EXODUS and temporary SLAYER guitarist Gary Holt is featured in a new video interview conducted by The Age Of Metal on March 24th in Tempe, AZ. Check it out below:
Exodus is currently on the Metal Alliance Tour with ANTHRAX, HIGH ON FIRE, MUNICIPAL WASTE, and HOLY GRAIL. The band recently announced several headlining shows to commence following the band's March/April run; a full list of confirmed Metal Alliance Tour and Exodus headlining off-dates can be seen below.
Due to the Mickey Mouse executives, Exodus will be forced to miss the April 12th date of the Metal Alliance Tour. An official statement from the band reads:
"Because Disney has decided that Exodus is TOO METAL for them, we will NOT be playing the Lake Buena Vista HOB show in Florida, but the fine thrash maniacs in Tampa have invited us to rage at the Orpheum instead. Who's comin' out for a Lesson in Violence?"
Exodus is not the first metal band to feel the wrath of the corporate powers behind Walt Disney Properties; MACHINE HEAD has been banned from the House Of Blues venues in Anaheim and Orlando (both of which are situated on Disney property). "Violent imagery", "inflammatory lyrics" and most appallingly "undesirable fans" were cited as the reason.
