Judas Priest To Issue ‘British Steel’ Coffee
When it comes to merchandise, bands are branching out. Many groups have ventured into the wine or beer business, and now the mighty Judas Priest will have own brand of coffee.
To celebrate the 35th anniversary of their British Steel album, Priest are teaming up with Dark Matter Coffee for a limited edition run of bags of British Steel coffee along with an old-school cassette single featuring "Grinder" and "Snakebite."
Dark Matter issued a press release talking about the seminal British Steel album and namesake coffee, which says in part, "Priest unleashed this razor sharp maelstrom onto the collective consciousness and we've thankfully never been the same since! Instantly recognizable for their peerless attack, the fuel for this inexorable juggernaut must be both ebullient and unremitting. The brewed crude sparkles cup after cup, sin after sin. Death to False Coffee."
A bag of coffee and cassingle will set you back $18. It will be available beginning April 14 at Dark Matter's three Chicago retail locations. You can also pre-order it via their website.
Judas Priest recently issued the 30th anniversary edition of Defenders of the Faith and continue to tour in support of 2014's Redeemer of Souls. They'll be headlining the Rock USA Festival in Oshkosh, Wis., in July along with some other U.S. shows and festivals this summer. For their complete tour calendar, go here.
