Exodus Announce New Album 'Blood in, Blood Out,' Confirm October Release
Thrash icons Exodus have announced "Blood in, Blood Out" as the title of their new album, the first one featuring vocalist Steve Souza since 2004's "Tempo of the Damned."

The record is tentatively due in late October via Nuclear Blast Records and will be followed by a major tour with Slayer and Suicidal Tendencies during November and December.

Telling Radio Futuro how excited he is about the return, Souza added, "I think everybody's matured quite some bit, and I think, as we all get older, we all realize things that we do wrong, especially myself, we realize our faults and our mistakes. And it's great that everybody can come to a meeting of the minds and be able to work forward and be mature enough to work forward."

As far as the band's former vocalist Rob Dukes is considered, the singer was very thankful for spending nine years in the Exodus fold, but also stressed that he was fired during a 20-second phone call.

"I haven't spoken with anyone but [drummer] Tom [Hunting]," Dukes said. "Tom called me ... He called me and said, 'We're gonna go on with a different singer. We're gonna be going with Zet.' And that was it. It was about a 20-second phone call. And that was really all I got. That's it."

Gary Holt has since denied Rob's claims, saying that "20 seconds was not all this involved" and describing the situation as "the most difficult decision of our lives, one the entire band made." When asked to comment on the matter, Souza refrained from giving any comments.
