Judas Priest Announce Deluxe Reissue of 1986 Album, ‘Turbo’

Three-disc set features “Live in Kansas City,” documenting “Fuel for Life” tour behind 1986 album

Judas Priest will release a remastered deluxe version of their 10th LP, 1986’s Turbo, on February 3rd via Sony Music. The reissue, available as a 3-CD set and 150-gram vinyl LP, compiles the original album along with a two-disc concert, “Live in Kansas City,” documenting their “Fuel for Life” tour.

“The Eighties is considered to have been the best decade for heavy metal – Judas Priest roared through it and at the half way point went into unchartered territory with Turbo,” the band said in a statement. 

“Always believing that metal should have no boundaries, Priest challenged themselves taking on board new technical inventions to create fresh ideas and push their sound forward. The combined songs show another side of Priest’s range of creativity that captures a theme and energy infused with the over the top sensibilities of that era. The ‘Fuel For Life’ tour certainly encapsulated the decadence of the times!”

Turbo spawned singles like “Locked In” and “Turbo Lover.” The record was a stylistic turning point for the metal band, implementing guitar-synthesizers and shifting away from fantasy-based lyrics toward personal subject matter. The album reached Number 17 on the Billboard 200. 

“If we’d shut off every possibility we wouldn’t have been as adventurous,” singer Rob Halford told Classic Rock Magazine in 2012 (via Ultimate Classic Rock), reflecting on that controversial era. “The truth is, we’ve never believed in rules.”
