Judas Priest man Richie Faulkner appeared on Ryan Roxie’s In The Trenches podcast recently and revealed that he has been building a stockpile of solo material.

“I haven't really spoken much about it publicly,” says Faulkner. “But there is something I've kind of been [putting] together during the COVID period… I've used that time to kind of get [together] some songs I've been working on… polish them up, get some people together that I respect in the music business and record some stuff.”
