EXODUS: New Album Pushed Back To May

Leave a comment

Nuclear Blast Records has pushed back the European release date of “Exhibit B: The Human Condition”, the ninth studio album from San Francisco Bay Area thrash metal veterans EXODUS, to May 7 from the previously announced April 23. The CD was helmed by acclaimed British producer Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, ARCH ENEMY, KREATOR).

A brand new song, entitled “Good Riddance”, which will appear on the forthcoming CD, was premiered during an EXODUS live web stream on December 19, 2009.

In a recent interview with Way Too Loud!, EXODUS bassist Jack Gibson stated about the upcoming CD, “There’s a couple [of songs] that are long, and a couple that are shorter, too. Song kind of write themselves. Anyone who creates music or art, and even people who write stories — it takes on its own life. If it’s an epic tune, it’s a crime to cut it short thinking it could be on the radio or whatever. Especially in today’s day and age, radio and video don’t mean shit. Radio has never meant anything to a band like us. Maybe now that there’s XM satellite radio with real metal stations. We really wouldn’t unwrite a song so it could be on the radio. The songs are just the way they come out. The new album has a couple short sweet ones, and I think one of ‘em is 10 fucking minutes long! . . . Lyrically, it has to do with the depravity of man, how fucked up things have gotten, and how perverted in the dark corners of everything from religion to politics.”

“Shovel Headed Tour Machine: Live At Wacken & Other Assorted Atrocities”, EXODUS’ new DVD (2 DVDs + bonus audio CD) was released in North America on January 12.

EXODUS has just completed the Tyrants Of Evil tour with ARCH ENEMY, ARSIS, and MUTINY WITHIN.

New Live Weakerthans Record Coming Soon!

The Weakerthans new DVD-CD “Live at the Burton Cummings Theater,” set for release on March 23, offers a jubilant testament to the Winnipeg band’s considerable creative powers as both literary minded songwriters and charismatic live performers. The live DVD was recorded in April of 2009 as the band toured in support of their album “Reunion Tour” with an expanded line-up featuring trumpet, violin and female vocals, playing songs from all four acclaimed releases in front of an adoring and enthusiastic hometown crowd. Even the DVD-CD’s artwork is a painting by bassist Greg Smith, one of several pieces inspired while on the April tour. From the songs to the live performance to the visual presentation, all in all, the DVD-CD captures moments in time. A musical experience shared by a band and thier fans.
