Judas Priest will release their 19th studio album ‘Invincible Shield’ on Friday 8th March 2024.
The British heavy metal legends announced their new record as they took to the stage at Power Trip festival at Empire Polo Club in Indio, California last night (7th October) where they shared the bill with AC/DC.
After Black Sabbath’s ‘War Pigs’ was played as the intro music to Judas Priest’s, an image was displayed on the video screens announcing ‘The Invincible Shield.’
‘Invincible Shield’ is Judas Priest’s first full-length record since March 2018’s critically lauded ‘Firepower.’
No track-listing for ‘Invincible Shield’ has been released yet, however the album is available to pre-order in a variety of formats and bundles from Judas Priest’s website now.
Prices range from £7.99 for an ‘Invincible Shield’ cassette through to £129.99 for the complete bundle.
Despite announcing the album, Judas Priest didn’t perform any new tracks during their 18-song set at Power Trip.
The final three songs of the set – ‘Metal Gods’, ‘Breaking the Law’ and ‘Living After Midnight’ – saw guitarist Glenn Tipton join them on stage.
Still a full member of Judas Priest, Glenn Tipton retired from touring five years ago due to his Parkinson’s disease, however he still makes guest appearances at select Judas Priest tour dates.
Coinciding with the release of ‘Invincible Shield’, Judas Priest play a six-date UK & Ireland arena tour next March with very special guests Saxon and Uriah Heep.
