    ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) -- Legendary heavy metal vocalist Rob Halford has reunited with Judas Priest, the singer told CNN Friday, speaking by phone from his Birmingham, England, home.

    The band, one of heavy metal's most popular groups and a leader in the late-'70s wave of British metal bands, plans to release a full-length studio album in the spring of 2004. Judas Priest will also embark on a global concert tour, the band's first with Halford in more than a decade, the group's management team said.

    "Rob Halford, along with band members K.K. Downing, Glenn Tipton and Ian Hill, felt a heightened level of intensity," a member of the management team told CNN, speaking of recent meetings with the four. "Rob said they were all very excited and they have re-established their friendship. These guys grew up together from their early 20s on, so this means a lot to them personally and professionally."

    Tipton also told CNN the band has reunited.

    Judas Priest is best known for its songs "Breaking the Law" and "You've Got Another Thing Comin' " and the albums "Screaming for Vengeance" and "Defenders of the Faith."

    Work on the new album is scheduled to begin in October.

    The original band members have been re-establishing their personal and professional relationships since 1999, along the way sparking reunion rumors.

    "Rob and the other Judas Priest members are so happy this is all a go," the management team member said. "We've worked so hard over the last four years to make this happen."

    "We've been through a lot together," said Tipton. "Priest is known for its live music, so what we're looking for to is playing again."

    "It's difficult to put it into words," added Halford, referring to the emotions of the reunion.

    Judas Priest formed in the gritty, working-class city of Birmingham in 1970. By the late '70s, they were one of the biggest bands in Britain, and had great success in the United States in the 1980s.

    Halford left the band in the early '90s in a bitter split. He recorded four studio albums and released a live album without Judas Priest.

    The band has continued to perform as Judas Priest, with Ripper Owens' vocals, since Halford's departure. The 2001 movie "Rock Star" was partly based on Owens' experience as a fan and leader of a Priest tribute band who later joined his heroes.

    Shame the mighty reunited true Judas Priest couldn't have been Iced Earth's Replacement.

    IMHO they'd have been a far wiser choice as headliners then Twisted Sister

    I´m very happy about this news. Even though I think Ripper is a great vocalist!! Good luck to Rob and also all the best for Ripper!!

    I agree with Celtic Eagle, but I think it would have been impossible to caught them for Wacken this year!! Maybe the next one!! hehehehe!!

    true, they should reunite much earlier so they could be the replacement...
    but it sounds good for a 2004 headliner also:)
