Judas Priest have released a short audio clip of their new track Evil Never Dies.

The full song will appear on the band’s upcoming 18th studio album Firepower, which will launch on March 9.

Priest previously revealed Firepower and Lightning Strike from the album, along with a snippet of Traitors Gate.

Speaking about the new record, guitarist Richie Faulkner said: “We feel like it’s a progression from Redeemer Of Souls. I think this is a better album than the last one.

“If it wasn’t better, there would be no point in releasing it. We wanted to do something that was better, that was different, that was classic Judas Priest but modern Judas Priest for 2018. I think we’ve done that.”

The band will head out on the North American leg of their Firepower tour from next month. Andy Sneap will take over guitar duties after Glenn Tipton was forced to step back due to his Parkinson’s diagnosis.
