VIDEO: Iron Maiden share details of 1980s vinyl reissues

Iron Maiden are sharing a behind the scenes look at the production of their vinyl reissues series that sees the band’s 1980’s catalogue re-released on heavyweight 180g black vinyl this fall.

Last month, the group reissued their first six albums, and two more – 1986’s “Somewhere In Time” and 1988’s “Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son” are due November 24.

The reissues have been 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 wrapped up their Maiden England world tour this summer, a trek that 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.
