What a rollercoaster year it's been for Iron Maiden. At the top of the year, they revealed Bruce Dickinson was undergoing treatment for tongue cancer. Bruce is a fighter though, and last month, we got the great news that Dickinson is now cancer-free and the band could move forward with their plans to release a new album.
The band have been teasing new music since Christmas of last year and today the band officially announced they will be releasing their 16th studio album, The Book Of Souls on September 4th worldwide. Eddie is looking as grim as ever. Here is the full press release:.
A lot of the songs were actually written while we were there in the studio and we rehearsed and recorded them straight away while they were still fresh, and I think that immediacy really shows in the songs, they have almost a live feel to them, I think.
We were delighted to discover the same magical vibe is still alive and very much kicking there! So we immediately felt at home and the ideas just started flowing.
