It’s the end of 2014. Are we the only ones who can’t wait for 2015?
2014 finally saw the end of Iron Maiden’s most recent retro cycle. Since the start of the Maiden England World Tour in 2012 we’ve had reissues of the 1980s catalog on picture disc and 180g vinyl, we’ve finally had a proper DVD and CD release of Maiden England ’88, and we’ve seen the first ever Maiden tour to span three calendar years.
Now it’s over, and the band have spent the last few months of 2014 recording a brand new album in Paris with producer Kevin Shirley. Band and management have kept a tight lid on the project, but we’ve stayed up-to-date with speculation in this post, if you want to catch up.
Anyway, we’ll soon know more about the new album and whatever touring plans are being lined up for 2015. So far, the signals from the band amount to this illustration for the new Fan Club magazine:
We will keep up with Maiden in 2015 and head out on tour when we have the chance. Meanwhile we will keep adding features to all our categories. The in-depth FEATURE FRIDAY will return with nerdy action including bits about the period after the 80s (yes, the 90s!), we’ll dig more stuff out FROM THE VAULT, we’ll keep discussing what’s BEST & WORST about all things Maiden, and there will be more FUN FACTS coming your way. If you click on these links, you’ll find what’s already there!
Oh, and if you’d like to write for us, about whatever Maiden’s on your mind, don’t hesitate to get in touch! We’re easy to reach through our Facebook page.
Enjoy your holidays!
Iron Maiden’s gonna get ya in 2015!
