Judas Priest to release Single Cuts in August

At the start of their last major world tour, Judas Priest and Sony Music are proud to announce the release of the complete CBS/Columbia singles collection, Single Cuts.

Few heavy metal bands have managed to scale the heights that Judas Priest has during their 40 year career. Responsible for not only issuing some of metal’s all-time classic albums (British Steel, Screaming For Vengeance and Painkiller among them) and anthems (‘Breaking The Law’, ‘Living After Midnight’ and ‘You’ve Got Another Thing Coming’), the group has been one of the leading arena rock acts for decades. To date the band have sold in excess of 30 million albums worldwide.

Single Cuts is not only a testament to Priest’s enduring influence but also tells the story of why they are such a force in metal.
Boasting a massive 52 tracks across 20 discs the collection includes legendary cuts such as “Dissident Aggressor”, “Living After Midnight”, “Breaking The Law”, “Turbo Lover” and “Painkiller”. Also featured are much-loved tracks such as Priest’s unique cover of “The Green Manalishi (With The Two Pronged Crown)” plus a raft of live b sides.

Housed in a deluxe, numbered box, Single Cuts brings together the CBS/Columbia singles from 1977 to 1992, including 7″ and 12″ cuts. All singles are issued on vinyl replica CDs with original labels and 7″ vinyl artwork wallets.

In May this year Judas Priest debuted their new guitarist, 31 year old British Richie Faulkner on the finale of American Idol. The band are currently setting stages alight across Europe on their Epitaph tour which will see them on the road throughout 2011 and beyond.

Single Cuts is only available to order from the official Judas Priest website www.judaspriest.com
