Rob Dukes, as you know, is no longer the singer for Exodus. Over the weekend, the band revealed Steve “Zetro” Souza would be returning to the fold, ending Dukes’ nine-year run with the thrash legends.
Dukes has issued a statement to Blabbermouth, saying, “I’m grateful for the last nine years. I’ve had the experience of touring the world playing music. I was just a regular guy, a fan, and I got the chance to front a legendary band while [having had] no prior experience of being a singer. I had no idea what I was doing and made it up as I was going along. I had the experience of making records. It was a great chapter of my life.”
“I’m bummed it ended with [Exodus], but I have another band, Generation Kill. So I will concentrate on that right now and continue to build hotrods and build a car to race in the Baja 1000. I will be riding my motorcycle all over this beautiful country every chance I get. That’s the next chapter of my life.”
Meanwhile, word has it that Zetro will be hitting the studio this week to start tracking vocals for Exodus’ next LP.
Wednesday, he will hit the recording studio to sing his pipes out.
Says Gary Holt:
“His best shit ever is coming. Be prepared, it’s going to kill.”
Dukes, by the way, learned he was out of Exodus while on his honeymoon.
Timing, not Exodus’ strong suit.
