JUDAS PRIEST - ROCK STAR

There appears to be a lot of confusion surrounding the movie 'Rock Star' and JUDAS PRIEST. The film is NOT about JUDAS PRIEST or their story. We all know that the production company got the original idea from an interview we did with The New York Times when Ripper first joined the band - however what they have done is take various ideas from many bands and put it all together into a purely fictional film - we have communicated with Warner Bros on a few occasions regarding the Judas Priest name being used incorrectly and they have categorically informed us that this film is fiction and not based on any particular band's story. The story line is so far removed from JUDAS PRIEST (other than the initial background to the new vocalist) that we have had to disassociate ourselves from it - when we hear there are scenes where the band fire their old singer because he is gay ......!! Well needless to say this is not the kind of thing we want any contact with. So once and for all - this film is NOT the story of JUDAS PRIEST!

 

24th August 2001

Second phase of the Remasters - Sin After Sin/Stained Class/Killing Machine (Hell Bent For Leather)/Unleashed in the East (Priest in the East) - all available individually or collectively in the limited edition collectors box pictured below.

JUDAS PRIEST
'DEMOLITION' ALBUM & WORLD TOUR

Legendary metal giants JUDAS PRIEST release their first new studio album for over three years 'Demolition' on Monday, July 16th (SPV Records). The release coincides with the bands current year long world tour which commenced last month in Switzerland and which will see Priest play to over two million fans in Europe alone during a series of major summer festivals.

As a result of massive ticket demand for the bands sell out show last month at London's Astoria, JUDAS PRIEST will be returning to the capital following the USA and Japanese legs of the tour to play a special Christmas show at BRIXTON ACADEMY on Wednesday, December 19th.

Tickets for the Brixton gig, promoted by Mean Fiddler, are now available priced at £17.50 from the Academy box office on 020 7771 2000 and all usual agents including Stargreen and Way Ahead. Credit card bookings can also be made online at www.ticketmaster.co.uk or www.meanfiddler.com.

3rd June 2001

Sorry for the delay in getting these soundbites to you but we've been so busy doing a million things including press and promotion in Europe for 3 weeks plus UK and Japanese press - all very time consuming but always really worthwhile and enjoyable!
Anyway enjoy them!
The album has a lot of variation in it which you'll all be able to hear for yourselves once you have it. We hope you enjoy it. At the moment we are heavily into rehearsals for the tour - we leave for the start of the tour next week - very soon now we'll be announcing some more dates including shows in the US, South America and many more territories. Release date for the single in the U.K. has been put back to 11th June, 2001 - we've just heard about this from the label so sorry if it has caused any of you any problems!
See you along the way on the road!

25th April 2001

The DVD/Video of the making of the Classic Albums TV programme on 'BRITISH STEEL' will be available in the UK and Europe on 28th May, 2001 and in the US in the Autumn. We do not have a definite date yet for the US but as soon as we get one we'll announce it.

 

11th April 2001

Please note the show on 4th July in Spain has changed - see the tour dates for details.

The reason the release of the new album DEMOLITION has been held until July is because the USA need approximately 2 or 3 months to 'work in' the album and have a good promotional campaign i.e. to get all the ads booked, press, radio etc., in palce - some magazines in the States have as much as 2 or 3 months lead time - in other words if we do an interview in April it will not come out until the June or July issue - therefore if Atlantic released the album at the end of May it would come out with no press, no ads, no promotion. Don't forget not everyone is on the internet - a lot of people have to wait to hear about a new album on the radio or read about it in the press. Atlantic want to do a really great job on this album and of course we want them to! We have discussed the situation with our labels in the other territories and they are all in agreement - you cannot release an album 2 months ahead in some territories - so we have reached a compromise where everyone is happy. We will still do our European dates which we are really looking forward to - Europe will come out with a single to tie in with this tour and we will use these shows to help build the excitement towards the release of the album! Don't worry time will fly and it won't be long before DEMOLITION is in your record stores!!

 

8th April 2001

The release dates for 'DEMOLTION' are as follows:

14TH JULY, 2001 JAPAN
16TH JULY, 2001 UK/EUROPE
31ST JULY, 2001 USA/CANADA

Europe will be releasing a single on 28th May, 2001 - title yet to be confirmed.

As you know the first segment of the tour has been announced and we are now putting together the American dates and second leg of Europe after which we will cross to South America and Japan and then work on dates for the rest of the world! We're all excited about getting back on the road where Priest belong playing old and new songs and some tracks off the new album which we are in the process of mixing. It's going to be difficult to finally decide what songs go in the 2001 set as there are so many of our favourites and everyone's favourites but we know that whatever we play we'll give 200%!!! We can't wait to get on the road again so hang in there and we'll see you all soon!
