Rob Halford on Judas Priest's "Evil Never Dies," Fighting Against Divisiveness

We recently sat down with Rob Halford to talk about some of the concepts that influenced Judas Priest's raging 18th album Firepower, which will be released on March 9. Watch the singer trace the roots of "Evil Never Dies" back to his childhood growing up in post–World War II Britain — which was still rationing food because of "one man that created world chaos" — and connect the themes of that track, and "Lightning Strike," to the divisive, fear-based tactics of today's politicians.
