Not too much metal news could make me feel better than hearing this. I know that Judas Priest is past their prime, but they are far from done. They are still releasing music much better than a lot of what comes out these days. I will have Priest’s back until the end.
Metal gods Judas Priest are busy in the studio working on new music for their upcoming album. While there is promise to reveal more soon, the forthcoming album will be their first since co-founder K.K. Downing left in 2011 and Richie Faulkner stepped in. You can also expect a new live DVD/Blu-ray release from the band from their Epitaph Tour.
Here’s the message from the band: “The guys are working in the studio on their new album – and all is going is really well! We will be releasing the live ‘Epitaph’ DVD & Bluray soon – release date to be announced shortly!”
“We’re keeping the sites quiet for now whilst the guys are in the studio – more details to be announced soon!”
