New album readied for the Fall

For over 20 years, Iron Maiden have been at the forefront of metal, clocking up over 50 million album sales and legions of adoring fans worldwide.

For the first time ever, they have compiled every one of their promotional videos into an awesome two-DVD set which runs from 1980's 'Women In Uniform' through to the band's now legendary headlining slot in front of 250,000 fans at 2001's Rock In Rio performing 'Brave New World.'

With a running time in excess of three hours, 'Visions Of The Beast' is the definitive chronicle of Iron Maiden through the years and includes many videos that were previously unavailable. Not only is every video the band has ever made included - 31 in total - but each DVD features never-before-seen Camp Chaos animated versions of six classic tracks, interactive menus and discographies, and some special hidden extras.

'Visions Of The Beast' is every metal fan's dream, and serves as a timely reminder of just how important Iron Maiden are in the history of rock music. It is also the most concise and entertaining collection of their defining moments ever released - and a damn fine way to get psyched for their incredible new album, due in the Fall.

The DVD is being released in conjunction with their upcoming globe-trotting marathon - the 'Give Me 'Ed... Til I'm Dead' World Tour. Of the trek, lead singer Bruce Dickinson states, "This tour is all about having fun as the name suggests. We love summer and we love playing big shows. We are going to be playing a lot of our favorite Maiden songs and many people know we've got a new album in the pipeline for later this year so perhaps we'll be playing a new song or two, but basically it will be full on Maiden! The band is firing on all cylinders and the show will be as spectacular as always."
