The Classic Struggle Drummer Injured, Cancel Tour

The Classic Struggle have announced that they will not tour with Exodus/Full Blown Chaos as planned. Several weeks ago their friend and drummer Tyler Solnosky suffered a severe head injury and has been confined to a hospital bed. Tyler is showing signs of recovery, but will remain in the hospital for an indefinite amount of time.

Not unlike most touring bands, Tyler is without medical insurance and is facing exorbitant medical expenses. The band has set up a PayPal account to collect donations. Please send PayPal donations to theclassicstruggle@yahoo.com. The band is also planning a series of benefit shows. More info will be released soon.

States the band: "We would like to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers while Tyler recovers. Sorry about the shows and tour we have to cancel, but it wouldn't be right to leave him right now. Family comes first. We won't be gone for too long. Stay metal."

Exodus Announce New Guitarist Lee Altus

After recently confirming Rick Hunolt's departure from Exodus, guitarist Gary Holt has posted the following message on the Exodus forum:

"I'd like to take a moment to welcome to Exodus our newest member, Lee Altus. Lee has been a great friend of mine for many years and is also one of the greatest guitarist I've had the pleasure of knowing. He was not only the best guy for this job, he was the only one. No one else was ever considered. His leads are totally ripping on the new album and I am looking very much forward to working with him on new music soon. He is a rhythm crusher as well as a shred machine so things are going to be heavy as hell! We start rehearsals Wednesday and I can't wait. My moving is done and I am chomping at the bit to get the show on the road."

Exodus have set "Shovel Headed Kill Machine" as the title of their upcoming album, due to be released on October 4th.
