Exodus
Thrash metal forefathers Exodus have revealed details regarding their highly anticipated new album, which marks the return of original vocalist Steve “Zetro” Sousa. The album is titled Blood In Blood Out, and it is slated for an Oct. 14 release date on Nuclear Blast.

The artwork you see above was done by the imitable Par Olofsson, who previously worked with the band on the Bonded By Blood re-recording Let There Be Blood. As you can see, it’s awesome; no surprise, considering Olofsson’s track record. Of the artwork, guitarist and founding Exodus member Gary Holt had this to say:

“The concept came from Par Olofsson – I fed him the title and he immediately came up with the final concept, and it’s perfect! One of my favorite covers we’ve ever done and it fits the title and theme to a T!”

I’ve been looking forward to a new Exodus record for quite some time now, so this news has me all giddy, like a schoolgirl. The band will be doing some heavy touring beginning in August in support of Blood In Blood Out, beginning with a trek through South America and then making their way up to the states for the second leg of their tour with Suicidal Tendencies and Slayer. Dates for both outings can be found below.
