“We don’t have a release date. It’s not finished. We’ve got the songs, but we’ve gotta record it. We’ve got drums down. I don’t know if that’s even been said yet. So we’re gonna try and build it up as we move through this touring cycle. But as Rob always says, it’ll be finished when it’s finished. At this point in their career, there’s no point in rushing anything, especially when we’ve waited this long through the pandemic to start doing it. It’ll be done when it’s done. But there will be another Priest record. We’ve got some great songs.”

Speaking of the direction of it, he offered:

“It’s different to ‘Firepower‘, but it’s definitely… You can hear where it’s coming from. It’s not even ‘Firepower 2‘… It’s hard to say anything these days without people getting… If I say it’s like a continuation of ‘Firepower‘, people think it’s ‘Firepower 2‘. It’s got its own character, it’s got its own legs, and we’re looking forward to releasing it on to the world when it’s done.”
