The 11 tracks highlight exactly how the band, 50-plus years in, is at the height of their powers in 2024.

The Associated Press has stated that Invincible Shield finds Judas Priest rocking faster and harder than ever before” while Blabbermouth said it “could be the most consistent and flawless album this band have made in decades. Metal Injection has declared it “the best record of 2024 thus far,” while Stereogum proclaimed that it “feels like a victory lap for the band.” As Ultimate Classic Rock put it, “this is Judas Priest operating at near hall-of-fame levels."

In honor of the legendary band’s 19th studio album, Judas Priest will embark on a world tour this year, the European leg kicks off in Glasgow next Monday, March 11th before taking on North America in April and May.
