On January 18, David “Gus” Griesinger of BackstageAxxess conducted an interview with IRON MAIDEN drummer Nicko McBrain at the British Drum Co. booth during the 2020 NAMM show in Anaheim, California.
Asked if MAIDEN is working on a new album, Nicko responded:
“Watch this space: IronMaiden.com. That’s all I’ve gotta say.”
After Griesinger took McBrain‘s words to mean that fans should “expect something soon,” Nicko came back with:
“No, I didn’t say something soon, and I didn’t say ‘possibly.’ Watch this space, is what I said. Don’t be putting words in their mouths.”
Last December, rumors spread that IRON MAIDEN had already completed work on a new studio album.
