Judas Priest to reenter the studio

British NWOBHM stalwarts Judas Priest having been doing really well in their retirement. After the release of 2014′s Redeemer of Souls frontman Rob Halford announced yesterday that the band is planning on heading back into the studio to continue to rage against the machine.

Halford said in an interview with Sixx Sense:

“We’ll be out for the rest of this tour until Christmas, take a break, and then more than likely in the studio early of 2016 and see how quickly we can turn this around. It won’t be a rush job, because we treasure everything we do – but I think that the mindset is there to make this record efficiently, and hopefully have it out there as soon as we can.”

Halford has also been encouraged by the reaction to Redeemer of Souls:

“That really motivated us to crack the whip and get on with making the next record pretty quickly. The clock is ticking. We can’t afford to wait three years, or five years now, to make the record. Who wants to go home and sit down for a year? And especially while the band is buzzing and the energy’s there creatively. We had so much stuff happening in the studio we had to put blocks on because we were on a time schedule with the label. So we do have some stuff kind of left over from Redeemer of Souls.”
