Following an epic appearance at this year's Power Trip Festival in the California Desert earlier this fall, Heavy metal Gods Judas Priest confirmed the arrival of their monumental 19th album, Invincible Shield. Combined with the pageantry of their 50th anniversary and their recent induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the band has now announced grand plans to tour the US to support their latest release.
Set to kick off spring of 2024, Priest will roll out a 14-date stretch of headlining dates under the Invincible Shield USA Tour - a run that will include a highly billed play at 2024 edition of Welcome to Rockville along with Motley Crue, Anthrax and more.
Joining the run, Judas Priest have confirmed battalion-metal veterans Sabaton as support for the entirety of the tour. Tickets for the run are set to go on sale November 17th at 10am local time at judaspriestinvincibleshield.com
In addition to the news of the headlining US tour, Judas Priest continue the rollout for their 19th studio album with the tease of yet another single. Coinciding with the sale of tickets for the run, Judas Priest will release their second single "Trial By Fire" on November 17th. The cut serves as the second preview of the album following the initial introduction of "Panic Attack" earlier this year.
