Judas Priest Finishes Work On New Album

Judas Priest have finished their first new album since 2008's Nostradamus is done says fronter Rob Halford. Speaking with Loudwire, the singer says he's already had his first listen to the finished product:

"The Priest album is finished. It's done. I just heard from the mastering sessions that [guitarist] Glenn [Tipton is] looking over in England, it's finished. It's done."

He added that the LP, which marks 40 years the band has been together, was a labor of love:

"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."

Halford did not say when fans might expect to see the LP in stores.
