Two, one show isn’t enough. So we decided to head out all across the western US to spread the Fozzpel and celebrate this great time in our lives!

Plus, it gets us out of the studio for a breath of fresh air…it gets a little stuffy in there sometimes when you’re recording a new record! So come ROCK with us and be a part of the most energetic, electric and FUN rock n roll show in the world today. Don’t miss Fozzy Unleashed In the West!!!”

Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson: “I Don’t See Any Reason Why We Should Ever Retire”

During a recent interview with Andreu Buenafuente on “Late Motiv”, Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson was asked about the possibility of retirement. The singer responded with the following:

“As far as I’m concerned anyway, I don’t see any reason why we should ever retire. As an airline captain, I was always told that nobody ever dies on an airplane. Even if the guy’s head is severed from his body, he’s not dead, because…if somebody says, ‘The guy’s head has fallen off,’ you go, ‘Well, is he dead?’ And they say, ‘Well, he’s not dead until somebody legally says he’s dead.’ So, nobody dies until somebody stands up and says, ‘Yup. He’s definitely dead.’ ‘Ha! You’re responsible then. You’ve killed him.’ So, it’s the same with rock and roll bands. We will never die. Even if we are actually dead, we will still never actually die.”

Iron Maiden Announce “Trooper Sun And Steel” Saké-Infused Lager

Iron Maiden have announced a new saké-infused lager called “Sun And Steel.” The double-fermented lager is the latest addition to the band’s “Trooper” beer line. Bruce Dickinson and Robinsons Brewery’s head brewer Martyn Weeks created the beer with George Yusa, who owns the 300-year-old Okunomatsu Saké Brewery in Fukushima, Japan. They also obtained permission from the Japanese government to brew it with authentic saké yeast. The drink will be available in the UK on May 6 and will then receive a worldwide release at a later date. Dickinson commented:

“This has been such an exciting project. I had a crazy idea to try and make a saké infused lager and over two and a half years later, here we are! I know Martyn and the team at Robinsons have had to become mad scientists to make this work but the end result is a really unique hybrid beer that tastes fantastic. Trooper fans have been asking for a lager, and here it is. I bet you would never have guessed we would do it like this though!”
