Former JUDAS PRIEST Singer To Re-Release Solo Albums

May 24, 2003

Former JUDAS PRIEST frontman Al Atkins will have two of his solo albums re-released shortly.

Atkins' 1994 effort, "Heavy Thoughts", will surface through Market Square Records, with worldwide distribution from Koch International, while the singer's last solo album, 1998's "Victim Of Changes" will be made available through Sanctuary Records.

The new version of "Heavy Thoughts" will include two bonus tracks recorded last year with BUDGIE guitarist Simon Lees. "Victim Of Changes" features several classic PRIEST songs written by Al, such as "Never Satisfied", "Mind Conception", "Holy Is The Man" and Atkins' version of "Whiskey Woman" (later re-titled "Victim Of Changes").

Al Atkins, who co-founded JUDAS PRIEST in 1969 and remained in the group until 1973, is currently looking for a new record deal. The 55-year-old singer reportedly hopes to release an album with classic metal songs similar to the old PRIEST tunes.

Any record labels who are interested in exploring the matter further, please contact Michael Liljhammar at [email protected].
