In a recent interview conducted by May The Rock Be With You in Australia, ROB HALFORD stated:
"The fact is, PRIEST is on a roll and we're on fire with this music and the reaction,
the support from our fans and everybody is what gives you that thought of,
What would happen if we wrote another song? Then another song? Then an album?
We might as well go out and tour again.' It's a lot of things combined that really still keep us active and keep us to what's next to be done.
Each PRIEST album, if you think about it, is by definition, has its own character and sound.
British Steel is light years away from Painkiller, which is light years away from Stained Class, which is light years away from Sad Wings Of Destiny and Sin After Sin and on and on and on.
That's part of the intriguing part of JUDAS PRIEST.
We're always looking for a different kind of tilt to what we're about as a band in the next project of songs we're going to release. We're already thinking about that now. We had a meeting in the U.K. just before we came to Australia about planning the foreseeable future and I would say there's definitely a new PRIEST album on the way. "
Their last album FIREPOWER was released in 2018 and we can't wait for the PRIEST's next one.
The main question now is, when ???
