The long-awaited new studio album from Iron Maiden will be released this summer.

The Final Frontier is the first offering since A Matter Of Life And Death from 2006.

The band will also go on a world tour, starting in Dallas on June 9th.

At the moment, the only date in the UK will be at the Sonisphere festival in Knebworth - but the band have promised to stay on tour into next year so some more dates could be on the way.

Iron Maiden and Dream Theater!!!!



Prog rock/metal icons Dream Theater will spend their summer supporting Iron Maiden on the band’s month-long tour of major US and Canadian markets. The tour launches June 9 and runs through July 20, and includes a stop at the storied Madison Square Garden in NYC, marking the first time in a lengthy and respected career that Dream Theater have played the world’s most famous arena. This tour will mark another milestone in Dream Theater's history, which continues to expand and evolve 25 years deep.

 
Of touring with Iron Maiden in North America, drummer Mike Portnoy said, "It is a bit of a dream come true for us. After 25 years together, at this stage in our career, there's honestly only three bands Dream Theater would consider opening for and Maiden is one of them. It is an absolute honor. Through the years, we've done many one-off shows with Maiden and they've almost all been overseas. It is very exciting to finally be doing a full tour with them and on our side of the pond no less. These are gonna be amazing shows that the fans won't want to miss. Up the f---ing irons!"

Playing MSG for the first time is also a huge accomplishment for the band and they are thrilled about the prospect. "Dream Theater has achieved so many dreams through the years, from playing the Budokan in Tokyo to Wembley Arena in London to Radio City Music Hall in NYC," Portnoy recalled. "But the one remaining dream that has eluded us through all of these years was to play at Madison Square Garden. Well, on July 12, along with Iron Maiden, that dream will finally be fulfilled."

Guitarist John Petrucci was equally stoked about the MSG show, saying, "I am unbelievably excited to be finally playing Madison Square Garden, and with the almighty Maiden to boot! They have been heroes to the band since the beginning and are iconic in our eyes. There is nothing like achieving success and recognition in your own country, in your own city. It's going to be an incredible night for sure."

Portnoy has proof of this career-long dream, saying, "About a month ago my family and I were watching a video of my first band Intruder from back in 1983, and in the video before the show, I was interviewed and asked what my dream goal was. I responded ‘to play the Garden.’ It took almost 30 years, but it’s surreal that I will now be able to check it off the list."

Dream Theater’s Black Clouds & Silver Linings was released in 2009 and debuted at #6 on the Billboard Top 200 Sales chart.

I would assume Metallica and Rush. And i think i would assume correctly.

Very exciting news. Dream Theater and Iron Maiden! Amazing that they will be hitting the road together. Not a fan of the choice of cities they are hitting in California. But i think it's safe to say i will try my best to get to one of the California dates.

I read somewhere that this might be Maiden's last studio album.
