31 years since the release of debut album “Bonded by Blood” and Bay Area legends Exodus hit the road with a European and UK tour to mark the occasion.
Carrying Lost Society and Striker in tow, they paid a visit to The Underworld in London (admittedly one of their favourite spots to play, according to frontman Steve “Zetro”) for what was to be a consistently crazy night of crowdsurfing and moshing for all to enjoy.
“For our “Too Late” music video we wanted to go for something simpler and get a really kick ass performance video, as we haven’t really done one yet that is purely us rocking out on a big stage. I think everyone grew up with that idea of the huge performance video from the 80’s with the huge light rigs and massive stages. Our next step after this video is obviously insane pyro and of course some sort of swing rig that allows us fly around the stage like Bon Jovi or Van Halen, but unfortunately we won’t have the budget for all that hairspray and glitter!” – Striker guitarist Tim Brown.
The band; Dan Clearly (vocals) Tim Brown (lead/rhythm guitars) William Wallace (bass) Adam Brown (drums) recorded the album themselves with the help of Randy Black (who filled in on drums while Adam was away…) and mixing genius Frederik Nordstrom (Bring Me The Horizon, In Flames, Opeth) giving them not only the time and space needed but the freedom to set up the release direct to fans worldwide.
“We’re so excited about having our music, our ideas, and our future in our own hands – ushering in a new era for the band of decisive action, dedication and forward thinking. Live life by one rule: No Limits!” – Tim Brown
STRIKER will be hitting the road with Primal Fear across Europe in February 2016.
