JUDAS PRIEST Are ‘Making Another Record Right Now’


JUDAS PRIEST frontman Rob Halford was interviewed by the KBAD 94.5 FM radio station in Sioux Falls, South Dakota on June 16th. Couple of excerpts can be read below (as transcribed by Blabbermouth.net).

Speaking about PRIEST‘s plans for the immediate future, Halford said: “More metal. We’re making another record right now, which should be ready when it’s ready. But this’ll be our umpteenth record, hundreds of metal songs later. We have a tremendous treasure trail behind us that we cherish, and we wanna make sure that what we put in front of that is equally worthy. So we take a lot of time in making the best music that we can. But it’s exciting to think that not too far from now, there’ll be another PRIEST record on the horizon with some more shows.”
