Audio samples of all the tracks that are set to appear on JUDAS PRIEST's forthcoming double-disc concept album, "Nostradamus", are available on Amazon.com.
"Nostradamus" is scheduled for release via Columbia Records on Monday, June 16 in Europe, and a day later in the U.S. on Epic Records.
Long in the works, "Nostradamus" takes epic storytelling to a whole new level, as it recounts the life of this mysterious, world-known 16th century French prophet.
Some of the events that Nostradamus experts have interpreted as his predictions include the great fire of London in 1666, the rise of Adolf Hitler, and most recently, 9-11, among countless other renowned events.
As with all new PRIEST releases, the group singer Rob Halford, guitarists Glenn Tipton and K.K. Downing, bassist Ian Hill, and drummer Scott Travis will embark on a mammoth worldwide tour in support of "Nostradamus".
According to a posting on JUDAS PRIEST's official web site, PRIEST's UK fans have a chance to grab three official ringbacks and mastertones from the band's forthcoming album "Nostradamus" starting this week. The featured songs are "Nostradamus", "Visions" and "War".
