IRON MAIDEN Launch Video Trailer For Next Series Of Vinyl Album Reissues
May 11, 2017, 12 days ago
Parlophone Records will follow 2014’s reissue of the first eight Iron Maiden albums, which spanned the 1980s, with twelve brand new pressings of albums from the period 1990 - 2015 in heavyweight 180g black vinyl. Watch a new video trailer below.
Unlike the 1980’s reissues which were cut from the original analogue master tapes, the audio on these releases has been cut from the high resolution remasters of 2015 when the Maiden catalogue was digitally upgraded. They will be packaged in identical artwork to the initial vinyl releases.
The records will be released chronologically across a three month period:
May 19th: Collector's Box / No Prayer For The Dying / Fear Of The Dark / The X Factor / Virtual XI
June 23rd: Brave New World / Rock In Rio (Live) / Dance Of Death / A Matter Of Life And Death
July 21st: Death On The Road (Live) / Flight 666 (Live) / The Final Frontier / En Vivo! (Live)
As a bonus, the first two albums (No Prayer For The Dying / Fear Of The Dark) will also be made available in an exclusive Collector’s Box sized to house all 12 albums with additional space for fans to insert the latest Maiden studio album The Book Of Souls, which was released on triple black vinyl in 2015. The Collector’s Box will be a strictly limited edition and available while stocks last.
These high quality, black vinyls comprised of eight studio albums together with a specially selected choice of four live recordings from this period, completes the Iron Maiden album reissues series and offers Maiden fans the opportunity to own the band’s entire studio album legacy on vinyl simultaneously for the very first time.
Iron Maiden are currently on the UK leg of The Book Of Souls Tour 2017. On board The Bus Of Souls, Planet Rock’s Paul Anthony caught up with the band’s legendary manager, Rod Smallwood, and got the lowdown on touring with the world's biggest metal band, how they're beating the touts, and Maiden's future plans.
