Judas Priest front man Rob Halford is getting ready to “expose every facet” of himself in an upcoming autobiography titled Confess.
For a guy who’s most famous for repeating the line “Breaking the Law,” the book will definitely have some scorchers for heavy metal fans and music industry aficionados alike.
The life and career of the heavy metal icon will be on full display in the book, including his reasons for quitting the band in the early 90s, his decision to come out publicly as a gay man in 1998, and his ultimate return to front the band in 2003.
Upon the project’s announcement last year, Halford promised no holds barred in a press release saying, “Confess is a unique once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for me to expose every facet of myself -- Digging deep with nothing to hide and nothing to fear was in many ways exciting, fun, disturbing, terrifying and cathartic. I’ve held nothing back. It’s time for me to ‘confess.’”
As with most tours in 2020, Judas Priest were forced to postpone their 50th anniversary trek, but still plan to open up for Ozzy Osbourne overseas this fall. However, with the COVID-19 health crisis still in full swing and Ozzy’s recent health issues, there’s a chance everything could be scrapped in the coming weeks.
Halford’s Confess is scheduled for release on September 29. Pre-order your copy right here.
