Judas Priest release new music video + announce massive tour

Judas Priest have released a new song called “Lightning Strike.” You can check out the music video for the single above. The song comes from their upcoming eighteenth studio album, Firepower, which will be released on March 9th. Pre-orders for the album can be found here.

It will be their first full-length studio album since 2014’s Redeemer of Souls. Judas Priest fans will be excited to know that the band joined forces with producer Tom Allom. Allom, of course, worked with the band on all of the band’s records from 1979 to 1988.
