Knowing our fans around the planet recognize that venue for many legendary metal moments, and of course with Judas Priest being a British metal band it was the perfect gig for us to film and record. Big thanks as always to you our metal family of fans – so start banging your heads one more time with us as we scream together ‘The Priest is back!’’
Omniverse Vision, the global distributor of the film, has confirmed screenings in key markets in the US and is excited to announce a partnership with Tugg, a web-platform that will enable fans to request a screening of EPITAPH at their local theater and create their own event.
