Exodus: New Album Title Revealed
Exodus’ eleventh full-length studio album will be titled Persona Non Grata, and it’s due out next summer, the band has revealed.
The news broke in Decibel‘s preview of hotly-anticipated 2021 releases. Guitarist Gary Holt has since confirmed the news via Instagram, revealing that the only thing left to record is some of frontman Steve “Zetro” Souza’s vocals:
“So the title of the new record is out! The next Exodus record is titled Persona Non Grata and will be our summer 2021! And I LOVE the studios name here in Decibel, ‘The garage next to Tom Hunting’a house’! Haha! Engineered by Steve Lagudi, produced by us, being mixed by Any Sneap as we speak . Early indications are this monster sounds fucking sick! Doing some spot vocal stuff tomorrow with Zetro and then tracking is DONE. Gonna be a long wait until the release of this beast .”
The only other thing we really know about the thrash veterans’ latest offering — their first since 2014’s Blood In, Blood Out — is that it will feature a guest solo by former lead guitarist Rick Hunolt.
Meanwhile, Holt is rumored to be part of a new project with his former Slayer bandmates, Kerry King and Paul Bostaph, and some dude named Phil Anselmo.
