Bassist Ian Hill of Judas Priest spoke to U.K.’s Classic Rock magazine about the band’s progress writing the new album.
Ian Hill said:
“A lot of the material is already done, but with just six people allowed to be together at one time,
”I don’t know when we can record it. We will probably get the anniversary celebrations out of the way, and then, when there are no distractions, make a start on it.
”Some great songs were left over from ‘Firepower’ and we might use a few of those. They weren’t omitted as inferior, they just didn’t fit ‘Firepower’.”
Ian confirmed that Judas will work again with the British producer Andy Sneap, the same one that produced ”Firepower”:
“All being well, that’s the plan. Tom and Andy did a tremendous job with ‘Firepower’. We’re in good shape with the next album.”
