IRON MAIDEN – Eight Songs Written For New Album, Heading Into The Studio Soon
New York-based Friday Night Rocks / That Metal Show host Eddie Trunk has issued a new blog featuring a holiday update and some music news (found here). Following is an excerpt from the blog offering an update on IRON MAIDEN courtesy of drummer Nicko McBrain:
“Got a call from Maiden drummer Nicko McBrain last night (January 1st). Nicko just opened a new restaurant in Florida called Rock & Roll Ribs. Said it’s gone well and he is planning an official grand opening soon.
Nicko also told me Maiden are headed into the studio in a couple weeks to start work on a new CD. He said there was about eight songs written so far so the band would probably need to come up with a few more new songs while recording. Said the material was a little different than past albums and they were taking their time with the recording schedule. New CD probably won’t come out until 2011 however a good chance of some Maiden live shows over the summer. I’ll keep you posted as I learn more and can share. Nicko will be coming on the radio shows soon to update us on all fronts. Always fun to talk with him, real good guy.”
Stay tuned for updates.
As previously reported, Iron Maiden have been confirmed for the 2010 edition of the Wacken Open Air festival, scheduled for August 5th – 7th in Wacken, Germany.
Comments Iron Maiden’s Steve Harris: “We had a fantastic time playing at Wacken last year so when we decided to play a few festivals in Europe next Summer it seemed a great idea to return. What could be better in Germany than to play again to the 75,000 true metalheads who go to Wacken!“
