Judas Priest is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the release of its eighth studio effort, Screaming for Vengeance, with a deluxe two-disc version of the album that’s scheduled to hit stores on September 4th. The classic album contained their hugely successful ‘You’ve Got Another Thing Comin’, the single which proved that metal could get mainstream radio airplay in the US –leading the way for a whole generation of new metal bands.

‘Screaming For Vengeance – Special 30th Anniversary Edition’ will contain not only the re-mastered original album plus bonus tracks, but also a live DVD from the 1983 ‘Heavy Metal Day’ US Festival show, filmed in San Bernadino CA. on May 29th, 1983. “It was the day new wave died and rock n’ roll took over.”

Judas Priest have this to say about this memorable day in metal history: “On the day that we performed, we flew in by helicopter – and the first sight we saw was that of thousands of abandoned cars piled up around the crests of the hills that surrounded the festival arena, which as we went over took our breath away. For there below us, spread throughout hundreds of acres was a massive crowd – over three hundred thousand strong! The summer heat was raging and combined with the hot Santa Ana winds made for a scorching metal furnace on stage.”
