Judas Priest premiere No Surrender video

Judas Priest are premiering a video for “No Surrender”, a track from their latest album “Firepower.”

The clip sees the veteran UK metal band performing the song in a rehearsal space, where they are joined by guitarist Glenn Tipton, who retired from the road this spring due to health issues from a diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease.

“’No Surrender’ captures the true metal fighting spirit and metalheads around the world find a united voice within the message of this song,” says the group. “When you honestly believe in yourself and live your life the way you have the right to with no surrender, then nothing will ever stop you from living your dream.”

Tipton – who hand-picked “Firepower” co-producer Andy Sneap to take over his guitar duties on the road – and Judas Priest have been using the song’s inspirational message as part of a fund-raising initiative for the newly-launched Glenn Tipton Parkinson's Foundation.

“It was the band that suggested we start a foundation which, although in my name, is really a Judas Priest foundation,” Tipton explains. “We are selling t-shirts with the slogan 'No Surrender’ which is very appropriate considering the determination you have to summon up to get on with life and beat this illness.”

“All proceeds we receive from you will go to this cause and I urge not just Judas Priest fans but everyone out there to help,” adds the guitarist. “If you can't get to the shows, you can also purchase t-shirts on line here.

Currently on the road across Europe, Judas Priest will return to North America to team up with Deep Purple for a series of fall concert dates that will begin in Cincinnati, OH on August 21.
