In 2020, after almost a decade of retirement after leaving Judas Priest, the legendary guitarist K.K. Downing formed his own band called KKs Priest alongside the ex-Priest vocalist Tim “Ripper” Owens.
Their first album “Sermons of the Sinner” was released in 2021 and now the group announced their second record called “The Sinner Rides Again” that will be out next September 29 via Napalm Records.
The first single “One More Shot At Glory” is already available to be heard on the streaming platforms.
“To continue the legacy of the traditional rock and metal that I have been so fortunate to be a part of for over 50 years, this latest album, The Sinner Rides Again, has been created to take the listener on a journey that is both real and fictional with its characters, although sometimes ambiguous.”
“These songs allow the imaginations of all fans of this wonderful genre of music to escape reality and join with us to continue our heavy metal experience into the future,” the guitarist K.K. Downing said.
The KK’s Priest shows will have tracks from their debut album “Sermons of The Sinner” (2021), from their new album and many Judas Priest classic songs.
Paul Di’Anno’s setlist has songs from the two first Iron Maiden albums, the self-titled released in 1980 and “Killers” from 1981. Di’Anno returned to the stage in 2023 after years struggling with health issues. He did shows in Europe and Brazil and already has many scheduled tour dates for 2024.
I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
