NEWS: Exodus bring the beatings…

It’s been seven long years since the last album from Thrash legends Exodus but finally the wait is over. “The Beatings Will Continue (Until Morale Improves)” marks the first single from “Persona Non Grata” which is set for 19th November via Nuclear Blast as drummer Tom Hunting continues his recovery from Cancer treatment. Offering 12 new cuts, it began to take shape in 2017 before guitarist Gary Holt went on an extended farewell tour with Slayer and has been described by vocalist Steve “Zetro” Souza as being heavy and not a continuation of their last album “Blood In, Blood Out“.

The people that disgust you – cut ‘em outlike cancer” explains guitarist Gary Holt. “Who is that person? It could be anybody. That’s up to the listener. Who is ‘Persona Non Grata’ to them? As we were working on these songs, things started happening around the world that ended up tying into it all, and we didn’t even know it! With the general divisiveness in the country today, and everyone being entitled to their opinions; I don’t agree with a lot of them, but I’m not here to be a preacher, either. We want people to listen to the lyrics and come up with their own meanings”
