JUDAS PRIEST members Rob Halford, Glenn Tipton and Richie Faulkner will sign copies of the band's new album, "Redeemer Of Souls", on Tuesday, July 8 at the Hard Rock Café in New York City at 6:30 p.m. Starting at 4 p.m. on July 8, be one of the first fans to purchase the album from FYE at the 43rd Street at Hard Rock TSQ and receive a wristband that will get you access to the signing. Please note, the band will only be signing copies of their new album.
"Redeemer Of Souls" will be released in North America on July 8 (pushed up a week from the originally announced July 15) via Epic Records. The CD's title track was made available for purchase via iTunes and other digital service providers on April 29.
Speaking to the "Trunk Nation" show, which airs on SiriusXM's Hair Nation, JUDAS PRIEST singer Rob Halford stated about "Redeemer Of Souls": "When we finished [the] 'Epitaph' [tour], we just got so buzzed from the fans and the reaction wherever we went. Just to put the 'Epitaph' tour together, which was we tried to put a song from every record into the show, and we were living in the life of JUDAS PRIEST, all those decades, in one show, night after night on the world trek, and I think that really did something to us internally; as musicians, it should do when you tour. So we realized that this next record really had to be really strong, full of energy, because it's relentless, the tracks are relentless. The energy that you feel off 'Redeemer Of Souls' is replicated in that direction time and time and time again."
JUDAS PRIEST will embark on a U.S. in the fall. Support on the trek will come from Los Angeles glam-metal jokesters STEEL PANTHER.
