Reunited San Francisco Bay Area thrashers EXODUS will be embarking on a European tour beginning in early June. The first confirmed dates are as follows:
Jun. 10-12 – Sölvesborg, SWE @ Sweden Rock
Jun. 22 – Glasgow, SCO @ Cathouse
Jun. 23 – Swansea, UK @ Escape
Jun. 24 – London, UK @ Underworld
EXODUS' first studio album since 1992's "Force of Habit", "Tempo of the Damned" is due in Europe on February 2 (the two-year anniversary of late EXODUS frontman Paul Baloff's passing) and in the U.S. on March 9 through Nuclear Blast Records.
"Tempo Of The Damned" was recorded at Prairie Sun and Tsunami studios in Northern California with producer Andy Sneap (MACHINE HEAD, SKINLAB, ARCH ENEMY),who previously worked with the band on their acclaimed 1997 live album "Another Lesson In Violence".
EXODUS filmed video clips for "War Is My Shepherd" and "Throwing Down" in late November with director Maurice Swinkels. The latter cut is a reworked version of a song originally written for and demoed by WARDANCE, the ill-fated mid-'90s act formed by EXODUS members Gary Holt (guitar) and Tom Hunting (drums). Both clips are expected to begin airing very soon.
