EXODUS has announced “Persona Non Grata” as the title of its long-awaited new album, slated to drop in the summer of 2021 via Nuclear Blast Records.
The San Francisco Bay Area thrashers’ next disc 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.
“Persona Non Grata” was recorded at a studio in Lake Almanor, California and was engineered by Steve Lagudi and EXODUS. It was produced by EXODUS and it is currently being mixed by Andy Sneap.
EXODUS guitarist Gary Holt shared the album title in an Instagram post, writing in an accompanying caption: “Early indications are this monster sounds fucking sick! Doing some spot vocal stuff tomorrow with @zetrodus and then tracking is DONE. Gonna be a long wait until the release of this beast on @nuclearblastrecords”.
