Judas Priest Plan New Album Next Year

(RockAAA) Despite being on the road for the band's farewell world tour, Judas Priest will have a new album ready in 2012, according to lead throat Rob Halford.

In a new interview with Billboard.com, Halford says that he and guitarist Glenn Tipton "began writing new music early on this year, before we went out on the road. We have about 12 or 14 tracks completely mapped out, four of which have been recorded and mixed and are ready to go… so the good news is that there will be a brand new Priest record next year."

Halford adds that the group is leaving some room for new guitarist Richie Faulkner, who replaced the retired K.K. Downing for the current Epitaph World Tour, "to join in and make contributions as well." But he's confident that won't change the overall tenor of the album.
