Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford is planning to “expose every facet” of himself with a tell-all autobiography titled Confess in September.

Although the iconic metal legend of Judas Priest earlier revealed that he had the book in the works late last year, the upcoming release date has been set for September 29th of this year.

In an initial statment, Halford admitted that he wouldn’t be holding anything back for his tell-all autobiography Confess, stating that the book “is a unique, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity” for him to be able to “expose every facet” of himself.

“Digging deep with nothing to hid and nothing to fear was in many ways exciting, fun, disturbing, terrifying, and cathartic,” he detailed. “I’ve held nothing back. It’s time for me to Confess.”

The new autobiography will encompass the entirety of both Halford’s career with Judas Priest, as well as his life, including his decision in 1998 to publicly come out as gay, plus his hiatus from the iconic metal collective from 1992 to 2003.
