Commented EXODUS guitarist/songwriter Gary Holt: "We are WAY more than fired up to announce that EXODUS will be playing the SoCal date on Ozzfest! We will be filling the slot usually occupied on the tour by KINGDOM OF SORROW who can't make this one show. We were asked if we wanted to jump in, and we said, 'Fuck yes!' See everybody there!"
