Judas Priest Working On New Music

Judas Priest are on a bit of a hiatus at the moment, but guitarist Richie Faulkner said in an interview with Making Hard Rock Look Easy (see video below) that the band are recording some demos right now and are aiming to head back into the studio at the beginning of 2017 to start hammering out tracks to make a new album.

If you’re thinking a new tour is around the corner, too, you might want to pump the breaks.  Faulkner says the band won’t be touring until 2018.
