Iron Maiden are on track to top the UK album charts with their latest release, “The Book Of Souls.”
The Official Charts Company reports the band’s 16th studio album is currently over 30,000 chart sales ahead of nearest rival Jess Glynne, putting them in with a good chance of scoring their fifth Official Albums Chart No. 1 this Friday.
Iron Maiden last topped the UK charts in summer 2010 with “The Final Frontier.”
“The Book Of Souls” was produced by Kevin Shirley and recorded in Paris in 2014.
The group’s first-ever double studio album was launched last month with the lead track “Speed Of Light.”
The band issued an 8-bit video game based on the video for the tune, with fans playing the browser-based game as Iron Maiden mascot Eddie.
Iron Maiden have revealed the The Book Of Souls World Tour will open in the US in late February.
