Judas Priest has been diligently writing the follow-up to their 2018 album Firepower, and according to bassist Ian Hill it's been going really well! Hill said in an interview with The Morning Call that the band has an "album or two" of material for the new record, and that COVID has been holding up the process.

"There's at least an album or two of new material. The big problem has been COVID over the last year. We haven't been able to get together, you know? Some of the guys live in the States and a couple of others live in Britain, so we can't really get together to rehearse. It's just opening up now, just easing a bit now, which is a bonus."

Hill added that the band has pooled their ideas, but not being able to get into the same room has been hard.

"You can send [song ideas] backwards and forward, but it's such a messy process. It's much easier to be there in the room with everybody and them tell you to your face, 'That's a load of crap, start again.' Or 'We love it, don't touch a note.' It's much easier and it's more real doing it that way, as well. You pick up off everybody's vibe anyway. So it's preferable to do it face-to-face, when we're all together."

Judas Priest will hit the road in a few days for their 50 Heavy Metal Years tour for North America with Sabaton. The below dates also include all the band's festival appearances.
