Iron Maiden are planning to enter the studio to record a new album, according to a new interview with Bruce Dickenson.
The interview in Swedish magazine Talarforum says the band are planning for a 2014 release for their new album. It will be their first LP since 2010's "The Final Frontier," their 15th studio release.
In the same interview, Bruce Dickenson told the story of how he went from being homeless with only £10 ($15) to singing with Iron Maiden as a career. Walking around with only a suitcase and looking for a bench to sleep on, Bruce decided to spend the last of his money on a few beers at a rock club:
"I ran right into an old friend that I have been playing in a band with," said Bruce (via a translation from the original Swedish article.) "After living with him for a week, I ran into a couple of other buddies and then floated on like that until I started singing in Iron Maiden.""What then seemed to be an almost insignificant decision turned out, in retrospect, to be a real milestone. You have to take risks in order to take responsibility for their lives and do not get caught in hopeless situations."
