There's at least one good thing coming for all of us in 2014, and that's a brand spankin' new Judas Priest album.

Recently, the band posted a message on their website stating that the new album will be released "sometime" in 2014, which leads me to believe it'll probably be a little later than sooner.

As far as the material on the album itself, legendary frontman Rob Halford claims that, frankly, "It's heavy." There's some good news. Heavy is good. We like heavy.

No details on the album title or how much material will be on it, but when that hits the airwaves, we'll let you know.
