You can listen to “Blind Leading the Blind” now via digital outlets and watch its accompanying video streaming now on YouTube.

“Blind Leading the Blind” will appear on the debut Elegant Weapons album, Horns for a Halo, due out May 26. The record also features contributions from Priest drummer Scott Travis and Pantera bassist Rex Brown. It was produced by touring Priest guitarist Andy Sneap.

“[Elegant Weapons is] a mix of Jimi Hendrix, Priest, Sabbath, solo Ozzy and Black Label Society, but with a lot of melody, sort of old school and modern at once if that makes any sense, and actually down-tuned a whole step,” Faulkner says. “There are a lot of guitar solos and the songs are on the heavier side. And even though there’s a lot of melody, it’s still going to shake your bones.”
