Ahead of their very metal set at Soundwave Melbourne, we caught up with Priest’s Richie Faulkner for a quick chat.
Since joining the band in 2011, Richie has given the iconic heavy metallers a new lease of life and “reenergised” the band. Here he talks about how it feels to not only play the classics but to tour with Priest playing songs he co-wrote on their latest LP Redeemer Of Souls.
But that’s not all, there seems potential for another record too – “We’ve got loads of ideas and the energy to do it,” he says. Count us in!
