The trio, who have been releasing music since 2017, consist of vocalist Mercury (who was known as Water when he played bass for Ghost), keyboardist Salt (formerly known as Ghost keyboardist Air) and programmer/keyboardist Sulfur.
Priest’s new label Cleopatra Records has confirmed that the band’s next album will be released in 2022 and has been produced by guitarist Simon Söderberg, who also worked as a producer and engineer on Ghost’s 2010 debut album ‘Opus Eponymous’.
“Signing with such a legendary label like Cleopatra will probably be the biggest step in our career,” Priest said in a statement. “With great knowledge of the genre we’re in, we can’t think of a better match for Priest. Our next album is by far the best yet and we can’t wait to unleash it a wider and more diverse audience.”

Speaking about ‘A Signal In The Noise’, a spokesperson for Priest added: “‘A Signal in the Noise’ is the first glimpse of a darker era in Priest’s timeline.
“The industrial rhythms and melodies paint a vast canvas of an apocalyptic future. To accompany the track, we needed a gritty video with an urban feeling. We are very excited to show it to you!”
