“As a band, we all had to make a very difficult choice to part ways with Rob Dukes. We have nothing but love and admiration for him and the deepest gratitude for the hard work he has put in and the great work on some killer records. But at this time, Tom, Lee, Jack and myself thought a change was necessary and the unanimous choice going forward was to welcome back Steve Souza to the fold!”
Zetro then went on to say the following, “I spent a great part of my life with Exodus. That blood flows through me, even not being in the band for the past 10 years, you can’t erase that chemistry. I’m very excited!”
Zetro served as the lead singer of Exodus from 1986 to 1992, and again from 2002 to 2004. He appeared on five albums with the band, including their 1989 classic Fabulous Disaster and 2004 comeback Tempo of the Damned.
A new album from Exodus, which will be their first since 2010′s Exhibit B: The Human Condition, is expected to be released later this year. It is not known, however, if Zetro will be involved in the recording.
