JUDAS PRIEST To Embark On Japanese Tour In Late April/Early May

January 25, 2005

JUDAS PRIEST will be embarking on a Japanese tour in late April/early May, immediately following the group's European trek. Exact cities and dates will be announced soon.

PRIEST have yet to announce their U.S. tour plans but it is expected that they will be scheduling a headlining run in the summer. Among the rumored support acts for the trek are QUEENSRĊ¸CHE, DIO and BLACK LABEL SOCIETY.

JUDAS PRIEST's new album, "Angel of Retribution" (view cover here) is scheduled for release on March 1 via Epic Records.

Singer Rob Halford's first album with the band 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 will be bundled with a concert DVD shot in a bullring in Valencia, Spain.

Epic will celebrate the reunion of the "Painkiller"-era JUDAS PRIEST lineup by issuing a DualDisc (a two-sided disc made up of a CD player side and a DVD player side) for the "Angel of Retribution" title.
