As Rob Halford so often says on stage, The Priest Is Back! UK midlands metal gods Judas Priest have announced the details of their latest album, and we don’t have long to wait!
Titled Firepower, Judas Priest’s latest record will be landing on shelves physical and digital near you on the 9th of March 2018, thanks to Columbia Records. Firepower is the first Judas Priest album since 2014’s Redeemer Of Souls and their eighteenth studio album in total. The first single from the album, Lightning Strike, is available to stream now, with the music video for the track promised for later today.
The full track listing and album artwork for Firepower are also available, and can be seen below:
2. Lightning Strike
3. Evil Never Dies
4. Never The Heroes
6. Children of the Sun
8. Rising From Ruins
9. Flame Thrower
11. Traitors Gate
12. No Surrender
13. Lone Wolf
14. Sea of Red
It seems as though Judas Priest’s previous declaration of no more “full world tours” has also been put to one side, as Firepower is set to receive a full world tour to support the album, kicking off in the USA on the 13th of March. The Priest will headline the opening night of the 2018 Bloodstock Open Air Festival in the UK, the first chance to hear some of the new material on home turf (along with an army of the classics).
More news from the Judas Priest camp on Firepower as and when we have it!
