Judas Priest will be releasing their “Battle Cry” DVD later this month, but that’s not all they have planned for us in the future! We’ve heard rumors that they might be working on another album, and now it is confirmed! In a new interview with Metal Shock Finland, Rob Halford gave this exciting update on the new material: “The writing sessions will come first and I think much like any band, you start off the day in a writing session and you’ve got nothing you know. You turn the amps on and you start riffing and jamming and maybe by the end of the day you’ve got something that will turn into a really good piece of music, that’ll potentially last forever. So that creative side of Priest is as strong as it ever was and we’re all very very pumped up and thrilled for the opportunity that’s about to come to us again. There’s a new Priest record on the way and when it’s ready we’ll be letting everyone know it’s on the horizon. I would like to think that by the end of this year we’ll have the bulk of it created, but you can’t say for certain. The thing about Priest is that we treasure everything that we do, we so love being in this band Judas Priest. We can guarantee that we’ll give you a big solid dose of Priest metal!”
I think I speak for all of us when I say HELL YES!!!! 2014’s “Redeemer of Souls” record was absolutely incredible, and to know that new material is on it’s way is just awesome! All hail Priest!
