Judas Priest Has “Practically a Complete Album” Written… with Glenn Tipton!
Judas Priest has “practically a complete album written” and waiting to be recorded, Rob Halford says.
The singer tells NME:
“As far as Priest goes, we already have a strong selection of songs — practically a complete album — to go when we’re able to reconvene at some point. But we need to do a lot more work on it before we even get to the full production stage yet.”
Fans will also surely be pleased to learn that guitarist Glenn Tipton, who was forced to leave Judas Priest in 2018 as a result of Parkinson’s Disease, is still involved in the band’s writing process.
Guitarist Richie Faulkner tells SiriusXM’s Trunk Nation with Eddie Trunk:
“We started on the new record earlier in the year — me, Glenn, and Rob — and we all went home for the summer. We were all gonna reconvene later on. ‘Cause we really wanna get back together and do it all together — that’s the way the magic happened on Firepower — and we just haven’t had the chance to be able to do that. But as soon as we can, and as soon as we get back to some sort of normality, we’ll get back in the studio and continue with it.”
While Tipton remains in the U.K., Halford lives in Phoenix and Faulkner in Nashville.
