Exodus has revealed the title for their long-awaited new album as "Persona Non Grata".
The San Francisco Bay Area thrashers' next album will be the follow-up to "Blood In Blood Out" they released in 2014, which was their first release since the group's lead singer of nine years, Rob Dukes left; and Steve "Zetro" Souza, who previously fronted Exodus from 1986 to 1993 and from 2002 to 2004, returned.
"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 the mixing is currently being done by Andy Sneap. The album is projected to be released in the summer of 2021.
Exodus guitarist Gary Holt shared the album title in an Instagram post, with the 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".
