    Tracklist/Album Art/The New Song on Tour?

    The Ugly Eddie over the futuristic arrows as a massive picture makes me think Album Art.

    No, I think the countdown is for the release of the first song from the new album. That's the simplest assumption. It would be reasonable to release a single just before the tour kicks off.

    The concept of eddie's head with those crossed things is similar to the one on AMOLAD.

    Hopefully the songs won't be as similar.  :p

    Re: New 2 day countdown added to Maiden's site!

    I really hope you're right about that![hr][/hr]
    Maiden always manages to come up with a different sound and style for every album so I'm sure it won't be like AMOLAD.[hr][/hr]If my math is correct, the countdown seems to be right up to Maiden's Rockline appearance.

    Re: New 2 day countdown added to Maiden's site!

    So on monday night or tuesday morning they could announce something...the tour begins between 4 days....so surely this has something to do with the new album or the new single...

    You must not be in the USA because here in Minnesota, the countdown ends at 6:00, Monday night.

    Re: New 2 day countdown added to Maiden's site!

    It is actually an odd time for an update.

    In England it comes at midnight in 2 days (i.e. 48 hours and 7 minutes time) which is a bit useless because we should all theoretically be in bed by then :p And it doesn't clash with the rockline interview because thats at 11:30 Pm eastern time so it's about 4 and a half hours before then. Ah well, more to ponder!

    Edit: It also makes sense for it to be the single. Thinking back to GME tour and Bruces 'rant' about Metallica and Napster and then saying "Upload Wildest Dreams and buy it if you like it". They'll probably just save us having to find a good copy of the song or only listening to terrible versions by giving us the proper version in advance. Makes sense.

    They know all the crazy fans are already salivating to have their hands on the single, so why not put it up?

    2 things - announcement of the new album release date, artwork and all details, and in my opinion, unfortunately, that it'll be the last one. Hope I'm wrong about the later, hope that instead is the new single or even that the album will be already available.
     
  14. Re: New 2 day countdown added to Maiden's site!

    Could this be the dreaded announcement that this will be the last Maiden tour and album????? :eek:

    Probably it's the last album, but obviously it's not the last tour.

    Whatever the announcement is, i'm sure it has something to do with the new album and single. I'm guessing on the new tour they'll at least wanna do one song off it to promote TFF. So it would make sense to release the first single that way fans have a chance to get to know it before they touring starts.

    Re: New 2 day countdown added to Maiden's site!

    When the countdown runs out, I just hope the site doesn't slow down too bad or freeze up with everyone trying to get on it at once. That's what happened with the announcement of the N.A. dates.

    Such thing cannot happen as they took our free forum away to give a huge room to the server not to crash.

    Remember that the countdown ends as the interview with Steve and Janick on Rockline starts.
