Exodus parts ways with frontman Rob Dukes
According to Blabbermouth, San Francisco Bay Area thrash legends Exodus have parted ways with vocalist Rob Dukes. Details have yet to be revealed, but an official statement is "expected very soon." Dukes has been singing for Exodus since 2005. UPDATE: Exodus guitarist Gary Holt has subsequently revealed that former vocalist Steve Souza has now rejoined the band. Here's what Holt had to say:
"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 [Hunting, drums], Lee [Altus, guitar], Jack [Gibson, bass] and myself thought a change was necessary and the unanimous choice going forward was to welcome back Steve Souza to the fold!"
