On July 8, Halford, Tipton and Faulkner will appear on SiriusXM's "Town Hall" program. Fans are being asked to submit questions that winners will be able to ask the band in person.

Speaking to the "Trunk Nation" show, which airs on SiriusXM's Hair Nation, 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."
