Iron Maiden's fifteenth studio album, The Final Frontier, is not set to be their last studio release, the band have confirmed. Speculation has been rife since they announced the record's title earlier this year especially given mainman Steve Harris' frequent comments in previous years that they'd make 15 albums then stop. But with the title set for release on Monday morning Harris tells Metal Hammer: "It's true that I've always said I wanted to do 15 studio albums. Well, I haven't always said that I started saying it after the fourth or fifth album, but I didn't expect to do more than three when we first started. "There's probably a bit of mischief in the name, particularly on Bruce Dickinson's part. People are going to think it's either the last album or that we're Trekkies, or both. It's not like that really." Singer Dickinson adds: "Is it mischief? Of course it is although we genuinely haven't made up our minds about another album, we thought people would be bound to say, 'Oh, it's the last album.' "So we'll just go, 'Not necessarily'. I don't know what we'll call the next one. Maybe Never Say Never?" Meanwhile, drummer Nicko McBrain is even more forthright about the outfit's future: "I think everyone's being too cagey. It ain't gonna be the last record, not as far as I'm concerned. The general feeling is that if we want to make another record, we will." Thanks for the report to RockRadio.
