Official Judas Priest News


Monday, July 14, 2014

Ever since it was announced that metal icons Judas Priest would be unleashing their 17th studio album overall, 'Redeemer of Souls' (on July 8, 2014), their legion of fans have been wondering if the band would be launching a supporting tour. And the answer is a resounding YES - Priest will be touring the US in the fall, with dates running throughout October and for most of November. Steel Panther will be "special guests" for all the dates.

Already, 'Redeemer of Souls' is creating a deafening pre-release buzz, largely due to overwhelmingly positive reviews:

"The word 'epic' is thrown around too often in the world of music, but Judas Priest's new album 'Redeemer of Souls' is, in fact, truly epic. From Rob Halford's powerful vocals to Glenn Tipton and Richie Faulkner's monster riffs and soaring guitar solos, 'Redeemer of Souls' takes listeners on a fantastical metal journey from beginning to end." —Loudwire/Townsquare Media

"Galloping riffs, dueling solos and Rob Halford's battle shrieks make it classic Priest at its metal core." --Rolling Stone Magazine [review of "Redeemer of Souls" single]

"The gods of metal return with all cylinders firing on 'Redeemer of Souls,' a juggernaut of an album that features raw, unleashed power as only the mighty Priest can deliver. Valhalla, they are coming — and coming HARD." --Sound & Vision Magazine

Comprised of Rob Halford (vocals), Glenn Tipton (guitar), Richie Faulkner (guitar), Ian Hill (bass), and Scott Travis (drums), Judas Priest is responsible for some of heavy metal's all-time classic songs ("Living After Midnight," "Breaking the Law," "You've Got Another Thing Coming," etc.) and albums ('British Steel,' 'Screaming for Vengeance,' 'Painkiller,' etc.).

And come the fall, the mighty Priest will be ferociously rocking the US once more - with more dates to follow shortly.
