Judas Priest announce new single ahead of UK & Irish tour

New single, The Serpent and the King – from the album, Invincible Shield, released on 8 March –  sees Judas Priest at their heavy metal best, with what is without doubt the most fist pumping track on their much-anticipated forthcoming new album.

The new single launched as Apple Music’s New Music Daily, along with an exclusive interview with Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford by Zane Lowe. The band have been teasing snippets of the new song on socials for over a month, whipping fans into a frenzy for its release.

Judas Priest’s three previous recent singles Panic Attack, Trial By Fire and Crown Of Horns have been streamed over 15million times since release.

The band embark on a world tour this year – the UK and Irish leg kicks-off in Glasgow on March 11th and includes a show at Bournemouth BIC on Sunday 17 March.

Over the past 50 years Judas Priest have sold more than 50 million albums worldwide and headlined the world’s biggest stages.

Their evolving music and live performances also saw the band develop a powerful unique identity, a look which has both defined the group and influenced future generations of metal bands the world over.  With each year the Judas Priest legend continues to grow – 2022 saw them inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and complete a sold-out rescheduled world tour in support of their 50th Anniversary.

As we roll into 2024 Judas Priest continue to retain their crown as one of the biggest and best British bands in the world. Follow them for more information: Instagram | TikTok | Facebook | Twitter  | YouTube
