Dukes, who fronted EXODUS for nine years, performed with the band during its July 8 concert in San Francisco, California. He sang several songs with the group on the second of EXODUS‘s two-night stint at The Chapel in what marked the band’s first headlining Bay Area club shows since late 2013.
Dukes joined EXODUS in January 2005 and appeared on four of the band’s studio albums — “Shovel Headed Kill Machine” (2005), “The Atrocity Exhibition… Exhibit A” (2007), “Let There Be Blood” (2008, a re-recording of EXODUS‘ classic 1985 LP, “Bonded By Blood”) and “Exhibit B: The Human Condition” (2010).
EXODUS in June 2014 announced the departure of Dukes and the return of Steve “Zetro” Souza, who previously fronted EXODUS from 1986 to 1993 and from 2002 to 2004.
