Iron Maiden have released a trailer below for their new 88 minute documentary, “Behind The Beast“. The feature is included on select format versions of the bands forthcoming 2xDVD, Blu-ray, 2xCD live offering “En Vivo!“, which is due in stores March 26th. The set captures the bands April 10th, 2011 show at the Estadio Nacional in Santiago, Chile.

Orgy have postponed the final five dates of their “Bad Blood Tour“. The band are citing “high demand for new music” as the reason for the change in scheduling. The following statement was issued on the matter:

“Due to high demand for new music, ORGY must reschedule the last 5 dates of their current “Bad Blood Tour 2012” in Sacramento, Tacoma, Portland, Oakland and Tempe so the band can get into the studio. These markets will be rescheduled for the second leg of the tour, which is expected to begin in the middle of May (exact dates TBA), along with new markets that the fans have been asking for.

The newly reformed band—founding member JAY GORDON (vocals) along with CARLTON BOST (guitar), ASHBURN MILLER (guitar), NIC SPECK (bass) and JAMIE MILLER (drums)–apologize for the inconvenience to the fans but promise the wait will be well worth it. The Hollywood, CA rockers are excited to record new music and get a single out to radio before they hit the road again. Stay tuned to www.orgymusic.com for all the latest news.”
