Bruce Dickinson uploaded a video message where he mentions that Iron Maiden are writing new material and that he’s been in the studio with the Chief, Steve Harris.
“A lot of things haven’t happened this year — that’s blindingly obvious — and it’s very, very frustrating. However, we do have plans. In the meantime, what are we doing? Well, we’re doing bits of writing. I’m talking to Steve. We’ve been working together a little bit in the studio. On what, I can’t tell you, ’cause they’d have to kill me.
“All our crew are all on board with us,” he continued. “Obviously, after the cancelation of the shows and rescheduling of the shows this year, all of our lives were canceled. The killer crew is still on board for when we resume normal service next year, whenever that is.
“In the meantime, we’re all still here, we’re all still gagging and raring to go. We are not going away. We are solid, and there’s gonna be some great stuff happening in the near future.”
