Iron Maiden to reissue back catalogue on vinyl

Iron Maiden have announced a vinyl reissues series that will see the band’s 1980’s catalogue re-released on heavyweight 180g black vinyl this fall.

The records will be released chronologically across a two month period starting October 13th (Oct 14th in North America) with the first three albums: “Iron Maiden”, “Killers” and “The Number Of The Beast.”

The albums will also be cut from the original analogue master tapes and packaged in identical artwork to the initial 1980’s releases. As a bonus, the first batch of album releases will also be made available in a Collector’s Box sized to house all 8 albums; this package will be a strictly limited edition and available while stocks last.

In conjunction with these premium album releases, a strictly limited one-off run of the 7” singles from each respective album will be made available. These highly collectable black vinyl singles will be cut from the original analogue master tapes and released in replica artwork packaging.

Iron Maiden recently wrapped up their Maiden England world tour, which saw the band play 100 shows to more than 2 million fans in 32 countries over the course of the 2-year run, which began in June 2012 in Charlotte, North Carolina.
