Although the next JUDAS PRIEST album, 'Firepower' (the band's 18th album!) won't be released until March 2018, the heritage heavy-metal-ers have offered up a brief (15 second) 'taste' of the new album's title track.  'Firepower' is the band's follow up to 2014's 'Redeemer of Souls' album, and Priest fans should be delighted with the trademark screaming guitars,massive volume, and ROB HALFORD's familiar,aggressive vocals. For the new LP, Halford teamed with original Priest guitarist, GLEN TIPTON, and the newest addition to the band, RICHIE FAULKNER, who joined up in 2011 after the departure of K.K. Downing. Of the new Priest music, Halford, in an interview with on-line music site Vintage Rock (via Blabbermouth) said, "It's great. This is what Priest lives for. "We're a hard-working metal band still making the metal 40-odd years later, thanks to our glorious metal fans around the world. So we make music now, obviously, still for our own pleasure and enjoyment, and the challenge of finding a new riff and a new melody is always very … it's a great feeling." The Judas Priest Tour in support of 'Firepower' kicks off in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania about a week after the album's release, and it's scheduled to wrap on My 1st in San Antonio, Texas. Rock On, Judas Priest!
