Rob Halford Says This Is The Best Time For Judas Priest Right Now
Speaking to Radio host Terrie Carr, Halford was in high spirits as he discussed his desire to 'keep the metal party going.' He says: "Well, we wanna keep the momentum going. For certain bands, it's the way that the whole business of being in a band and making music works. I mean, we were out [on tour] for almost two years, I think, playing so many shows in so many countries and travelling so many thousands of miles.
"And, you see, generally when you do that, then you take some time off to decompress and think about all the wonderful things you have experienced. And then generally you take a little bit of time and then you ramp up to go back out on the road again.
"But I've gotta tell you, this is the best time for Priest right now. We're just having a blast, and we want to keep the metal party going, and what better way to do that than to bring on some new metal songs."
Guitarist Richie Faulkner agrees the band are riding the crest of a wave as he reveals their shared excitement for the future. "From my point of view, the band seems to be energized and we get along well and we're talking about the future and we're talking about new ideas," he said. Read more here.
