Judas Priest to guest on Rockline

Judas Priest will promote the launch of their new live DVD, “Epitaph,” with an appearance on the US nationally-syndicated radio show Rockline with host Bob Coburn.

Priest will guest on the May 15th episode of Rockline, which starts at 8:30pm PT/11:30pm ET.

For more information on finding a station near you and for information regarding how to log onto the internet broadcast go to The show will be streamed on the Rockline website for two weeks beginning the afternoon after the live broadcast.

Due May 28, “Epitaph” revisits the climactic closing date of the 50-week Epitaph World Tour, captured live at London’s HMV Hammersmith Apollo on May 26th, 2012.

Adding to the drama is the fact that this was Judas Priest’s final large-scale world tour ever.

A unique live career retrospective, “Epitaph”’s 23 tracks represent at least one song from every one of the band’s 14 studio albums, from 1974’s Rocka Rolla ('Never Satisfied') to 2008’s Nostradamus ('Prophecy'). In the special case of British Steel, four songs are featured: 'Rapid Fire', 'Metal Gods', 'Breaking The Law', and perennial set closer, 'Living After Midnight'. Others exempted from the one-song-quota are the LPs which appeared before and after British Steel. The first of these is 1979’s Hell Bent For Leather (UK title: Killing Machine) which lends the title song as well as 'The Green Manalishi (With The Two-Pronged Crown)'. The other LP is 1982’s Screaming For Vengeance, source of 'The Hellion', 'Electric Eye', and 'You’ve Got Another Thing Coming'.

“Epitaph” was directed by Brickwall's Alex Walker and sound-engineered by Richard Kayvan and Tom Allom, the mastermind behind countless seminal metal records.
