JUDAS PRIEST Starts New Album Announcement Countdown On Official Website

Wednesday, 23rd April 2014

British heavy metal legends JUDAS PRIEST have launched a countdown suggesting that they will reveal more information about their much-anticipated new studio album in five days via their official web site, JudasPriest.com.

Speaking to Artisan News at last month’s VIP listening party for the Ronnie James Dio tribute album This Is Your Life and awards gala at the Avalon in Hollywood, California, JUDAS PRIEST singer Rob Halford stated about the band’s new CD: “The record is finished; it’s absolutely finished as of today.” He added: “It’s a relief. It’s a relief because whenever PRIEST makes an album, like any band, you put your heart and soul into it; it is that typical ‘blood, sweat and tears.’ It’s not an easy thing to do 40 years later. But PRIEST has always been up for the challenge of that, and it’s one of things that we love to do more than anything else as we move on through our metal years. So this is a great time for PRIEST: 40th anniversary, a brand new record. Life couldn’t be better.”
