"We chose to record at Guillaume Tell Studio in France again as the place has such a relaxed vibe. The setup there is perfect for our needs; the building used to be a cinema and has a really high ceiling so there's a great acoustic sound. We recorded this album in the same way we did The Book Of Souls in that we'd write a song, rehearse it and then put it down together straight away while it was all fresh in our minds. There's some very complex songs on this album which took a lot of hard work to get them exactly as we wanted them to sound, so the process was at times very challenging, but Kevin is great at capturing the essence of the band and I think it was worth the effort! I'm very proud of the result and can't wait for fans to hear it." - bassist Steve Harris.

IRON MAIDEN today revealed their brand-new track, "The Writing On The Wall," with an eagerly anticipated global YouTube video premiere. The song was written by Maiden guitarist Adrian Smith & lead singer Bruce Dickinson, produced by Kevin Shirley and co-produced by Maiden bassist and founder-member Steve Harris.

Bruce Dickinson initially had a concept for the video which came to fruition in collaboration with two Award-winning former Pixar executives and long-standing Maiden fans Mark Andrews & Andrew Gordon. The pair have over 50 years of animation industry experience between them at the very top-level including work on The Incredibles, Ratatouille, Brave, Monsters Inc & Finding Nemo. With partners lining up to get involved with the project they chose BlinkInk, a London based animation studio celebrated for their work with a variety of global brands from Adidas to Coca-Cola and a number of high-profile music videos.

In BlinkInk director Nicos Livesey, another long-time Maiden fan & kindred spirit, they found a man who shared the collective vision for the track – resulting in the final film which features the very first glimpse of a stunning new incarnation of Eddie in spectacular 3D form.

Bruce comments "I had a pretty clear idea of the concept to accompany the song and when I met Mark and Andrew, on Zoom, it quickly became clear we were all very much on the same wavelength, and this was reinforced with the addition of Nicos and his young BlinkInk team. Our weekly team Zoom meetings were then usually both highly creative and a lot of fun!

I'm very proud of the way the video turned out, it's more like a mini-film really. I knew it was going to work out as soon as Mark brought my treatment to life with his incredible storyboards - I thought we could make something very special together. I think we did and hope our fans will agree. In fact it's pretty much created by Maiden fans!!"

ISDJFKmsfOAVKORKAELDSRT
'Beartooth: The Journey Below', is the official prequel to their new album "Below" and focuses on 'the world of Barry, its demon overlord.' (written by Tony Lee and illustrated by Omar Francia)

"Storytelling has always been something we've wanted to dive into as a band. Our goal is to build a universe full of adventure for Beartooth fans to explore." -Bassist/vocalist Oshie Bichar

Here's the official press release:
'The story behind the myths of Beartooth's album Below is brought to life as Barry awakens corporate drone Lita's memory of how alive the world once was before the cold forces of the corporate world outlawed rock, reminding her of who she truly was, and who she could be again. Told by #1 New York Times best-selling author Tony Lee with the members of Beartooth, The Journey Below is a powerful tale reminding us of the vital power contained within every chord and beat of a song'.

"I've been a fan of Beartooth since Aggressive came out, and I'm over the moon to work with them on this story. The world of Below is a place I've wanted to visit a lot during the last year, and now I get to share it with everyone." -Tony Lee

Look for Beartooth's new antihero and mascot Barry in comics this November! "Beartooth: The Journey Below" is available to preorder in a standard softcover and hardcover, plus as slipcase, deluxe and super deluxe editions featuring exclusive prints and vinyl. https://www.instagram.com/z2comics/

BAD WOLVES WELCOME NEW LEAD SINGER

BAD WOLVES WELCOME NEW LEAD SINGER DANIEL "DL" LASKIEWICZ and ANNOUNCE THIRD ALBUM 'DEAR MONSTERS,' NEAR COMPLETION 

NEW YORK, NY -- JUNE 2, 2021 -- Today, multi-platinum-selling, chart-topping band BAD WOLVES officially welcome celebrated singer-songwriter Daniel "DL" Laskiewicz as their new lead singer, following former lead singer Tommy Vext's public departure from the band earlier this year.

Bad Wolves are led by co-founding member and drummer John Boecklin - who has honored his commitment to Bad Wolves' fans by continuing with the group when the previous singer quit in January 2021. Bad Wolves broke the news on their social media today with the following statement:

"We are excited to officially announce that Bad Wolves has a new singer - Daniel "DL" Lasckiewicz. DL is a tremendous songwriter and singer, and we can confidently say that the album we are working on, titled Dear Monsters, is the best Bad Wolves album to date.

DL is one of the most talented and hard-working people we have ever had the pleasure to know. He is a team player, a creative force, and overall a great human being who fits perfectly with our BW family. It feels incredible to be surrounded with such positive energy and the music we've made is certainly reflective of this new-found optimism and collaborative spirit. This new album shows a more cohesive and unique reflection of the band. There is a lot to prove and expectations are high with a new singer coming in. And we nailed it. The songs speak for themselves, and if you're a Bad Wolves fan we know you won't be disappointed.

So much has happened since Tommy publicly quit Bad Wolves a few months ago - and we disagree with the validity of much of what he has said publicly about our parting of ways - but we would prefer to not look back on the past and instead focus on this new chapter. And most importantly, we'd like to let the music speak for itself. Thanks for believing in Bad Wolves and please join us in welcoming DL to the family. We can't wait for you to hear what's coming". -John, Doc, Chris, Kyle & DL

DL has carved out an impressive career for himself over the last 15+ years, most notably as a founding member and lead guitarist of metalcore band The Acacia Strain, in which he was a member since 2001-2013. A talented songwriter and producer, he's also worked on projects with All That Remains, Legion, For the Fallen Dreams, and collaborated with Bad Wolves on their 2019 studio album N.A.T.I.O.N., where the creative relationship with the band started.

BAD WOLVES are signed to Better Noise Music and are recording their third studio album, their first with DL, expected to be released later this year.
