Exodus Recruit The Black Dahlia Murder’s Brandon Ellis To Fill-In For Lee Altus On European Tour


Bay Area thrash institution Exodus have announced that their guitarist Lee Altus will be sitting out the group’s upcoming European tour. In his place, they have enlisted Brandon Ellis of The Black Dahlia Murder fame. A statement was issued on the matter by Exodus earlier today (June 22nd) and can be found below:

Exodus regretfully announce that Lee Altus will not be joining us on our upcoming European tour. Family concerns dictate he remain close to home and being so far away from home is not possible. Exodus stand strong with Lee and will destroy in his behalf, and he will rejoin us for the upcoming tours such as the fall leg of The Bay Strikes Back.

We stand behind our brother in everything and he will be back! Joining us on this trek is none other than Brandon Ellis of The Black Dahlia Murder, so let’s welcome him like one of the Exodus family!

Brandon is one of the sickest guitarists alive and he is going to kill it for certain! See you soon in Europe and the UK! Brandon adds, “I am beyond grateful for the opportunity to get on stage with the legendary dudes of Exodus and crush some open air fests and clubs this July and August. I wish Lee the best and will cover his stage right post with honor and respect!”
