(Metal Hammer) Exodus drummer Tom Hunting says the band are "basically travelling t-shirt salesmen" as record sales no longer pay the bills. Hunting says that like most bands, Exodus don't sell enough physical records to make a decent living and that they will always have to tour extensively.

Hunting tells From Hero To Zero: "A lot of bands, aside from Metallica or Beyonce or people who come out of the gate selling 800,000 copies the first day, we have to tour.

"We're kind of, basically, travelling t-shirt salesmen. And it's okay, because it takes us to amazing places in the world and we love seeing other cultures and having other foods and seeing how the rest of the world lives.

"I think it's the best education you can get in your life, for sure. It takes away any illusions or ignorances about the way the rest of the world gets on and lives. So it's fine." Read more here.
