Exodus Set November Release For 11th Studio LP 'Persona Non Grata', Share First Single

Wednesday, 25 August 2021 Written by Jon Stickler

Exodus have shared details of their first new album in seven years.

The long-awaited follow-up to 2014's 'Blood In, Blood Out' is called 'Persona Non Grata' and will arrive on November 19 via Nuclear Blast Records.

Recorded at a studio in Lake Almanor, California, and co-engineered by the band with Steve Lagudi, all 12 tracks were produced by Exodus with Andy Sneap mixing. For the third time, they reunited with Swedish artist Pär Olofsson for the cover artwork.

The news comes accompanied by the record's blistering first single, The Beatings Will Continue (Until Morale Improves), which arrives with a video currently only available to watch on YouTube due to being age restricted.

Hammering their thrash legends status home in just over three minutes, the track is dominated by guitarist Gary Holt's relentless battery of riffage and punishing heavy groove. Its lyrics, meanwhile, follow the theme of the LP's title, which translates to people who are "unwelcome" or "unacceptable", dealing a scathing attack on riot police that beat people into submission. 

'Persona Non Grata' tracklist:

1. Persona Non Grata
2. R.E.M.F.
3. Slipping Into Madness
4. Elitist
5. Prescribing Horror
6. The Beatings Will Continue (Until Morale Improves)
7. The Years of Death and Dying
8. Clickbait
9. Cosa Del Pantano
10. Lunatic-Liar-Lord
11. The Fires of Division
12. Antiseed
