Gary Holt Says Exodus Have “A Massive Fucking Catalog Of Riffs And Songs” For Next Album

During a recent episode of Loudwire‘s “Gear Factor”, Gary Holt offered an update on the new Exodus album. He said the following:

“I’ve been writing new Exodus material for like months now, close to a year now and we’ve got a massive fucking catalog of riffs and songs. Tom Hunting and I are just kind of getting together when I’m home and working on new stuff. We’re taking our time. We’re not in any hurry. We’re going to make sure it’s a fucking earthshaking moment when the album’s due.”


Exodus Planning To Celebrate Their 40th Anniversary With A San Francisco Residency

It looks like Exodus will be celebrating their 40th anniversary with a residency in their hometown of San Francisco. Steve “Zetro” Souza told Hungary’s Impact metal channel the following about that:

“I think that we’re gonna do something in San Francisco next year; we’re gonna do a residency there, back at home, for 40 years. We’re talking about it right now. Maybe three or four nights at a certain place. We played there last year two nights, called The Chapel. Probably bring old members up — that sort of thing — and see what happens. It’s in the talks; [it’s] definitely in the works right now.”

“We go way back with Will and Dave, the creators of Mr. Pickles. They come from Richmond, VA as well and even shot our first music video for ‘Unleash the Bastards’. We’ve remained good friends throughout all our endeavors and when they asked us to be part of this tour there was no hesitation on our part.

The icing on the cake was when Exodus came on board. We’re no stranger to touring with these maniacs and we’ve shared some wild times on the road over the years (at least from what I can remember!)
