Official Metal Gods Judas Priest have released a video for the immense Trial By Fire, the second track to be released from their upcoming Invincible Shield album. 

The video finds the band – including guitarist Glenn Tipton – performing the song in a woodland, although, as no two musicians appear together in one shot, we suspect it may have been filmed in five different woodlands on five different occasions. 

Trial By Fire is the follow-up to Panic Attack, which saw the light of day in October. Invincible Shield, Judas Priest's 19th studio collection, is due to land on March 8 next year via Columbia Records, and is the follow-up to 2018's Firepower album.

Judas Priest also have a number of shows lined up for the UK and the US in 2024, plus two runs of dates in mainland Europe. Full dates below.
