Exodus are very pleased to announce they will be returning to UK soil in June for three performances.

The Bay Area thrash titans will be playing at Brighton's Concorde 2 on 7th June and Southend's Chinnery's on 8th June.

These two performances will precede their highly anticipated appearance at Download Festival on Friday 9th June where they will be headlining The Dogtooth Stage.

Frontman Steve 'Zetro' Souza said on the announcement:

"Exodus are very excited about returning to the UK, especially for the shows in Brighton and Southend. Early last year we did an extensive tour of the UK, and our shows in Brighton and Southend were absolutely bonkers!! See you all in the pit in June."

Dates are:

7th June: Brighton, Concorde 2
8th June: Southend, Chinnerys
9th June: Donington, Download Festival

Exodus released their latest studio album, 'Blood In Blood Out# in 2014. This was their tenth full-length album and it proved that Holt, Hunting, Gibson, Altus, and Souza still have the fortitude, chops, and talent to deliver top-notch, ballad-free tunes that stand out without straying from their core aesthetic.

The title of the album encapsulates Holt's approach to Exodus:

"When I was working on the record, I was sitting around watching TV series' like 'Gangland' and all these locked-up prison reality shows and I thought, 'Yeah, that's like Exodus'. It's a brotherhood. You bleed to get in, you bleed to get out.

"I've been doing this kind of music since I was a teenager and I'll be doing it 'til I can't physically do it anymore. It was always my grand vision to do a two-part Rush/King Crimson epic of thrash Metal, and we did it. I kind of got that out of my system, so this time I wanted everything to sound more natural, shorter, and to the point. Get in and get out. So this one is a little more to the roots.

"Maybe some of that old 'Bonded By Blood' influence came out and it's heavy as fuck, but that's the way we like it."

MONSTERS OF ROCK IN FULL FLIGHT SURE TO BECOME FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

monsters of rock

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
