Seriously, would it be realistic for the new album to come so early?
I suppose it could. But with the tour ending in October it seems more likely we will get an announcement then and the album in january/february. The tour could start in April.

It could be probably the release of the second British Lion album, a mini tour and the release of Maiden album ready to spring next year. European summer tour including Donnington and more festivals and the rest of the tour, maybe in two legs too.

Looks like one of the songs has leaked, it's on YouTube. I'm tempted to post a link to the leak just so everyone gets to hear it (it is so good) but I don't think the mods would appreciate it.

As you scream into the web of silence...
I found the lyrics!

01. Kingdom Of Perdition
[Verse 1]
I have sailed the seas of life
Took cover in the tomb
Entered into a hollow land
Burst like an accident from the womb

[Pre-Chorus 1]
I have many names
I have many souls
I have many bodies
I am eternal

[Chorus]
Step inside, step inside
My kingdom of perdition
Step inside, step inside
My kingdom of perdition

[Verse 2]
I've no time to kill
This is a liar's tongue
I wilt not in the day
From me the seeds have sprung

[Pre-Chorus 2]
I have have many eyes
I have many mights
I have emptiness
But I'm immortal

[Chorus]
Step inside, step inside
My kingdom of perdition
Step inside, step inside
My kingdom of perdition

[Instrumental]

[Bridge]

Lost in time, lost in space
No more hope, not a trace
Will I wander, will I roam
Will I return home

[Chorus]
Step inside, step inside
My kingdom of perdition
Step inside, step inside
My kingdom of perdition
Step inside, step inside
My kingdom of perdition
Step inside, step inside
My kingdom of perdition...

[Outro]
"And all that glitters is not gold.
All that fades is not old.
All that matters is not dead.
All that breathes within my head."

02. Decay
[Intro]
Ha ha ha ha!

[Verse 1]
Penetrated
Devastated
Left to die
Permeated
Deteriorated
All shall fight

[Chorus 1]
Man tries to set himself free
Watch as he falls into the see
Now there is no more to say...
Decay!

[Verse 2]
Lost wisdom
My kingdom
Sacrificed
Funeral pyres
Beltane fires
Burn the night

[Chorus 2]
Man is now on the run
See as three become one
Now there is no more to say...
Decay!

[Instrumental]

[Chorus 1]

Man tries to set himself free
Watch as he falls into the sea
Now there is no more to say...
Decay!
Decay!

03. Poisoned
[Intro]
My lonely secret, in my shell
No more to breathe, a living hell
Now that I see with my own eyes
I'm ready to die, I'm ready to rise
As one!

[Verse]
You take your victims and throw them to the rocks
He does the pigeon outwit the fox?
Does the holy man know what to do
When the tables turn, do they come for you?

[Pre-Chorus 1]
I knew the secrets, knew the ancient of the stones
I knew the majesty, what was left to learn
Now that the time's announced with my moans
My body is left to burn

[Chorus]
Who knew that poisoned was the cure?
Who knew that poisoned was the cure?

[Instrumental]

[Bridge]

"Living, breathing, dying.
In your eyes I see the hunger.
I hear the desperate cries that tear the night."

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Let me take you away from here
Let me help you kill your fear
Let me help you to understand
Don't fret, take my hand...

[Chorus]
Who knew that poisoned was the cure?
Who knew that poisoned was the cure?
Who knew that poisoned was the cure?
Who knew that poisoned was the cure?
Who knew that poisoned was the cure?
Who knew that poisoned was the cure?
Who knew that poisoned was the cure?
Who knew that poisoned was the cure?

04. Ocean Of War
[Intro]
Ocean of war, do you know what you're fighting for?
Ocean of war, ocean of war?

[Verse 1]
Allied troops storm the beaches
To destroy the Axis's reaches
Don't know what this us teaches
Blood shed for my kin
Nowhere to hide, nothing to gain
Blindsided by the pain
Now my courage starts to wain
Holy Father, we sin!

[Chorus]
Ocean of war, do you know what you're fighting for?
Ocean of war, ocean of war?
Ocean of war, do you know what you're fighting for?
Ocean of war, ocean of war?

[Verse 2]
Bringers of death and damnation
To help save the world and her nations
The bloody are now in condemnation
So they kill to save their souls
In death's clutches, I run forward
My friends died on the slaughter board
Like rats in an ungodly horde
The guns they take their tolls

[Chorus]
Ocean of war, do you know what you're fighting for?
Ocean of war, ocean of war?
Ocean of war, do you know what you're fighting for?
Ocean of war, ocean of war?

[Solo]

[Bridge 1]

In the valley of the shadow of death
I will fear no evil
I believed that I had been blessed
It was just Believil

[Solo]

[Bridge 2]

Standing on the edge of the world
Where the body bags are unfurled
Tossed into a sea of red
Overlord, your men are dead!

[Chorus]
Ocean of war, do you know what you're fighting for?
Ocean of war, ocean of war?
Ocean of war, do you know what you're fighting for?
Ocean of war, ocean of war?
Ocean of war, do you know what you're fighting for?
Ocean of war, ocean of war?
Ocean of war, do you know what you're fighting for?
Ocean of war, ocean of war?

05. The End Of Reason
[Verse 1]
Ages passed me by
How many friends have died?
Looks like I'm nearing the end of reason
No more time for love
Just give me a shove
Looks like I'm nearing the end of reason

[Chorus]
All alone, I hang up the phone
Pen the fateful letter
When I have gone, you won't remember me for long
And the end just gets better

[Verse 2]
If God is up above
Why won't He send his love?
Looks like I'm nearing the end of reason
No more time to waste
Better if in haste
Looks like I'm nearing the end of reason

[Chorus]
All alone, I hang up the phone
Pen the fateful letter
When I have gone, you won't remember me for long
And the end just gets better

[Drum Solo]

[Chorus]

All alone, I hang up the phone
Pen the fateful letter
When I have gone, you won't remember me for long
And the end just gets better

06. Sworn Angel
[Intro]
Guiding my life, guiding my hand
Following the footsteps through the empty land
Guiding my heart, guiding my soul
When I return from here, I will become whole...

[Chorus]
Sworn Angel
Sworn Angel

[Verse 1]
See the navigator stand
He looks out across the land
The compass swings, his back is arched
His body tired, his throat parched

He knew the keys to life and death
He knew the secrets we all kept
He knew the tales of long ago
And now he's brought to the edge of the shore

[Pre-Chorus]
Guiding my life, guiding my hand
Following the footsteps through the empty land
Guiding my heart, guiding my soul
When I return from here, I will become whole...

[Chorus]
Sworn Angel
Sworn Angel
Sworn Angel
Sworn Angel

[Verse 2]
Our hero is set on course
The end comes near him in a force
He knew the time would come down day
But now it's here and there's nothing to say

He knew one day he'd turn in the card
But now that it's come it feels so very hard
He turns his eyes to look up to the sky
The face of an angel helps him say goodbye

[Pre-Chorus]
Guiding my life, guiding my hand
Following the footsteps through the empty land
Guiding my heart, guiding my soul
When I return from here, I will become whole...

[Chorus]
Sworn Angel
Sworn Angel
Sworn Angel
Sworn Angel

[Instrumental]

[Chorus]

Guiding my life, guiding my hand
Following the footsteps through the empty land
Guiding my heart, guiding my soul
When I return from here, I will become whole...

[Chorus]
Sworn Angel
Sworn Angel
Sworn Angel
Sworn Angel
Sworn Angel
(Take my hand)
Sworn Angel
(I'll help you stand)
Sworn Angel
(I'll lead you to...)
Sworn Angel
(...your promised land)

08. The Crypt
[Intro]
Let me take you down inside the crypt!

[Verse 1]
The tomb lies silent
The time is now
Stand on your legs, boy
Walk into the sun

[Pre-Chorus]
Cursed by the fallen angel
The tomb, the tomb
Left to lie in his graveyard
The tomb, the tomb
No way to escape the madness
The tomb, the tomb
Egyptian child became a god
His tomb, his tomb

[Pre-Chorus 2]
All falls silent in the crypt
Bodies with naught more to give
Entropy is setting in
See if God or nature will win

[Chorus]
Let me take you down inside the crypt
It's a magically hellish trip
Let me show you the open door
Watch you fall right through the floor
Welcome... to the crypt!

[Instrumental]

[Pre-Chorus]
Cursed by the fallen angel
The tomb, the tomb
Left to lie in his graveyard
The tomb, the tomb
No way to escape the madness
The tomb, the tomb
Egyptian child became a god
His tomb, his tomb

[Pre-Chorus 2]
All falls silent in the crypt
Bodies with naught more to give
Entropy is setting in
See if God or nature will win

[Chorus]
Let me take you down inside the crypt
It's a magically hellish trip
Let me show you the open door
Watch you fall right through the floor
Exit... the crypt!

09. Time Is Running Out
Time is running out
Time is running out
Cannot get away
Time is running out

Time is running out
Time is running out
I try to fall and pray
Time is running out

Time is running out
Time is running out
I guess today's the day
Time has just run out

10. The Prophet
"And there will come a day,
When the new shall be old.
When the young must die.
When the flower withers.
When the branches fade.
When the trees fall.
When the hunters are hunted.
When the killers are killed.
When the cannibals are eaten.
When we are finally one in a universe
That both hates us and adores us.
That we both hate and adore.
And our dying bones are left
To the birds of prey.
And our minds rot like sand.
So spake The Prophet, and he too must die."

[Verse 1]
He stood on a cliff
He could see a sinking ship
It was not enough to see
It wasn't enough to be
Now we are everlost
The Prophet cursed us long ago
We were torn and tossed
To the end we all shall go

[Pre-Chorus]
Time... time... time... time...

[Chorus]
The Prophet standing tall
His back to the world and all
The Prophet, he cursed me
So I throw myself into the sea
Tame the dragon, tame the beast
Tame the human, tame the feast
Long live The Prophet, wish him well
For his sins he must dine in hell

[Verse 2]
Killing fields now unleashed
Humans rung on a leash
Nothing special, his own little niche
Interests of Hades's mind
Breaking down the ones
Who were not of his heart
Spat in God's face
The lions are apart

[Pre-Chorus]
Time... time... time... time...

[Chorus]
The Prophet standing tall
His back to the world and all
The Prophet, he cursed me
So I throw myself into the sea
Tame the dragon, tame the beast
Tame the human, tame the feast
Long live The Prophet, wish him well
For his sins he must dine in hell

[Instrumental]

[Bridge]

At the edge of the world I'm standing now
At the edge of the world I take a bow
Au revoir my friends of old
I must head to the seas of gold

[Pre-Chorus]
Time... time... time... time...

[Chorus]
The Prophet standing tall
His back to the world and all
The Prophet, he cursed me
So I throw myself into the sea
Tame the dragon, tame the beast
Tame the human, tame the feast
Long live The Prophet, wish him well
For his sins he must dine in hell

For his sins...
He must dine...
In Hell...

Dunno about you, but I'm fucking hyped now.

Seriously though, would very much like to see this happen:
(Smith, Gers)
And this:
(Dickinson, McBrain)
And this:
(Smith, Murray)
And this:
(Smith, McBrain)
Who knows, maybe one of them will read this thread and decide to stitch us all up and go for it?
