Tim "Ripper" Owens says that he is "looking forward to finishing" the "killer" debut album from KK'S PRIEST, his new collaboration with founding JUDAS PRIEST guitarist K.K. Downing and ex-PRIEST drummer Les Binks. The band, which will pay homage to Downing's past, is rounded out by guitarist A.J. Mills (HOSTILE) and bassist Tony Newton (VOODOO SIX).
When the formation of KK'S PRIEST was first announced on Tueday (February 18), Owens took to his Facebook to write: "I'm really excited about this, and the demand for it was simply amazing! It sure will be nice to make the real fans of hard rock and heavy metal music and the real JUDAS PRIEST fans happy! This is gonna rock." Owens said: "I'm looking forward to finishing this killer new CD."
KK'S PRIEST's debut album will be released via Explorer1 Music Group. The group will also play select shows later this year to mark the 50th anniversary of PRIEST and Downing's career as a founding member. KK'S PRIEST's setlist will consist of PRIEST classics and new songs.
