Exodus: New Album Details Announced, First Single Released

  • Axl Rosenberg

HUZZAH! The mighty thrash legends of Exodus have at last announced a release date for their new album, Persona Non Grata — November 19. That sounds further away than it is.

They’ve also released the first single from the album, “The Beatings Will Continue (Until Morale Improves),” and it… fucking… rips. Seriously, it’s been a minute since Exodus released a rager this ragin’ — I think it’s probably the best song they’ve produced with Zetro since the first Zetro era in the late ’80s/early ’90s. The guitar solos alone will make you cream your jeans. It is an excellent track to drum up interest for Persona Non Grata.

You can listen to the song below.

Exodus go on tour with Testament and Death Angel starting in October. They’ll also be playing two festival shows —  at Psycho Las Vegas (this weekend in Vegas) and Full Terror Assault in Illinois next month — with former drummer John Tempesta (White Zombie) while Tom Hunting continues to recover from cancer treatment.
