Last week metal icons, Iron Maiden, sprung on us their first song in 6 years, The Writing On The Wall along with a brilliant animated video clip. Then on Monday, they revealed the song is part of a brand new double album titled, Senjutsu, which is today available for pre-order.
A ton of formats of the record are now available via the Maniacs Store including a limited edition silver and black vinyl variant. Check them out via the Maniacs store now.
Maiden’s 17th studio album will be released on September 3rd. Bruce Dickonson says:
“We’re all really excited about this album. We recorded it back in early 2019 during a break in the Legacy tour so we could maximize our touring yet still have a long set up period before release to prepare great album art and something special as a video. Of course the pandemic delayed things more - so much for the best laid plans – or should that be ‘strategies’!? The songs are very varied, and some of them are quite long. There’s also one or two songs which sound pretty different to our usual style, and I think Maiden fans will be surprised - in a good way, I hope!"
