Deep Purple and Judas Priest Team Up For North American Tour

Judas Priest
Jason Bullinger For Alternative Revolt

The metal gods have answered our prayers, as two heavy hitters in the music world will collide, teaming up for a massive tour of North America during the months of August, and September. Deep Purple and Judas Priest are just two of England’s finest bands, making their way together to the states, as they look to keep the fire burning within their massive weight of popularity.

Deep Purple is going on just over a year now since the release of their last studio album, inFinite, whereas Judas Priest is just greasing the wheels up on their newest album, Firepower, which just hit store shelves last month.
