Iron Maiden To Release “The Book Of Souls: Live Chapter”, Share “Speed Of Light” Live Video


Iron Maiden‘s extensive touring on their current album “The Book Of Souls” has been compiled into an upcoming live album titled “The Book Of Souls: Live Chapter“. The set features performances recorded around the world on the band’s global touring in support of “The Book Of Souls” and will meet a November 17th release through BMG. Planned formats include CD, deluxe CD, vinyl and digital formats.

A live concert film for the release featuring footage filmed throughout the tour is also planned and will initially be streamed free with more details to come. A digital download of the film will be made available to purchase following the premiere. The band’s bassist Steve Harris produced the set alongside Tony Newton and said of it:

“We spent a huge amount of time working on this as I wanted to get it as close to the Maiden live experience as I possibly could and to represent our fans from different parts of the world. This meant listening to literally hours upon hours of tapes from every show, to select material and construct a sound that would run consistently across the whole album and capture the excitement of a new country like El Salvador alongside such regular favourites as Donington or Wacken.”
