Judas Priest working on farewell tour live DVD

Just a few weeks ago, Judas Priest played the final show of their “Epitaph” world tour.

The band’s year-long farewell trek kicked off last June in Holland, and has played around the globe.

Epitaph saw the introduction of guitarist Richie Faulkner to the Priest fold, following the sudden retirement of Kenneth “K.K.” Downing just six weeks before the tour’s launch.

The final Epitaph show - at the Hammersmith Apollo in London - was professionally filmed for a 2013 DVD release.

The work on the project has already begun, according to Faulkner.

"Had a sneaky listen to the recording of the Hammersmith show with [producer] Tom Allom. Rearrange these words: Face your off it's tear gonna," posted Faulkner on his Facebook page.
