Bassist Ian Hill and his musical brethren in Judas Priest will soon be bringing out the heavy ammunition for a new album, and they’ve decided to share a preview of the coming musical onslaught with fans via a new YouTube teaser.
The band has released a snippet of their song “Firepower,” which will be the title track of an upcoming album of the same name slated for March of 2018. (LISTEN BELOW.) The new release will be their first new album since 2014’s Redeemer of Souls.
If the rampaging riffs on the 15 second preview are any indication of what to expect, metalheads are in for a hell of a good time next year.
Judas Priest is also set to embark on a North American tour next spring, which will kick off March 13 in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania. (SEE CONFIRMED DATES BELOW.)
