EXODUS, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD, CRISIS To Team Up For North American Tour

July 7, 2005

Long-running San Francisco Bay Area thrashers EXODUS will be teaming up with 3 INCHES OF BLOOD and CRISIS for a North American tour beginning on October 1. LOSA will provide additional support between October 1 and October 18; WATCH THEM DIE will fill the opening slot between October 19 and November 6.

EXODUS recently finished recording their new album at Trident studios in Pacheco, California. The as-yet-untitled follow-up to 2004's "Tempo of the Damned" will mark the band's first release with new singer Rob Dukes. Mixing duties will be handled by Andy Sneap (MACHINE HEAD, NEVERMORE, ARCH ENEMY, KREATOR). Among the tracks set to appear on the CD is "Shovel Headed Kill Machine" (working title),which guitarist Gary Holt has described as "one of the fastest EXODUS songs of all time."

EXODUS recently parted ways with longtime drummer Tom Hunting after Hunting was taken ill and had to be hospitalized several times. He has since been replaced in the group by ex-SLAYER/FORBIDDEN skinsman Paul Bostaph.

EXODUS have yet to comment on reports that guitarist Rick Hunolt has left the group. All rhythm guitar work on the upcoming CD was handled by Holt.
