In a recent interview with Eddie Trunk on “Trunk Nation” on SiriusXM Radio, Priest frontman Rob Halford had this to say about the new album and the songwriting process, "Yeah, everything's coming together great. We're excited to be making new material.
"As you know, whenever we go out to play, we like to say that we're there for not only the reason to see our wonderful fans again but to show off what we're doing. And that's what we're doing right now — we're hard at work, and it's all coming together great."
Halford went on to add there's "no set time table" for the release of the new album, stating ""There is no rush. We feel great. We're very happy, we're very confident, we're very excited. And so, yeah, we're working with our label and with promoters, and there's a lot of stuff going on behind the scenes."
