(PRESS RELEASE) -- A series of special limited edition Iron Maiden vinyl picture disc albums are due to be released by Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) starting in October 2012. Comprised of the first eight albums of Iron Maiden's career, all released in the 1980s, each picture disc will be packaged in a gatefold cover, full color printed inner sleeves, with the heavyweight vinyl cut from the original album master tapes.
The albums will be released chronologically between October and February, starting with Iron Maiden and Killers on October 16, 2012, followed by The Number Of The Beast and Piece Of Mind in November 2012.
To open the new year, Powerslave and the double album Live After Death will be released in January, with the final two titles, Somewhere In Time and Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son, coming out in February 2013.
These vinyl picture discs are being released to commemorate Iron Maiden's current Maiden England tour which features largely '80s material, in particular focusing on the Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son album.
