Congratulations to Brandon Ellis!

Brand Ellis

Exodus guitarist Lee Altus will sit out the band's European tour due to "family concerns." Filling in for Altus is the incredibly-capable Brandon Ellis of The Black Dahlia Murder. Of course we wish Altus and his family all the best in whatever they're dealing with, and offer a huge congratulations to Ellis for the opportunity! Exodus notes that Altus will return to the group in time for their fall leg of The Bay Strikes Back with Testament and Death Angel.

"Exodus regretfully announce that Lee Altus will not be joining us on our upcoming European tour," said the band in a statement. "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!"

"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," added Ellis. "I wish Lee the best and will cover his stage right post with honor and respect!"
