Judas Priest guitarist Richie Faulkner is working on his debut solo album. Faulkner revealed the news to In The Trenches With Ryan Roxie, saying he's been working on the effort throughout the pandemic and is currently looking for a label to put it out.
"I haven't really spoken much about it publicly, but there is something I've kind of been [putting] together during the COVID period. I mean, I know we're still going through it but there's been a lot of downtime. So I've used that time to kind of get some songs I've been working on, get them together, polish them up, get some people together that I respect in the music business and record some stuff. And I haven't spoken a lot about it. It's in the process of being finalized, and we're looking for deals and stuff. We're looking for deals at the moment, we're looking for record labels, so I don't wanna get too far ahead of myself."
Faulkner later added that the material is certainly rooted in what he does with Judas Priest, but "it's different enough to be its own monster." No word on who the solo album will feature outside Faulkner.
