Bassist Ian Hill says the band have written an entire album\'s worth of new material
In an interview with Rockpages Hill revealed that the band had been writing and recording while they were not on the road.
"We have already written an album's worth of material. Three songs are properly recorded and roughly mixed. I think that the record company might put out something, just a bit of something so as to let the fans know of what’s coming along.
"It's gonna be a great album and it's gonna carry on from where Angel of Retribution left off. We got Nostradamus out of our system and now we are heading towards classic Priest metal....the screams, the fast, the slow and the heavy! A little bit of everything. A big "thank you" for all that we are doing goes out to the fans."
