LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) -- Heavy metal rockers Judas Priest are in a busy time in their long career and the media finally had all their questions answered from five very reliable sources – Judas Priest's very own Rob Halford, Glenn Tipton, Ian Hill, Scott Travis, and new guitarist, Richie Faulkner.

On Tuesday, May 24th, all five members were on hand at the Renaissance Hotel at Highland and Hollywood in Los Angeles to answer questions about the upcoming 'Epitaph U.S Tour' and to formally introduce new guitarist Richie Faulkner.

Few heavy metal bands have managed to scale the heights that Judas Priest has during their nearly 40-year career. Celebrated for not only issuing some of metal's all-time classic albums ('British Steel,' 'Screaming for Vengeance,' 'Painkiller,' etc.) and anthems ("Breaking the Law," "Living After Midnight," "You've Got Another Thing Coming," etc.), the group has also been one of the leading rock acts for decades and introduced the "leather look" to heavy metal.

It was recently announced that the upcoming ‘Epitaph Tour’ will be Judas Priest's last and next week the band will set the record straight as to what to expect from Judas Priest in the coming months. - CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
