Former Exodus frontman Rob Dukes has admitted he is “bummed” at being fired and replaced by Steve Souza.
The band made the announcement over the weekend and admitted they needed a change and Dukes did not fit in with the new style they wanted to embrace.
Speaking to Blabbermouth Dukes said:
“I was just a regular guy – a fan – and I got the chance to front a legendary band with no prior experience of being a singer. I had no idea what I was doing; I made it up as I was going along.
“It was a great chapter in my life. I’m bummed it ended with them, but I have another band, Generation Kill. So I’ll concentrate on that right now.”
Souza, who is now on his third stint with the band, will begin studio work tomorrow. “The small sampling I have of him on the new songs is fucking amazing,” reports guitarist Gary Holt. “His best shit ever is coming – it’s going to kill.”
Souza will front the band for their appearance at the Bang Your Head festival in Germany next month.
