Judas Priest Nearly Finished Tracking 18th Studio Album

June 5, 2017

Judas Priest have been spending much of 2017 staying busy writing and recording for their new album, which appears to be nearing completion. Producer Andy Sneap gave fans an update on the album via his Instagram account saying that the tracking process is nearly done. 

Just about done with Priest tracking. One of the most enjoyable records I've worked on in a long time, especially working along side these two. @mikeexeter @allomtom #falconfaulkner #metalgod #robhalfordlegacy #judaspriest
