Exhorder have premiered a lyric video for their new song “Hallowed Sound.” This track is from the band’s new album “Mourn The Southern Skies,” which will be released on September 20. Vinnie LaBella commented:

“‘Hallowed Sound‘ is one that keeps in the tradition of ‘The Law‘ era with some new twists and turns. Mid-tempo/slow, heavy grooves with a mean yet soulful Kyle Thomas singing about our beloved NOLA music history, and future!”

Exhorder Premiere “My Time” Music Video, Reveal Details For New Album “Mourn The Southern Skies”

Exhorder have premiered a new video for their new song “My Time.” This track is from the band’s new album “Mourn The Southern Skies,” which will be released on September 20. That effort will be their first in 27 years.

“Mourn The Southern Skies” Track Listing:

01. “My Time”
02. “Asunder”
03. “Hallowed Sounds”
04. “Beware The Wolf”
05. “Yesterday’s Bones”
06. “All She Wrote”
07. “Rumination”
08. “The Arms Of Man”
09. “Ripping Flesh”
10. “Mourn The Southern Skies”

Vinnie La Bella had the following to say about the group’s return:

“You can plot and scheme for years, even decades (as is in our case). You can work hard, keep grinding, bang the square peg in the round hole until it looks somewhat presentable. But sometimes you just need to let time tell you, it’s time.

Exhorder has its own soul. And it pokes me in the ribs ever so often as if to remind me, ‘Hey asshole, we ain’t done yet!’ Kyle and myself had a dream as teenagers. And as cliche as it may seem, we never woke up from it. Exhorder has always crept in and out of our lives. So no magic bullet or formula here.

It was only a simple matter of time before the right guys, the right songs, the right manager/label would finally come to the party. It’s been damn near 35 years since we first uttered the name, Exhorder. 27 years since our last record, and a whole lot of breaking up and making up in between. So why is this time different? Why start again at 50 years of age instead of retiring? Simple… because it’s finally, TIME!”

Exhorder Finish Recording New Album

Exhorder have officially finished the recording process for their new album. The effort will be the band’s first since 1992 and it will be released later this year via Nuclear Blast

Vinnie La Bella commented:

“27 years? Man, that’s a big number! A lot has transpired over the course of such an extended amount of time, and this record touches on it all. There is material on this record that is literally 27 years old along with material that was written just six months ago, and everything in between.

There are truly no words to express the emotions which are connected with this moment. And that’s pretty convenient because I prefer to do my talking in the ring/stage anyway. But the people who really made this what it is cannot go without mention: my incredible bandmates; Simon and crew at AISA Management; all at Nuclear Blast Records; and Duane Simoneaux at OCD Recording. Jens Bogren was an unquestionable genius! So honored to have him on this.

This is, without a doubt, for the first time in our career, the album we intended to give you. Production, sound, art, it’s all there, with no compromise! I’m eternally grateful for all who helped make it happen. And to all that have waited for it, prayed for it, begged for it, or even dreaded this moment, much love and I’ll see you in the ‘ring!'”

Exhorder Sign With Nuclear Blast Records

Exhorder have signed a new deal with Nuclear Blast Records and are planning to release a new album through the label. The effort will be the band’s first since 1992.

Vocalist Kyle Thomas commented:

“The excitement level of Exhorder being in contract negotiations once again is higher for us than we can express. Coming to an agreement with Nuclear Blast has inspired us to bring our writing to new heights. People still want to hear this band, as was evident in the reaction to our performances in 2018.

Nuclear Blast strongly wants to help facilitate this venture, and for that we are truly excited and grateful. I am looking forward to seeing what we can make happen together over the next few years. The roster at Nuclear Blast speaks for itself, as well as the presence of Monte Conner and Jaap Wagemaker on the team. Be on the lookout, because Exhorder is heading your way once again!”

Guitarist Vinnie LaBella added:

“What an incredible honor it is to be added to the Nuclear Blast family! We’ve had such a great year already, and now this! We are so proud and could not be in better company moving forward. We are excited for the future. We realize we turned in a couple of classics back in the day and it’s been 27 years since we released our last record. And while those past successes are notable, we feel in our hearts like this new record will be our first record, and we couldn’t have a better partner in NB to bring it to you. New management, New line up, new label, new record, new Exhorder!”

Anselmo & The Illegals), and Sasha Horn (Forbidden), played “Slaughter In The Vatican” in full during their first comeback show at St. Vitus Bar in Brooklyn, NY on February 9.

Exhorder Return, Announce February Shows

Exhorder have returned with a revamped lineup featuring founding members Vinnie LaBella and Kyle Thomas, along with Jason Viebrooks (Heathen), Marzi Montazeri (ex-Superjoint Ritual, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals), and Sasha Horn (Forbidden). The band will play “Slaughter In The Vatican” in full at St. Vitus Barbin Brooklyn, NY on February 9 and will then play “The Law” in full at the same venue the next night (February 10). They also have a February 12 show booked at Southport Hall in New Orleans, LA.

LaBella commented:

“Over our 30-year history, we have obviously had more than our fair share of struggles. Struggles that have broken us apart on several occasions. Whether those struggles were internal, external or both, no matter the situation, we always find are way back to one another. How? Why? It took me 30 years to realize it’s because the relationships run too deep, the songs are timeless, and the fans are ageless. It’s meant so much to us and so many others. And it’s for these reasons Exhorder can’t be broken, even by the hands that created it. Like it or not, love it or hate it, Exhorder is forever and it’s my duty, my honor and privilege to do it again!”

Thomas added:

“It would probably be best to never say never for the rest of my life, because I thought that this could not happen again. However, here we are one more time!

“I am extremely pumped to take the stage yet again with Exhorder to bring to life some of the most classic songs in thrash metal and hardcore history. We will put everything into it as always, doing our best to see to it that no one will ever walk away from an Exhorder show dissatisfied. We’re back!”
