"Firepower" is the upcoming eighteenth studio album by British heavy metal band JUDAS PRIEST. It is the first studio album since 1988's "Ram It Down" to be produced by Tom Allom, and the first one with Andy Sneap as co-producer. A music video was made for "Lightning Strike", see it below. "Firepower" will be released on March 9.
Halford stated about "Lightning Strike": "To me, the overall concept of this song is to use the element of a lightning strike to pull away and tear apart at an individual, at a body of people, maybe an organization, maybe an administration, that is kind of leading you, or leading us, into potentially a destructive place. You're kind of spinning that effect round, and you have the right to react and to do something about it. So that, in essence, is what this song is all about."
The North American leg of the "Firepower" tour will kick off on March 13 in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania and will wrap on May 1 in San Antonio, Texas. Support on the trek will come from SAXON and BLACK STAR RIDERS.
