Judas Priest announced during their concert at the Power Trip festival their new album “Invincible Shield” that will be out next March 8. This Friday 13, the band released “Panic Attack”, the first single of the upcoming record.

The complete tracklist still wasn’t revealed by the band that is formed by Rob Halford (Vocals), Ian Hill (Bass), Scott Travis (Drums), Richie Faulkner (Guitar), Andy Sneap (Guitarist – Touring) and Glenn Tipton (Guitarist – Studio and occasionally plays live). Their most recent album was “Firepower” released in 2018 and “Invincible Shield” will be their 19th studio record. It was produced once again by Andy Sneap, who became their touring guitarist after Tipton’s forced retirement due to Parkinson’s disease.

Hear the new Judas Priest song “Panic Attack”:

“Panic Attack” lyrics

“The clamour and the clatter of incensed keys
Can bring a nation to its knees
On the wings of a lethal icon
Bird of prey”

It’s a sign of the times when bedlam rules
When the masses condone pompous fools
And the scales of justice
Tip in disarray

Panic Attack Panic Attack

Matters of fact fall on deaf ears
While the bitter mobs ramp up their fears
Go creeping round those corridors of power

As the dead heads gladly suffer sins
While the euthanising then begins
The clock is ticking down to doomsday hour

Panic Attack Panic Attack

Alien nations gleam
Cybertronic schemes
Fibre optic mass hypnotic
Wild neurotic memes

Cynicism greed what you’re fed
Disconnecting from the world wide web

It don’t matter about your choice
Cause all you’ve got is an empty voice
And there’s no way left to tell what’s right from wrong

There’s still time left to do what’s right
Eliminate those parasites
And force your mind amidst the angry throng

Panic Attack Panic Attack
Disconnect the system

Panic Attack Panic Attack
Euthanise the brain

Panic Attack Panic Attack
Blind synthetic wisdom

Panic Attack Panic Attack
Digitally criminally insane

Panic Attack Panic Attack”
