Exodus guitarist Gary Holt has posted this message on the band's official website regarding rumors going around about the replacement for recently departed vocalist Steve "Zetro" Souza:

I just wanted to clear up rumours about who is going to be our next singer. The answer to that is I do not know. There is a lot of speculation that we've already selected John Miller for the job and that is not true. While he will have every opportunity to secure the gig , as of right now he is filling in for us in South America, and in doing so is doing us a huge favor by helping us out when we were in a bind.

We will be holding auditions in the near future but in the meantime I am going to continue writing songs for the next record. Some people have questioned my intentions, saying that I am looking to cash in but finding some sort of flavor of the month or something. Come on. Be real. I have no delusions about suddenly selling five hundred thousand records merely by switching vocalist. I live in the real world folks, and I am very content if I can pay my bills and buy the occasional knife or two doing what I love and still take care of me and my own.

But anyway, we will be putting out contact info soon about auditions, so anyone interested stay tuned!

Holt has also sent this message to the band's South American fans, assuring them that Exodus will complete their touring commitments:

Just want to ease any concerns our fans in South America might have about our upcoming shows. All shows are confirmed and are a go! We will be playing our full set, all the classics and the new ones as well. I guarantee we will not disappoint! We are ready, willing and able my friends, and we will crush! I have been looking forward to returning to South America for far too long to let anything stand in the way! It has always felt like a second home to me and I wouldn't miss it for the world! See you all there!

Gary.
