Exodus is sharing a sample of the thrash metal vets' new album Blood In, Blood Out.

The record is due out in full October 14th, and will mark the band's first since vocalist Rob Dukes was fired this summer and replaced by former member Steve Souza.  But Exodus guitarist Gary Holt tells Billboard the title track from Blood In, Blood Out has nothing to do with the lineup shuffle.  

Holt says a lot of people have been asking that question.  And even though he admits it would be convenient to say the title and lyrics are all about Dukes, Holt explains that they wrote the track before the singer's departure.
