The legends have returned with soaring solos and animated brilliance.
Following years of touring in support of the acclaimed, The Book Of Souls (2015), IRON MAIDEN return with much anticipated new music in the form of single, The Writing On The Wall. With it comes a spectacular accompanying video by two former Pixar executives, Mark Andrews and Andrew Gordon, and London animation studio, BlinkInk. Decades in and Maiden have yet to dip in quality and energy. The Writing On The Wall is audiovisual excellence in every sense of the word and the songwriting capabilities of Dickinson and Adrian Smith shine in glorious fashion.
Frontman Bruce Dickinson 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!”
