Judas Priest are calling their upcoming 18th studio album Firepower. They’ve also announced a series of supporting shows for next year.

The appropriately titled Firepower 2018 Tour is set to begin in March. A complete list of dates, cities and venues is below. Pre-sales will begin on Wednesday at 10AM local time; check with venues for additional information.

Firepower, due in early 2018, follows 2014’s Top 10 Billboard hit Redeemer of Souls. This new project was co-produced by Andy Sneap and Tom Allom. An engineer on Black Sabbath‘s first three albums, Allom has a history with Judas Priest going back to the ’70s. Their work together includes British Steel, Screaming for Vengeance and Defenders of the Faith.

Allom’s most recent project with Judas Priest was the 2009 concert recording A Touch of Evil. Sneap has worked as a mixer and engineer for Megadeth, Slayer and Saxon, among others.
