Former Judas Priest and Iced Earth frontman, Tim "Ripper" Owens will be releasing his first solo album this May, entitled "Play My Game." The album boasts a large number of guest musicians including Jeff Loomis of Nevermore, Vinny Appiece of Heaven And Hell, Megadeth's James Lomenzo, Whitesnake guitarist Doug Aldrich, former Megadeth/current F5 bassist David Ellefson, Michael Wilton of Queensryche and many more.

Says Owens: "I’ve gotten better as a songwriter. And I also write songs that the fans can really get into and get their fist pounding in the air. I’ve always been a great fan of the Black Sabbath line-up featuring Ronnie James Dio, and I love Judas Priest. Both bands delivered records that are straight forward and go directly to the bloodstream – which also happens to be my compositional approach."

The release dates for "Play My Game" are as follows:

Germany / Austria / Switzerland: May 15th
UK / rest of Europe: May 18th
USA / Canada: May 19th
