Judas Priest: "Gut Feeling Tells Me We'll See Something Next Year," Says Rob Halford
Rob Halford tells Billboard.com that the group, which recently
wrapped its Epitaph World Tour, is "ramping things up to get
back into full writing and recording mode" back in England. He
and guitarist Glenn Tipton have "a tremendous amount of material
in the vaults already, and they expect new guitarist Richie Faulkner,
who replaced co-founder KK Downing in 2011, to make a contribution as
we were proceeding on this world tour he was taking this little
mini-studio into his dressing room and we could hear him riffing
away," Halford recalls. "It's going to be really thrilling
moment to get together in a new writing dimension, Glenn and myself
and Richie, putting all of these ideas together. We'll see what we
can do over the next couple of months, look at everything, lay it all
out and then start the hard work of picking out the best material."
adds that his "gut feeling tells me we'll see something next
year" but doesn't want to commit to a firm timetable. "I'm
of the attitude it'll be ready when it's ready," he explains. "I
don't think we're going to slack off. We're determined to do a lot of
work and be just as dedicated as we've always been and take a lot of
care and attention with all the songs. We're not going to just bang
this one out, so to speak."
