Judas Priest Announces New Album Invincible Shield At Power Trip Festival

Heavy Metal icons Judas Priest announced their new studio album, Invincible Shield, during a headline show at the Power Trip Festival in California. Priest were a late addition to the festival after Ozzy Osbourne had to pull out, but their set was a triumph, with Glenn Tipton joining for the three-song encore of Metal Gods, Breaking the Law and Living After Midnight.

Invincible Shield, set to be released on 8 March 2024 via Epic Records, was introduced to an audience of 200,000 fans at the festival. The first single from the album, Panic Attack, will be released on 13 October 2023. Pre-orders for Invincible Shield can be made here.
