Den Headz, the new JUDAS PRIEST song “Dragonaut”, along with footage of guitarist Richie Faulkner, discussing the cut, is now available via YouTube HERE.

“Dragonaut” is taken from JUDAS PRIEST’s forthcoming studio album, “Redeemer Of Souls”, which will be released in North America on July 8 (pushed up a week from the originally announced July 15) via Epic Records. The CD’s title track was made available for purchase via iTunes and other digital service providers on April 29.

Speaking to the “Trunk Nation” show, which airs on SiriusXM’s Hair Nation, JUDAS PRIEST singer Rob Halford stated about “Redeemer Of Souls”: “When we finished [the] ‘Epitaph’ [tour], we just got so buzzed from the fans and the reaction wherever we went. Just to put the ‘Epitaph’ tour together, which was we tried to put a song from every record into the show, and we were living in the life of JUDAS PRIEST, all those decades, in one show, night after night on the world trek, and I think that really did something to us eternally; as musicians, it should do when you tour. So we realized that this next record really had to be really strong, full of energy, because it’s relentless, the tracks are relentless. The energy that you feel off ‘Redeemer Of Souls’ is replicated in that direction time and time and time again.”

Asked whether the members of JUDAS PRIEST still feel good about “Nostradamus” six years after the album’s release, Halford said: “If you look at bands of longevity, like PRIEST, you see the trail of music that we’ve left, I don’t think we could have probably made as great a record as we have with ‘Redeemer Of Souls’ if we didn’t have ‘Nostradamus’ as a reference point. It’s a stepping stone to the next place.
