Judas Priest is about to release their new CD ‘The Chosen Few’ on October 11th, and their North American ‘Epitaph’ Farewell tour begins Oct. 12th in San Antonio at the AT&T Center. Details on the new CD and tour dates below.

JUDAS PRIEST CELEBRATE STELLAR METAL CAREER WITH TWO COMPILATIONS AND UPCOMING NORTH AMERICAN EPITAPH TOUR

Judas Priest’s contribution to the world of heavy metal can never be understated, as there are few metal bands that appeared in their wake that can match the group for their influence on the genre, and the amount of classic albums and anthems they created. And soon, fans will be able to re-experience Judas Priest’s all-time classic recordings with two compilations.

On October 18th, fans will have 20 discs of Priest to sink their teeth into, when ‘Single Cuts’ arrives. The box set presents all of the group’s UK 7″ and 12″ A and B sides from 1977 through 1992 (a total of 51 tracks), and each single will be featured as a vinyl-replica disc, and housed in a wallet featuring the original artwork. Additionally, the set will feature track-by-track notes by Kerrang! founder Geoff Barton, as well as rarely seen photos.

‘Single Cuts’ will be made available as a limited edition set, and pre-orders are now being taken via judaspriest.com, or via this direct link: www.myplaydirect.com/judas-priest

And for those metalheads who are looking for a stellar single disc of Priest classics, ‘The Chosen Few’ will certainly fit the bill. Released a week earlier than ‘Single Cuts,’ ‘The Chosen Few’ is comprised of 17 Priest classics, chosen by some of the biggest names of the hard rock/heavy metal community (including Ozzy Osbourne, James Hetfield, Slash, and Alice Cooper, among countless others). The result is a release that manages to include the obvious choices (“Breaking the Law,” “Living After Midnight,” “You’ve Got Another Thing Coming,” etc.) with the less-than-obvious, but just as rocking (“Dissident Aggressor,” “Rapid Fire,” “Turbo Lover,” etc.).

And last but not least, U.S. fans will soon be able to experience these Priest classics one last time on a nearby concert stage, as the group will be launching their Epitaph Tour on October 12th, in San Antonio, TX.
As Priest’s vocalist, Rob Halford, recently told Rolling Stone about the upcoming dates, “We’re pulling out all the stops. We’ve built a brand new stage set, we’ve got all the effects that people love us for – the lasers, the fire, the bombs, the smoke, new costumes, and the bike. It’s just a full-on metal extravaganza.”
