Watch Judas Priest’s video for blistering new track Lightning Strike
Judas Priest launch video for their brand new single Lightning Strike - and reveal the tracklist for upcoming album Firepower
Judas Priest have released the full video for their new track Lightning Strike.
They previously shared a short video of the song, which will feature on their upcoming studio album Firepower, and made it available to stream via Spotify.
Now they’ve launched the video, showcasing the second track on what will be their 18th record.
Revolver report that Firepower was produced by Tom Allom, who was behind the desk for the band’s output between 1979-1988, along with Andy Sneap.
Frontman Rob Halford tells them: “Tom Allom has got this classic metal thing and Andy is a bit more of a ‘modern metal producer,’ but his thinking is a little bit different to Tom's.
“And I think to get this balance between that classic old school metal to what Andy's world is was just a remarkable coalescence.”
Bassist Ian Hill adds: "Tom Allom has been with us since 1979, so his knowledge of ourselves and our music in general is immense."
Priest have also revealed the final Firepower tracklist, which can be found below, along with the cover art and the band's upcoming tour dates.
