EXODUS To Go Ahead With Live Dates, Zetro Steps Back In
Despite the recent passing of frontman Paul Baloff, San Francisco Bay Area thrashers EXODUS will attempt to perform as many of the already-scheduled live dates with Steve "Zetro" Souza, the singer who replaced Baloff after the monumental Bonded By Blood CD (1985), according to the group's label Century Media Records and manager Michael Murphy. It is presently understood—albeit not officially confirmed—that most of the following dates are going ahead as scheduled as part of "an ongoing memorial for Paul" (all subject to change, obviously):
Feb. 08 – Anaheim, CA @ The Shack
Feb. 09 - Anaheim, CA @ The Shack
Mar. 13 – Portland, OR @ Satyricon
Mar. 14 – Tacoma, WA @ The Norva
Mar. 15 – Ballard/Seattle, WA @ Ballard Firehouse
Mar. 16 – Everett, WA @ Jimmy Z's
Mar. 23 – Whittier, CA @ Hellfest
Apr. 05-06 – Asbury Park, NJ @ Metal Meltdown IV
We will have more information on this as soon as it becomes available.
