judaspriest640 Ever since it was announced that metal icons Judas Priest would be unleashing their 17th studio album overall, Redeemer of Souls (on July 8th), 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

“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.” –-Mike Mettler, 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.

    Not one peep about the Kiss/Def Leppard tour on this site……. I guess when Ace drops his 34,000 unit pilie of steaming curls we’ll get Kiss news. They were incredible in Denver.

      Really? Well you just made the first post. So if people want to chime in they can. I don’t control what people post about and apparently a Kiss/Def Lep shed tour is not generating anything news worth 3 dates in. Should I just make shit up like so many others do? The only comments I have seen are people wondering why the set is so short and why they are co headlining. But if that gets posted then I’m the hater again right? Amazing!

    Why couldn’t they take Accept or Overkill out with them? A lot of people like Steel Panther and that’s cool. It’s all about fun and I get it. But what that band does is deliberately parodying all the dumb cliches about 80’s metal bands, not taking this music seriously. I love the band Kyng. Why not a Judas Priest, Accept, Kyng triple bill? How awesome would that be? Kyng are one of best, if not THE best, new band to come along in quite a while and it’d be good for not just them but ALL of the metal community if they got the exposure associated with opening for Priest.
