Metal gods Judas Priest
have begun unveiling fresh bits and pieces regarding their upcoming album, kicking off with a mysterious artwork.
Apart from the dark image, the band also shared a major announcement - new single coming soon. "The wait is almost over!"
the official post
reads. "Only a few more hours until we reveal a track from our new album!"
The group is also inviting fans to check their website on a daily basis for new updates.
Last month, singer Rob Halford
confirmed that the new record is "absolutely finished"
and should be released in the near future. "The record is finished; it's absolutely finished as of today,"
he told Artisan News
. "It's a relief. It's a relief because whenever Priest makes an album, like any band, you put your heart and soul into it; it is that typical 'blood, sweat and tears.'"
The band's latest studio effort, "Nostradamus
," saw its release in June 2008 via Epic Records.
