JUDAS PRIEST Select 'Worth Fighting For' As Next Single

JUDAS PRIEST have selected "Worth Fighting For" — a classic power ballad about a dysfunctional relationship — as the second single off their critically acclaimed "Angel of Retribution" album. The single will go for radio adds on April 12.

In a recent interview with Revolver magazine, JUDAS PRIEST frontman Rob Halford (who is openly gay) was asked whether he would choose to make the relationship male/female if the band were to shoot a video for the track.

"If it was up to me, I would do a boy/boy relationship . . . because I'm a homosexual," Halford replied. "So there's a debate. Maybe we should do a bunch of videos. We should do boy/girl, boy/boy, girl/girl, transgender/transgender, black/white, Roman Catholic/Jew, Protestant/Quaker. That would cover all the bases. [Sighs] I don't know. Maybe we best stay the normal course of events, and out a man and a woman together. But I see Herb Ritts all over it, and that's gonna cost an arm and a leg, so it probably won't be made into a video."

Halford's first album with JUDAS PRIEST in 15 years, "Angel of Retribution" was produced by Roy Z, who has previously worked on solo albums from Halford and IRON MAIDEN's Bruce Dickinson. The set is bundled with a concert DVD shot in a bullring in Valencia, Spain.
