June 20 — Veteran thrash metal outfit Exodus has a new label home.
The band announced this week, it has signed a new record deal with Napalm Records. Specific details, such as the term length for the new contract and how many albums the band would release through the label were not announced in the press release announcing the new agreement.

Guitarist Gary Holt said the band was happy about joining Napalm Records’ artist roster.
Exodus are extremely excited to announce that we are joining the family at Napalm Records!,” Holt said. “It’s time for a new chapter for the band, and we are stoked to be joining the label and are starting to put our foot on the gas and get ourselves prepared for the next record! They convinced us with their passion and love for the band, and where we will be going in the future, we couldn’t say no.”
Holt added, “It’s time to push even further and not only continue to run right over people with our brand of thrash, it’s time to increase the body count! Here’s to new beginnings with Napalm Records!”
