Exodus performed last night in in New Kensington, PA at Perserving Underground and fans in attendance noticed that Exodus bassist Jack Gibson was not in the line up and that Darkest Hour's Mike Schleibaum was.

Today, Exodus frontman Gary Holt took to his instagram to inform questioning fans of the situation. Gibson left the tour early to attend to a personal family emergency. Holt also would clarify that he will sit out the remaining show scheduled for 2023, but made a point to say that there is no replacing Gibson. 

Holt's message read as followed:

In case people were wondering where our brother Jack Gibson was last night, he had to leave the tour for a family emergency, family first. We have his back all ways and always. So last night as well as the remaining three shows the low end is being handled by our brother @theriffdojo , who has been studying like a madman these last few days to learn the set. He did a killer job last night and it'll be heavy as fuck , like always. There's no replacing Jack, he's one of one. But for the remainder he is where he needs to be. Our thoughts and hearts are with our brother now🤘🏻
Send your positive vibes his way❤️
