Bay Area thrash progenitors EXODUS will return to touring in support of 2007's The Atrocity Exhibition: Exhibit A with Germany's Kreator, Austria's Belphegor, and California's Warbringer.
EXODUS guitarist/songwriter Gary Holt checks in from his home in Northern California with the following:
"If you can believe it, we've NEVER toured with Kreator even though Mille and I go WAY back. We've played occasional festivals together and played 5 shows back in '97 on Summer Metal Meeting with them. We've always had a LOT of fun with them, so I'm looking forward to spending time with old friends Kreator, new friends Warbringer, and soon-to-be-good-friends Belphegor.
We're pretty damned happy to be playing nine shows in Canada because Canadian cities tend to get overlooked. The last time we were in Winnipeg, Calgary, and another city which I can't remember right now, those shows were full of 17-year-olds and they went insane. Those dates were the best on that tour!"
Tickets for this tour are on sale now exclusively through EnterTheVault.com through October 31st. As of November 1st, tickets go on sale through all normal ticketing outlets.
EXODUS' next album, The Atrocity Exhibition: Exhibit B is due out by Summer 2009.
