Judas Priest fans rejoice! In a new interview with Planet Rock‘s Paul Anthony, Rob Halford gave this exciting update on their new record, “We’re still tracking. I won’t say we’re at the end of the recording process, but we feel like we’re coming to some of the final moments. And it’s just great to watch how a record comes together, from those early, early days where there was just me and Glenn and Richie sitting in the studio with a couple of guitars and just, you know, doing what we do. You start the day with nothing, and then at the end of day, potentially, you’ve got a really great, classic Priest song that may live forever. So we’re hard at it. We’re still doing what we love to do. PRIEST is a working band more than anything else. It’s that Midlands ethic, the work ethic of anybody that goes to work… I say it’s work, ’cause it is work — you’re working with your mind, you’re being creative. And now we’re moving through into other stages, we’re preparing for another big world tour, getting stage designs sorted, lighting designs sorted. So this is the beginning of what’s gonna be a very exciting 2018 period.”
Hopefully the legends can wrap up the recording process soon so new Judas Priest tunes can be in our ears before the end of the year! Stay tuned for more updates!
