EXODUS Won't Be Able To Jam At MARYLAND DEATHFEST, Find Out Why!
It has been announced by the organizers of the 2013 MARYLAND DEATHFEST that EXODUS have pulled out of the fest due to a "variety of personal issues and matters with one of the members". SACRED REICH will be replacing the Bay Area thrashers. The event is scheduled to take place on May 23-26 in Baltimore, Maryland. Full festival details HERE!
While no further details have been revealed by the band or the organizers of the fest, we do know that EXODUS frontman Rob Dukes has been struggling with back issues since November of 2012 and might need surgery as a result. If you look at the bands touring agenda HERE, they have almost a three month gap between their concert in Guadalajara, Mexico (5/19) and the first date of their European tour date in Gavle, Sweden (8/9). So it would make sense for Dukes to take care of his health during that gap, since without Dukes being in top form his performance will deteriorate.

Apr. 04 - First Avenue - Minneapolis, MN
