Iron Maiden Announce 'The Book Of Souls' Live Album And Concert Film

Wednesday, 20 September 2017 Written by Laura Johnson

Iron Maiden have announced a new live album and concert film.

‘The Book Of Souls: Live Chapter’ will arrive on November 17 and is comprised of 15 songs recorded during the band's The Book Of Souls World Tour, which visited 39 countries across six continents during 2016 and 2017.

The record will be released digitally, on CD and vinyl, while the concert film will be available as a free stream or digital download.

Speaking about the release, bassist Steve Harris said:

"We spent a huge amount of time working on this as I wanted to get it as close to the Maiden live experience as I possibly could and to represent our fans from different parts of the world. This meant listening to literally hours upon hours of tapes from every show, to select material and construct a sound that would run consistently across the whole album and capture the excitement of a new country like El Salvador alongside such regular favourites as Donington or Wacken.”
 

Rod Smallwood, Iron Maiden's manager, added:

"'The Book Of Souls World Tour’ was a huge undertaking, not least for Bruce who started the tour singing in public for the very first time since recovering from throat cancer. He also piloted Ed-Force One, upgraded last year from a Boeing 757 to a 747 so we could go further and faster to visit some fantastic cities and fans all round the world. This year continued that excitement bringing us our most successful North American and UK tours ever. It was a very special tour in a great many ways so we felt we wanted to document it for both ourselves and for our fans. Steve has done an incredible job putting together this set from cities around the world and we’ve made sure the deluxe CD will be available in a matching book format to ‘The Book of Souls’ release.

On top of all that the release will be celebrated by an event that is a Maiden first: a free live streaming premiere of the concert film, as a thank you to our loyal fans around the world. We hope that the global Maiden community will all enjoy coming together to watch this special event online. Many of you will be in it as there is footage from a whole host of the places we played on this momentous tour. ”

Action Bronson - White Bronco (Album Review)
Fri 23 Nov 2018
This might sound absurd, at least at first, but Action Bronson could quite easily lay claim to being the perfect rap emcee. The New York heavyweight has strong projection, an addictive old-school flow, buckets full of charisma and wordplay on tap. The reason he's frequently compared to Ghostface Killah isn't just his cadence and vocal delivery–his verses often hark back to the Wu-Tang Clan legend in his pomp.
