NEW FUCKING MAIDEN ALBUM IN PLANNING!

According to BANG Media International, IRON MAIDEN will start work on its next album this year. The group hopes to have a new album out and be back on tour in 2010.

Guitarist Adrian Smith told BANG showbiz: "At the end of the year we'll be writing again, rehearsing and recording at the beginning of next year. Then we'll be back out on the road again next year. Kevin Shirley [producer] will be working on it with us and we'll probably be doing it somewhere where we've done a lot for recording in the past."

The next IRON MAIDEN album will be the band's fifteenth studio record, and they face a challenge to follow up their last effort, 2006s "A Matter of Life and Death" which was received well critically and saw the band tour playing the whole album.

Speaking at the premiere of the band's documentary film "Iron Maiden: Flight666", Adrian added: "There's always a bit of pressure to follow up the last album, in a way it's good because it motivates you.

"We never get complacent; we always try our best for our own sake as much as anything else. As far as pressure for another album, we just do what we do - we've been doing it long enough now, we know what we're doing [laughs]"

Anyone else think it'll be the last one though?

I'm honestly not sure. I think they have the time left in them to do at least another one after this, it's just a matter of what they wind up doing after this new album. If they do another theme tour or hits tour or something, it'll eat up a lot of time. I'm really not sure, but obviously I'm always hoping for more, especially if they maintain the quality since the reunion.

Yeah. Ya think it'll be along the same lines as the last few? I doubt they change it up at this point, but just one straight up balls out heavy rocker with no acoustic instrumentation would be sweet. But whatever its 2009 and theres new Maiden on the way, its fucking happy time

Great news! I don't know whether to be more excited about a new album or the tour next year!

Yeah. I love the longer, more bombastic songs, but I think a few more shorter (3.5-5 minute) songs that are uptempo and get right to the point wouldn't hurt. I don't think the formula will change much overall, but even with their similarities, there are sonic and stylistic differences between all 3 reunion albums thus far.
And yes, unless Maiden does something very stupid and unsuspected, I don't see how this won't be really good.

Their plan has been album, album tour, album tour DVD, theme tour, theme tour DVD, lather, rinse, repeat. And I'm pretty sure they want to do a theme tour for each era up to Bruce's return, which means at least two more theme tours, which by my reckoning means two more album cycles as well.

That'd make them about as old as bands like Priest by the time they get there, which I don't think is out of the realms of possibilty.

I guess we'll see.

I've said this before, I really can NOT see them doing a 90s theme tour. I wouldn't necessarily be opposed to it, I like both Blaze albums and love half of Fear of the Dark. However I just don't think it's going to happen. Most people don't want it and/or don't care, and I think the band knows that the 90s was collectively by far their weakest period, and know there's not a ton of strong, in-demand material from it.
