The band hope to do some recording later this year
Guitarist Richie Faulkner, who replaced KK Downing in the band last year, tells Gibson that the band are looking to carry on recording new material after the summer after some initial recording sessions last year.
"We are working on a new album. Glenn [Tipton, guitar] and Rob [Halford, vocals] started writing material early 2011 before I joined the band, and I got together with them earlier this year to work on some more tracks with them. We're getting together again after the summer to do some more writing and if all goes to plan, we might have the album out early next year. The ideas we have so far are sounding very strong and very PRIEST, so watch this space!"
The album would be a follow-up to 2008's double concept album Nostradamus.
