According to Blabbermouth, Rena Sands, wife of Dream Theater guitarist John Petrucci and former guitarist in the all-female heavy metal band Meanstreak, has joined Judas Priestess, New York City's all-girl tribute to metal gods Judas Priest.
Formed in 2009, Judas Priestess has a worldwide reputation and is highly acclamed by press and fans alike. Even Priest members themselves, notably Rob Halford, K.K. Downing, and Judas Priestess original founder Al Atkins have admitted that these women have successfully demolished anyone's preconceived idea of what a "tribute" band is, especially an all-female tribute.
The stellar performances by the ladies of Judas Priestess always wow the crowd with both blistering talent and the unmistakable hard-rockin' look that defines who they are.
Rena Sands and John Petrucci live in St. James, New York and have three children together — twins Samantha and Renato, and Kiarra.
