During a recent interview with Animals Australia Unleashed, vocalist Steve “Zetro” Souza of San Francisco Bay Area metallers EXODUS has some sound advice for any one looking to get a pet. Check out the clip below.

Animals Australia Unleashed was created in response to an obvious need. Our planet is in a state of crisis. At a time when over 50 billion animals are imprisoned in the miserable conditions of factory farms; global warming is taking an ever greater toll; and an estimated three species become extinct every hour of every day, it’s clear that this world desperately needs a generation who cares about its future. By teaming up with artists and celebrities who young people most admire, Unleashed empowers young people with the knowledge that their everyday choices really can change the world!

As KISSCHASY frontman and Unleashed ambassador Darren Cordeux said: “Unleashedhas a clear and simple message: each of us has the power to make a difference. We’re working to inspire the next generation to heal the planet and make animal cruelty a thing of the past.”

The first of its kind in Australia, Unleashed has already won the support of international superstars Serj Tankian (SYSTEM OF A DOWN), ANTI-FLAG, LESS THAN JAKE,SILVERSTEIN, José González, as well as homegrown heroes including THE VERONICASand KISSCHASY, with band interviews and testimonials online at
