Judas Priest Will Still Play Live and Record New Music

(Gibson) Please don't fall for the dirty rumor that Judas Priest are packing up their heavy metal suits and calling it quits. While the band's current Epitaph World Tour is being billed as their last showing, the British metal kingpins are merely staying away from any overly ambitious, global tour after Epitaph, but they still plan to make music and play shows.

"This is our last world tour, but that doesn't mean it will be our last live performances, and we'll certainly do more albums," guitarist Glenn Tipton told Noisecreep.

The men of Judas Priest are having a killer last bout on the worldwide front. "It's been incredible," Tipton said. "... We're fortunate across the board, really. We're obviously popular in America and throughout Europe we've just done a great European tour and a lot of the Latin countries, Spanish-speaking countries. We go to these far corners of the planet, places like Turkey or Chile, and 15,000 or 20,000 kids show up, so we're very lucky, really." more on this story
