Judas Priest's new studio album, Firepower, was released Friday and in celebration of its arrival, a themed pop-up shop has opened in New York City at Sony Square NYC.
The shop is located at the same place where the metal gods will take part in the recently announced signing event scheduled for Monday, March 19, at 6 p.m. ET. Fans who purchase a copy of Firepower at the shop, located at 25 Madison Ave., will receive a wristband that allow them to attend the meet-and-greet and autograph session.
Only a limited number of wristbands will be handed out, on a first-come, first-served basis. No posed photos will be allowed, and the band only will sign copies of Firepower purchased at the Sony Square NYC shop.
The pop-up store, which will remain open through March 19, will feature a display showcasing a gallery of rare photos of the band, stage outfits, lyric sheets handwritten by frontman Rob Halford and other memorabilia. In addition to copies of Firepower, the shop will sell the band's entire catalog on vinyl and a variety of official Judas Priest merch.
In conjunction with the album's release, Judas Priest has premiered a video for the new track, "Spectre," on its official VEVO YouTube channel. The clip for the ominous, hard-rocking song features close-up footage of the band members performing the tune, interspersed with eerie, grainy glimpses of lightning, a striking snake, a skull, fires, surveillance footage of traffic intersections and mushroom clouds.
Judas Priest launches a North American tour in support of Firepower this Tuesday, March 13, in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.
