Judas Priest’s Richie Faulkner On Upcoming Solo Album: “It’s A Bit More Bluesy”

During a recent interview with Guitar World, Judas Priest’s Richie Faulkner talked a bit about his upcoming solo album. According to him, the new material is “a bit more bluesy.”

Faulkner said the following:

“I’d like to do it more as a band thing. I wouldn’t want it to be called Richie Faulkner’s Rainbow. I worked on a project with a few people during the pandemic and we’re in talks at the moment with labels. I don’t want to give too much away, but when the pandemic hit I thought maybe it’s time to get a batch of songs and get them into shape and put them out.”

He also added:

“It’s always hard to talk about your stuff without crawling up your own ass. I think it’s heavy, but it’s not as ‘metal.’ It’s a bit more bluesy. You can hear that it’s coming from a guitarist in Priest, but it’s enough of a departure to sound like something outside of the band. There’s some [Jimi] Hendrix references in there and stuff that’s a bit more groove-oriented.”
