Judas Priest will release its 16th studio album, "Nostradamus", on June 17 via Epic in North America and a day earlier internationally. The double-disc set that tells the story of the 16th century prophet, Michel de Nostredame (whose name is often "Latinized" as Nostradamus) is Priest's first-ever concept album, and was recorded throughout 2006 and 2007 at Old Smithy Studio in the UK.

Judas Priest's 2009 tour will include shows where the group's entire "Nostradamus" album will be performed while this year's concerts are expected to focus primarily on the band's classic songs.
