Rob Halford Resurfacing

December 1 [7:55 EDT] -- Rob Halford will soon be resurfacing. Early next year, expect a debut album called "Voyeurs" by his new band, Two. The former Judas Priest front screamer will also be making a rare live appearance December 20 at the Mason Jar in his adopted home base of Phoenix, Arizona. The club performance is a benefit for a local child crisis center.

"Voyeurs" is scheduled for release on Trent Reznor's nothing label in February according to a Halford employee. It was recorded earlier this year in Vancouver by producer Bob Marlette and mostly mixed in that same city by regular Reznor console cohort, Dave "The Rave" Ogilvie. Reznor, who oversaw the production from his home in New Orleans, will be credited as Executive Producer. The majority of the song credits go to Halford, Marlette and Two guitarist, John Lowery. James Wooley is credited with programming and keyboards, Sid Riggs played drums.

Halford left Judas Priest in the early 1990s and he's been trying

to distance himself from his old mates ever since. He initially fronted Fight, then started up a version of his current band, originally called 'Gimp.' That band played just a couple of shows almost two years ago before heading into the studio. They were just recently renamed Two.
