JUDAS PRIEST On Track To Sell 70,000 Copies Of New Album In First Week

JUDAS PRIEST are on track to sell about 70,000 copies of their new album, "Angel of Retribution", in the U.S. in its first week of release, according to Hits Daily Double. PRIEST are reportedly seeing significant sales from their releases in the DualDisc configuration, with some retailers reporting that the DualDisc is outselling the standard CD release.

DualDiscs are a new entertainment product which combines music, film and video on a single, two-sided disc. The first side of every DualDisc contains a full-length audio album while the DVD side features a wide range of exclusive content such as the same album in enhanced sound (such as 5.1 Surround Sound or enhanced LPCM stereo), music videos, interviews, photo galleries, web links, concert footage, lyrics and more. DualDiscs play on existing CD and DVD hardware devices such as DVD players, car stereos, PCs, game consoles and CD players.

The DVD side of JUDAS PRIEST's "Angel of Retribution" DualDisc features a 30-minute documentary on the reuniting of the band as well as classic JUDAS PRIEST tracks recorded live in Spain in June 2004, including "Breaking the Law", "Diamonds and Rust", "Helion/Electric Eye", "Touch of Evil", "Metal Gods", "Hell Bent for Leather" and "Living After Midnight".
