Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

San Francisco Bay Area thrashers EXODUS have released the official music video for the song “The Fires Of Division”. The clip, directed by Jim Louvau and Tony Aguilera, can be seen below. The track is taken from EXODUS‘s latest album, “Persona Non Grata”, which came out in November via Nuclear Blast Records.

EXODUS guitarist Gary Holt states: “Time for our next video. This one is for ‘The Fires Of Division’ and it actually has the band in it! This video was super fun to make, as it was the first time the band had gathered together in some time!”

“Persona Non Grata” is the follow-up to 2014’s “Blood In Blood Out”, which was the San Francisco Bay Area thrashers’ first release since the departure of the group’s lead singer of nine years, Rob Dukes, and the return of Steve “Zetro” Souza, who previously fronted EXODUS from 1986 to 1993 and from 2002 to 2004.

“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 was mixed by Andy Sneap. For the third time in the band’s history, they returned to Swedish artist Pär Olofsson to create the album artwork.

Last July, EXODUS drummer Tom Hunting underwent a successful total gastrectomy in his battle with squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the stomach. He rejoined his band-mates on stage on October 7 at the Aftershock festival in Sacramento, California. EXODUS tapped John Tempesta to play drums for the band at Psycho Las Vegas in Las Vegas, Nevada in August and at Full Terror Assault in Cave In Rock, Illinois in September while Hunting was recovering from surgery. 

A GoFundMe campaign to help Hunting with medical expenses had previously raised more than $114,000 — including $5,000 from Tom‘s former EXODUS band-mate, current METALLICA guitarist Kirk Hammett, and $2,500 from MACHINE HEAD founder and front-man Rob Flynn.
