Judas Priest Confirms Plans to Release 17th Album in 2014

Judas Priest
Mary Ouellette,

British metal legends Judas Priest want to wish their fans a very merry Christmas.

They did so by sharing some of the best news Priest fans could hope for.

In the band’s Christmas message, Judas Priest confirmed that a new album is on tap in 2014. 

Judas Priest’s last musical release was 2008′s “Nostradamus.”

In August, Priest finished writing its new album. It’s the first with new guitarist Richie Faulkner since he replaced K.K. Downing.

“It’s heavy. It’s something we think our Priest fans will be thrilled with,” vocalist Rob Halford told Billboard about Priest’s 17th album.

“We know we have a reputation to maintain, and we know we have to deliver something really strong and solid. The album is going to be full of all the great things you love about Judas Priest — I don’t think I can say anything more than that without being hung, drawn and quartered.”

Judas Priest posted the following message Sunday on its website:

We wish all of our fans a great Christmas and a very metal New Year!

We will be releasing a new album sometime in 2014 so stay tuned……!!
