Halford Guitarist Talks About Releasing New Album

Halford/PainMuseum guitarist "Metal" Mike Chlasciak recently did an interview with Live-Metal.net during which he discussed a variety of topics including whether or not fans can expect a new album from Halford. Some excerpts from the interview are available to read below.

Live-Metal.Net: Any idea on when we might some activity on a new release from Halford?
Chlasciak: "Rob's band, the musicians are quite prolific, and probably some of the most professional guys that I have ever been on stage with. There is so much material that has been accumulated over the past few years. It is just a matter of wrapping it all up and cutting out the songs that are not as good as the others, mixing it and then releasing it."

Live-Metal.Net: Well it sounds like we definitely have something to look forward to at least!
Chlasciak: "Yes, certainly. As you can imagine, we have to be very respectful to Rob's commitment to Judas Priest because we all know what that band means to him. We would all like to have one more stab at going out and playing some new music. We all feel, and this is including Rob, that the Halford band was a little more than just a solo artist hiring a bunch of dudes to play cover songs. We really have something to say as a band. It was just a little unfortunate, in my eyes, to release an album like Crucible and not have a fair shot at promoting it. That's all right and it's all cool and we have all been busy but when the day comes that we all get together and play as a unit, it is going to be really fun! Not only for us, but hopefully for the fans as well! It seems like there are a lot of them out there."
