Iron Maiden expand vinyl reissues series

Iron Maiden have expanded their vinyl reissues series with twelve albums from the band’s catalogue scheduled for re-release on heavyweight 180g black vinyl this spring.

Following the 2014 launch of reissues of the group’s first eight records, the band are following up with a dozen projects that will be released over a three-month period.

On May 19, Iron Maiden will release “No Prayer For The Dying”, “Fear Of The Dark”, “The X Factor” and “Virtual XI.”

June 23 will deliver “Brave New World”, “Rock In Rio” (Live), "Dance Of Death" and “A Matter Of Life And Death.”

The 2017 editions wrap up on July 21 with “Death On The Road” (Live), “Flight 666” (Live), “The Final Frontier” and “En Vivo!” (Live).

As a bonus, the first two albums (“No Prayer For The Dying” and “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 a strictly limited edition and available while stocks last.

The 2017 releases will complete the group’s vinyl reissues series.

Iron Maiden return to the road for more dates on “The Book Of Souls” world tour starting April 22 in Antwerp, Belgium; a UK trek will follow in Nottingham on May 4 and the 2017 vinyl reissues will surface during the band’s North American summer tour, which begins in Bristow, VA on June 3.
