Judas Priest have released a short teaser of their new track Children Of The Sun.
The video snippet features frontman Rob Halford, with the full song included on their new record Firepower. The band’s 18th studio album will launch tomorrow (March 9).
Speaking with the Metal Hammer podcast earlier this week, Halford and bassist Ian Hill said they couldn’t see the band calling it a day any time soon.
Halford said: “I cannot conceive of us ever saying, in 2022, at 3 o’clock, on a Wednesday afternoon, July, we’re gonna end. I think more than ever now, we’re so joyed and grateful that we’ve been able to get this far from the support of our fans that you don’t say a farewell tour, you don’t say retire.
“I think slowly but surely we’ll just play less and less and less, but I can’t see that for the foreseeable future.”
The podcast is available to download via iTunes, while Halford and Black Sabbath icon Tony Iommi are the cover stars of the latest edition of Metal Hammer magazine, which is on sale now.
