JUDAS PRIEST HAS BEST CHART POSITION ON BILLBOARD 200, “REDEEMER” OF AND BY FANS
Judas Priest has debuted in the Billboard Top 10 with their new album Redeemer Of Souls. The latest effort debuted at Number 6 on the Billboard 200 chart, which is the best chart position of their career. While that number is a success, sales wise the numbers are way down for a Number 6 debuting band. Sia has the top album in the land with just over 52,000 albums sold as tabulated by Hits Magazine.
Metal fans are loyal, and Judas Priest has no shame in saying they wouldn’t be where they are without them. In fact, Priest wrote them an open letter, which they put in the back of the CD booklet. We asked them about being there for the fans and the fans being there for them.
Despite retiring from world tours, the group does have a manageable run of North America this fall. Go to judaspreist.com for more info.
