's Bruce Dickinson
- "We Are Going To Do Another Album" IRON MAIDEN
singer Bruce Dickinson
spoke to Argentina's Vorterix recently about the band's plans to record a new studio album, touring, his singing technique and other topics. Here are a few excerpts from the chat. Dickinson
on the future of Iron Maiden
and a new studio album: Dickinson
: "Well, I mean, we are going to do another album. When we do it I can’t tell you. Actually I’ve written a load of stuff. You know, we’re all writing little bits and bobs all the time. We’ll see what happens, you know. But yeah, sure." Iron Maiden
have been touring the world on the Maiden England package that revisited their classic Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son era. Asked whether or not they will do a similar thing with their '90s material in the future, Dickinson gets a little ambiguous. Dickinson:
"We haven’t got that far yet. Let’s finish this one first and see what happens next year. But yeah, I do not think Maiden fans are going to be too disappointed for too long."
How has he kept his voice strong through all these years of intense performances? Dickinson:
"It’s kind of like a guitarist, you want to know about your instrument. You want to know why it sounds like it does, how to look after it. The one thing you can’t do with the voice, you can’t put new strings on it. And it does change with age, as you mature, as the spaces in your body change shape,. All these things has a bearing on your voice. It’s like a wooden kind of instrument, the wood gets older and it develops tone and you get subtle changes."
