Judas Priest score first US Top 10 album with Redeemer Of Souls

Judas Priest have scored the first US Top 10 of their career with their new album, “Redeemer Of Souls.”

The 17th release by the UK metal legends debuts at No. 6 on the US Billboard 200 with 33,000 copies sold.

The band previously peaked at No. 11 with 2008’s “Nostradamus.”

“Redeemer Of Souls” is available in a standard version and a deluxe edition with five bonus tracks.

The project marks guitarist Richie Faulkner's studio debut with the group; he replaced founding member K.K. Downing following his retirement in 2011.

Judas Priest will launch a North American tour October 1 in Rochester, New York; the 6-week run will wrap up November 22 in Tacoma, Washington.
