Hear Judas Priest Perform ‘Some Heads Are Gonna Roll’ Live: Exclusive Premiere

Judas Priest‘s remastered and expanded Defenders of the Faith won’t arrive until March 10, but you don’t have to wait that long to hear the live version of “Some Heads Are Gonna Roll” from the bonus discs.

We’re proud to present the exclusive premiere of the track, taken from the Live at Long Beach Arena, California 5th May 1984 show that takes up the second and third CDs in the expanded edition of Defenders of the Faith. As previously reported, that 21-song live set adds a complete concert from the band’s tour in support of Defenders, which found Priest extending a platinum streak with the hit follow-up to 1982’s Screaming for Vengeance.

In addition to the previously unreleased concert recordings, this version of Defenders also includes a remastered take on the original 10-track LP, which featured the hit singles “Freewheel Burning,” “Some Heads Are Gonna Roll” and “Love Bites.” “It’s 30 years since we released Defenders of the Faith,” the band writes in the liner notes. “We’re very proud to say it has become a classic that’s beloved by Priest fans throughout the world.”

This exclusive premiere of “Some Heads Are Gonna Roll” follows the advance release of “Freewheel Burning” from the Live at Long Beach discs, which the band posted on its Facebook page late last year in exchange for newsletter signups. The anniversary edition of Defenders of the Faith arrives before a rumored 2015 tour with Ozzy Osbourne and Motörhead.
