Exodus guitarist Gary Holt has announced via his Instagram that he's given up alcohol. Holt said his new sobriety comes from a year of reflection over the pandemic, as well as years of partying.
"Day one for me, here I go. This last year has been one in which I’ve come to realize the drinking needs to go. Been a long party for me but it doesn’t feel like a party anymore. I’m not perfect and the booze has crept up on me. Here’s to feeling clear and lucid from here on out🤘🏻"
Exodus will release their new album Persona Non Grata this November. The band will also play a benefit show on July 17 at One The Y in Sacramento, CA for drummer Tom Hunting, who was recently diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma.
