MAIDEN UNITED is the all-acoustic IRON MAIDEN tribute project featuring Damian Wilson (THRESHOLD, HEADSPACE) and Ruud Jolie (WITHIN TEMPTATION).

Commented Jolie: "We are all very excited about Perttu playing the cello on two songs of the new album. His great playing adds a very nice color to our sound."

"Across The Seventh Sea" is scheduled to be released on September 28 on CD, iTunes and limited-edition black-and-blue transparent vinyl.

The cover artwork for the CD was once again created by Blacklake, who also worked with MAIDEN UNITED on their first studio album, "Mind The Acoustic Pieces".

MAIDEN UNITED's debut album, "Mind The Acoustic Pieces" (2010), was described as "an acoustic re-imagining of the entire classic IRON MAIDEN album "Piece Of Mind" with new arrangements."
