Heavy metal titans Judas Priest have a new album titled Invincible Shield coming out on March 8 and to celebrate its release, they’re going on tour next spring. Not only that, but they’re bringing along their long-time friends Sabaton.
Set to take place across 14 shows, the ‘Invincible Shield Tour’ will kick off in Wallingford, Connecticut on April 18 and come to a close on May 22 in Syracuse, New York.
This bit of news comes as Priest fans are eagerly awaiting the band’s second single off the new album, “Trial By Fire.” It was teased yesterday with a quick little clip on social media, but already it sounds pretty cool from what we can hear. Couple that with the fact the first single “Panic Attack” was fun and you’ve got one hell of a hype machine for the new album.
Tickets for the “Invincible Shield Tour” will go on sale to the general public this Friday, November 17, though an artist presale will kick off tomorrow, with additional presales taking over the next few days.
