Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson about "The Book Of Souls": "I really hope that this is not the last album"


On August 26, Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson flew 150 lucky fans out to Paris, France from Cardiff, Wales, United Kingdom onboard a chartered Boeing 737-400 plane so they could attend a listening session for the band's new album, "The Book Of Souls", at the Guillaume Tell Studios.

Bruce Dickinson, who was recently given the all-clear after being diagnosed with a tumor on his tongue late last year, told the audience at Wednesday's event: "Thanks to radiation and chemicals and great doctors and support of everybody on the planet, apparently the tumor has disappeared. I did ask where it's gone, and the doctor looked at me and went, 'Well, the body just sort of gets rid of it,' which tends to mean they probably don't know, they don't bloody know!"

Asked by a fan if "The Book Of Souls" will turn out to Iron Maiden's final album release, Dickinson responded: "I really hope that this is not the last album. I've had way too much fun making this one. I'm gonna have way too much fun and enjoy the next tour for a variety of reasons. I'm happily chatting to you and running around and leaping around or flying airplanes. And the next stop is gonna be a tour and some singing."

Iron Maiden new album"The Book Of Souls" will be released on September 4.
