All five members of Judas Priest - Rob Halford, Glenn Tipton, Ian Hill, Scott Travis, and the band's latest addition, 31-year-old guitarist Richie Faulkner (Lauren Harris, Dirty Deeds) - took part in a press conference Tuesday, May 24, at the Renaissance Hotel at Highland and Hollywood in Los Angeles to answer questions about the upcoming "Epitaph" U.S. tour and to formally introduce Faulkner. During the event, it was revealed that Judas Priest will release the "Single Cuts" CD-singles box set and the "Classic Albums Collection" later this year containing the following material:

Glenn Tipton on final tour: "If somebody came along and said, 'Would you do a small string of dates,' we wouldn’t automatically say no to that. But in general, this is probably the last chance you'll get to see Priest live."

Rob Halford on new material: "We wanted to make at least one more great metal album that really represents all the wonderful things we've tried to do. If things go as planned, we want to get this out by the summer of next year."
