Heavy metal fans, rejoice! Judas Priest has unveiled the name and release date for its long-awaited new studio album, Redeemer of Souls , which will hit stores on July 15.
If that's not enough, the metal gods also have unleashed a video featuring audio of the album's full title track that's been posted at the band's official YouTube channel . "Redeemer of Souls" is a driving rock song powered by singer Rob Halford 's soaring vocals and the blazing twin-guitar riffing of Glenn Tipton and the latest addition to the group's lineup, Richie Faulkner .
Redeemer of Souls is the follow-up to Judas Priest's 2008 concept album, Nostradamus . The new record will be the first from the band since founding guitarist K.K. Downing exited the group in April 2011.
