KK’s PRIEST, the band comprised of renowned former JUDAS PRIEST guitarist, K.K. Downing and former vocalist Tim “Ripper” Owens, along with bandmates Tony Newton, AJ Mills and Sean Elg have announced the release of the single and video “Raise Your Fists” off their forthcoming Sermons Of The Sinner, which can be seen below. The album comes out via Explorer1 Music Group/EX1 Records on October 1, 2021. You can pre-order album via Amazon here.
“Raise Your Fists” is the latest single off Sermons Of The Sinner, a rousing anthem for rock fans everywhere. The video for the track features live performance — a medium to which the band is eager to return. “This video is emblematic of what you can expect to experience when the band hits the road. This song totally rejoices in everything Rock and Metal, and is a clear indication that the band is raring to go, so get ready to “raise your fists” with us when we hit the road!” says Downing.
KK’S PRIEST has unleashed an album with a modern sound that hearkens back to what fans have always loved about K.K. Downing and his music and which still sounds fresh including the high-speed album opener “Hellfire Thunderbolt,” the title track “Sermons of the Sinner,” and “Wild And Free” which revel in the passion and excess that metal fans embrace. The guitar interplay is intense and inspiring, and the band is firing on all cylinders. Sermons Of The Sinner is a musical statement that K.K. Downing‘s heavy metal ride is far from over after his extended hiatus. “The whole concept is the fact that I continue proudly to be who I am and what I am and do what I do,” declares K.K. “It’s been nearly 10 years. I’m back making music.”
KK’S PRIEST is set to tour worldwide as soon as current restrictions are lifted. Details of touring to be announced.
