Judas Priest Announces Additional ‘Redeemer of Souls’ U.S. Tour Dates [Video]
Judas Priest's latest album 'Redeemer of Souls' was released last week to positive accolades. In Loudwire's review, we describe it as "a strong release from a band that created some of metal’s greatest and most timeless works" and that "must-hear tracks like ‘Halls of Valhalla’ and ‘Sword of Damocles’ can hang with Priest’s greatest songs."
The band's newest addition, guitarist Richie Faulker, spoke with 'Loudwire Nights' host Full Metal Jackie about the upcoming tour, saying, "With the tour coming up in the fall for ‘Redeemer of Souls,’ we can’t wait to get out there again and put these new songs out there to the metal fraternity. Hopefully in twenty, thirty years they’ll still be out there and as big as ‘Another Thing Coming’ or anything like that."
Faulker continues, "When we write these songs and they take shape in the studio, and again, they might still be the skeleton of the song but they’re instantly recognizable as, oh my god we’ve got to play these songs live. We can’t wait to play ‘March of the Damned.’ Priest is a live band, when we write these songs it’s instant that we have to play them live so we’re really excited to get out into the U.S. and beyond."
Fan pre-sales for the fall tour and merchandise packages are available at this location.
