LOS ANGELES, CA – October 12, 2018 –BMG will continue their reissues series of the IRON MAIDEN catalog with The Studio Collection – Remastered, covering the band’s sixteen-strong studio albums across their career to date.
Following on from 2014/2017’s black vinyl releases and 2015’s Mastered for iTunesproject, The Studio Collection – Remastered will be released on the Digipak CD format, with the track listing matching the original U.K. releases. The recordings are taken from the same remasters as the 2015 hi-res digital releases. The albums will be released chronologically in batches of four, across a nine-month period superseding the previously available studio catalog and all titles will also be made available on streaming platforms.

In the November 16thbatch, this will be The Number Of The Beast.
Maiden founder member and bassist Steve Harris says, “We’ve wanted to revisit these for a long time and I was delighted with the remastering we did in 2015. I thought it was the best that our albums have ever sounded and it was only right that we made them available on CD now too.”
