Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford says the band want the follow-up to 2014’s Redeemer Of Souls to be a worthy addition to their back catalogue.
With an acclaimed collection of records behind them, the Birmingham band refuse to rest on their laurels.
Halford tells KBAD 94.FM: “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.”
