Exodus have announced a major lineup change. The band is parting ways with vocalist Rob Dukes and welcoming back its classic frontman Steve 'Zetro' Souza.
Dukes replaced Souza in 2005, and the band released three new studio albums with Dukes as their frontman.
In a statement, Exodus guitarist Gary Holt says, "As a band, we all had to make a very difficult choice to part ways with Rob Dukes. We have nothing but love and admiration for him and the deepest gratitude for the hard work he has put in and the great work on some killer records. But at this time, Tom, Lee, Jack and myself thought a change was necessary and the unanimous choice going forward was to welcome back Steve Souza to the fold!"
Souza adds, "I spent a great part of my life with Exodus, that blood flows through me, even not being in the band for the past 10 years, you can’t erase that chemistry. I'm very excited!"
