BMG will continue its reissues series of the IRON MAIDEN catalog with the second set of digipak CD titles in "The Studio Collection - Remastered", to be made available on March 22. Check out a newly released trailer below.
Following on from 2014/2017's black vinyl releases and 2015's "Mastered For iTunes" project, "The Studio Collection - Remastered" features recordings taken from the same remasters as the 2015 hi-res digital releases. The albums supersede the previously available studio catalog and all titles will also be made available on streaming platforms.
As a bonus for collectors, one CD from each batch of releases will also be optionally available in a specially artworked box featuring a 1:24 scale figurine and exclusive patch. In the March 22 batch, this will be "Somewhere In Time".
MAIDEN founding member and bassist Steve Harris says: "We've wanted to revisit these for a long time and I was delighted with the remastering we did in 2015. I thought it was the best that our albums have ever sounded and it was only right that we made them available on CD now too."
All four albums in this second batch are available for pre-order now from studiocollection.ironmaiden.com.
The first four albums in this collection were released in November 2018.
IRON MAIDEN will continue its "Legacy Of The Beast" tour in 2019 across North, South and Central America, including a headlining show at Brazil's Rock In Rio in October. The tour opened in Europe last year, playing to over 750,000 people at sold-out stadium, arena and headline festival shows and was hailed by fans and media alike as the must-see show of the summer.
