Judas Priest tease new album news

Judas Priest recently completed work on a new album, and the band are now teasing a forthcoming official announcement about the project.

“The wait is nearly over,” posted the group. “New album coming soon. More to be revealed shortly.”

Last month, Judas Priest singer Rob Halford updated fans on the band’s follow-up to 2008's "Nostradamus."

"The record is finished; it's absolutely finished as of today," said Halford at the Ronnie James Dio This Is Your Life Tribute Concert and Awards Gala in Hollywood. “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."

Judas Priest plan to tour in support of the new album this year, although not quite as extensively as it has in the past, and will mark the 40th anniversary of their debut album, "Rocka Rolla."
