The events of 2020 forced Judas Priest to postpone an epic 50th anniversary tour, but the vaunted English heavy metal gods have set course for new dates this fall on the 50 Heavy Metal Years tour.

Officially announced on Monday, the outing will kick off in early September and features special guests Sabaton accompanying Rob Halford and the band on the run. A news release notes that the tour is a Live Nation production, and “will feature a variety of special effects, which will undoubtedly enhance the might of Priest’s metal.”

Quotes from the band members:

“Defending the heavy metal faith for fifty years, the Priest is back!” – Rob Halford
“Time to don the leather and studs and roll out the Priest Machine – celebrating our 50 Heavy Metal Years!!” – Glenn Tipton
“After the horrific year of restrictions we’ve all had to endure, what better place to break free, than the land of the free – the USA!” – Ian Hill
