Paul Di'Anno Scraps Retirement Plans, Launches New Band Architects of Chaoz
Former Iron Maiden vocalist Paul Di'Anno officially scrapped his retirement plans and is set to return with a new band called Architects of Chaoz.

As Blabbermouth reports, the band will feature members of Di'Anno's longtime German touring group The Phantomz. The release of a studio album is also expected in the near future.

"I was gonna retire because of a bad knee," the singer told Metal Voice. "And it was really p-ssing me off. What it is, I've got a knee replacement, 'cause it's all damaged; I've had a couple of motorcycle accidents.

"I thought about quitting - not because I wanted to, but I thought, 'This could get worse. I'm doing more damage to it.' But then I thought, it doesn't make a difference; it's about the voice."

Getting down to the real reason, Paul added, "And I spoke to the wife and she said, 'Oh, my God. If you stay home for two months, I'll probably murder you.' So I decided in the end, 'F--k it.' Doing all these things is great, but I actually wanna be part of a band."

Prior to knee issues, Di'Anno already announced a retirement, but soon pointed out that "it's not an actual retirement retirement." More info here and here.
