The Metal Gods are returning to North America for a batch of must-see shows! After a ripping 2014 leg of the band's Redeemer of Souls tour, where Rob Halford performed some of his career's greatest vocal work, a 2015 run has been revealed.

As of now, Judas Priest's 2015 North American dates are scheduled to begin Oct. 16 in Paso Pobles, Calif., and wrap up in Halifax, Canada, on Nov. 12. Mastodon have been confirmed as support, creating a phenomenal bill metalheads will be drooling over. Fans can order pre-sale tickets using the password: Redeemer.

"You can always put your foot down and make it a bit more than the prior performance," Rob Halford told us in a recent interview. "I never feel I’ve gotten to the place where I feel that’s as good as I can do. I always feel that I need to see what else is available. That’s just the way I am as a singer. I always feel that the next performance can be a bit better than the one before. You push yourself and at the same time keep it real. You’ve got to keep it f—ing real. I think that’s a part of the life of Priest."
