IRON MAIDEN Locked Up Their New Album, Senjutsu In A Vault For Two Years To Prevent It From Leaking

How serious are Iron Maiden about not having their new album, Senjutsu, leak? So serious that no member of the band even had a copy of the album, in fact, the whole thing was locked in a vault! Leaks seem pretty inevitable in today's environment, but Maiden went above and beyond to avoid anything getting out before they were ready.

Bruce Dickinson tells  Metal Hammer:

“At the ending of the recording, everybody else had fucked off home, so it was basically me, Steve [Harris, bassist] and Kevin [Shirley, producer] in the studio. We played it back a couple of times, said, ‘Yeah, that’s alright then!’ And then that was the last time I heard it or nearly two years. All of us! Nobody in the band had a copy!

“Steve, in particular, was so paranoid that someone would leak it onto the internet, and probably with some justification, it was locked up in a vault.”

It's funny to look back at quotes from last year where Dickinson says the band has done "a little bit of writing" when they basically had the whole album done.

Senjutsu is out on September 3. Two singles have been released: "The Writing on the Wall" and "Stratego"
