[article]: Kick Axe gets nod

Kick Axe, a heavy metal band from Regina that's been kicking around Western Canada for 10 years, has been confirmed as Judas Priest's warm-up band for its coming U.S. tour. "This band is really going places," says Marian Donnelly of Star Kommand Productions. She says its first record, Vices, released last month, is getting good reviews from U.S. magazines. Its label is CBS. The U.S. tour with Priest kicks off June 26 in North Carolina.
