Ian Hill Says Judas Priest Have “At Least An Album Or Two Of New Material” Written

During a recent interview with The Morning Call, bassist Ian Hill offered an update on the new music that Judas Priest have been working on. According to him, the band have “at least an album or two of new material” written.

Hill said the following:

“There’s at least an album or two of new material. The big problem has been COVID over the last year. We haven’t been able to get together, you know? Some of the guys live in the [United] States and a couple of others live in Britain, so we can’t really get together to rehearse. It’s just opening up now, just easing a bit now, which is a bonus.”

He also added:

“[Guitarists Richie Faulkner and Glenn Tipton] have pooled their ideas, and they sort of formulate songs out of those ideas. And when they have sort of a rough working track, myself and [drummer] Scott [Travis] get a copy of that and we’ll put our bass lines and drum patterns down and we’ll go from there.

But that’s what we haven’t been able to do. You can send them backwards and forward, but it’s such a messy process. It’s much easier to be there in the room with everybody and them tell you to your face, ‘That’s a load of crap, start again.’ Or ‘We love it, don’t touch a note.’ It’s much easier and it’s more real doing it that way, as well. You pick up off everybody’s vibe anyway. So it’s preferable to do it face-to-face, when we’re all together.”

Living Colour Begin Work On New Music

Living Colour have started working on new music. Guitarist Vernon Reid confirmed the news during a recent appearance on “Lipps Service With Scott Lipps.”

Reid said the following:

“Corey [Glover] and I started working on a song. We’ll see where that goes.”

He continued when asked about possible lyrical themes:

“We’re processing what exactly this period… ‘Cause a lot of folks, their immediate reaction, a lot of [musicians] are [writing songs about] George Floyd-type things. We’re really looking at absorbing it, because I don’t wanna just do a George Floyd hook. That situation was so traumatizing, and we wanna think that the world was shifted. And the world gets traumas every now and again. The murder of Martin Luther King was traumatizing. And eventually you get something like ‘Pride (In The Name Of Love)’ [by U2]; it’s a beautiful song. But the underlying issue and underlying problem never seems to go away. And it’s the not-going-awayness of it that’s what I would wanna talk about.”

“There’s something this litany of names, the constant litany of names [of victims of racial injustice]. Whose will the next name be is what concerns me as opposed to being stuck on a particular victim. Even though what happened to George Floyd was particularly egregious, there’s another part of the phenomenon that is where the Breonnas [Taylor] and the Ahmauds [Arbery] — and the names keep going. Lately, there was a victim; his name’s Winston Smith. And it strikes me very strongly, because Winston Smith is [also the name of] a protagonist of George Orwell’s ‘1984’. And it’s those kinds of things that are what LIVING COLOUR are gonna go; those are the kind of places we’re gonna go.”

Joe Elliott Says Def Leppard Have Written New Songs Amid The Pandemic

During a recent interview with Download festival host Kylie Olsson, Joe Elliott revealed that Def Leppard have written new songs during their coronavirus downtime. However, the singer went on to say that the band are not sure what they are going to do with the new material.

Elliot said the following:

“We have written some songs — I can’t deny that we have written some songs remotely as an exercise to see if we could, and I can announce it was very successful. What are we gonna do with those songs? That’s to be seen. We’ve gotta wait and see, because, obviously, everybody’s in different continents, in different cities and all that kind of stuff. So there’s a lot of work to be done before we get to a finished product. But we have not let the year go to waste.”

He also added the following about not needing to release full albums in today’s times:

“The industry being what it is, we’re all aware of the fact that there’s an element of the media that can’t let go of the fact that records aren’t that important anymore. And I know that’s a sad thing to say, but it’s a fact of life. Touring is massively important — way more than it was when you went out promoting records when they were important. Especially for legacy bands or whatever you wanna call ’em. Listen, I went to see THE ROLLING STONES in 1989 in case one of them died. That’s 1989. They haven’t had a death since the 1960s.

I’m aware of the fact that when you’ve got a history — whether it be THE EAGLES or FLEETWOOD MAC or any of the bands from the ’80s, like us and [IRON] MAIDEN and whoever else, we’ve got this legacy audience as well that wanna see us continue the journey, if you like. And that’s become way more important.

When we finished that [2015] album, we never really thought about making another record until we just felt the timing was right. And we always just fall into place. We’re constantly writing songs, so when it comes to piecing songs together, it’s not like they’re all absolutely brand spanking new, just written, hot-off-the-press stuff. Some of them are ideas that have been percolating for a year or two with a piece missing. And you wait and you wait and you wait, and then you have this epiphany, or one of the other guys goes, ‘Why didn’t you ask? I’ve got a bit that would fit in there perfect.’ So there’s been a lot of that going on. But that’s a constant; that’s nothing to do with coronavirus. We’ve been doing it since the ‘Def Leppard’ album came out, and we will continue to do it, whether we release an album or not. We’ve got songs in our heads.”
