Judas Priest founder and frontman of the band, Rob Halford, made a new interview with the Brazilian YouTube channel Kazagastao last week and talked about the untold details about the band’s upcoming album.
As you may already follow The Metal God, he recently released his autobiography named ‘Confess: The Autobiography’ and it was named one of the best music books of 200 by Kirkus Reviews and Rolling Stone. The iconic frontman celebrates five decades of his heavy metal story with that book and it’s now available on Amazon via Hardcover and Kindle Edition for the price of $21.50 and $14.99.
In the interview, Judas Priest frontman analyzed records from his career, talked about the unforgettable shows he saw as well as what Priest doing during the self-quarantine days. Halford admitted that the band members could not see each other for a long-time, and they are eager to start rehearsals for the upcoming shows.
Here is what Rob told in his last interview:
“Now the world is opening up, and we need to get back on the road. Because, God, we are so missing our fans. We miss seeing our fans. We miss seeing each other [in person]. We haven’t seen each other for over a year. We do a lot of Zooms, but we haven’t seen each other forever. So we can’t wait to be a band together and start rehearsing and so forth and get ready for some shows.
We’ve got a bunch of great new ideas for tracks, lots of really strong demos. It’s gonna be a very potent record, ’cause we know we have to follow ‘Firepower’. But I’ve gotta tell you, ‘Firepower’ turned the metal up for all of us in the band; it really gave us a tremendous boost this far on.”
The Metal God continued:
“And so, as a result of that, we carried all the energy from ‘Firepower’, we carried all the energy from the shows, and we took that with us when we went into the writing sessions last March — not this March, but last March — and you can sense it in the writing. So we already have some extremely potent, strong material.
So, the next, what? I would say at least the next three to five years, it’s Priest, Priest, Priest. It’s gonna be another really special, important moment for Priest. So that’s on the way in the not-too-distant metal future.”
