LOS ANGELES, CA – March 24, 2017 Starting on May 19, 2017, BMG will follow 2014’s reissue of the first eight IRON MAIDEN albums, which spanned the 1980s, with the release of twelve brand new pressings of albums from the period 1990-2015 on heavyweight 180g black vinyl.

Unlike the 1980’s reissues which were cut from the original analog master tapes, the audio on these releases has been cut from the high resolution remasters of 2015 when the Maiden catalog 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: 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 extremely limited and available while supplies last.

These high-quality, black vinyl sets 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’s The Book Of Souls Tour resumes with a series of arena shows opening in Sportpalais, Antwerp, Belgium on April 22 and continuing into Germany, UK and Ireland, finishing with two sold-out shows at London’s 02 Arena on May 27 & 28.  The band then flies to the U.S.A for an extensive series of arena and amphitheatre shows including dates in Canada, ending with two nights in Brooklyn, New York onJuly 21 & 22.
