hell tour.”
