EXODUS has set Persona Non Grata as the title of its long-awaited new album, due in the summer of 2021 via Nuclear Blast Records.
EXODUS guitarist Gary Holt wrote in an Instagram post: ““So the title of the new record is out! The next EXODUS record is titled Persona Non Grata and will be our summer 2021! And I LOVE the studios name here in Decibel, ‘The garage next to Tom Hunting’a house’! Haha!
“Engineered by Steve Lagudi, produced by us, being mixed by Andy Sneap as we speak . Early indications are this monster sounds f*cking sick! Doing some spot vocal stuff tomorrow with Zetro and then tracking is DONE. Gonna be a long wait until the release of this beast .”
The album will be the follow-up to 2014’s Blood In Blood Out, which was their first release since the departure of the group’s lead singer of nine years, Rob Dukes, and the return of Steve “Zetro” Souza, who previously fronted EXODUS from 1986 to 1993 and from 2002 to 2004.
