According to IRON MAIDEN‘s recording engineer Tony Newton, the band’s two Brazilian concerts in São Paulo (September 20) and Rock In Rio festival (September 22) will be professionally recorded. It is not presently clear if the resulting footage will be made available commercially.

In a recent interview with the Turkish web site Hafifmuzik.org, MAIDEN singer Bruce Dickinson revealed that there will be no new studio album from the band in 2014. He did, however, assure fans that MAIDEN has plans to release a new CD, although most likely not before 2015.

IRON MAIDEN last month landed at position No. 1 on Billboard.com‘s “Hot Tours” list of top-grossing tours with $8.5 million in ticket sales from six performances on their summer tour of Europe. The shows were attended by a total of 121,280 fans, including a two-night, sold-out stand on August 3-4 at the O2 Arena in Lonon, England, where the band played to 27,000 fans. With totals added from this summer’s Europe dates, overall ticket sales from the tour top $42 million from 45 reported concerts.

MAIDEN‘s 15th studio CD, 2010’s “The Final Frontier”, featured 10 tracks that had an average running time of seven minutes and 40 seconds, with the shortest song, “The Alchemist”, clocking in at four minutes and 29 seconds, and the longest, “When The Wild Wind Blows”, lasting ten minutes and 59 seconds.

“The Final Frontier” sold 63,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to enter The Billboard 200 chart at position No. 4.

IRON MAIDEN‘s previous album, 2006’s “A Matter Of Life And Death”, opened with 56,000 units to land at No. 9. This was a notable increase from the 40,000 first-week tally registered by its predecessor, 2003’s “Dance of Death” (which debuted at No. 18 on The Billboard 200 chart), and that of “Brave New World”, which moved 38,000 copies in June 2000 to land at No. 39 on The Billboard 200 chart.

“The Final Frontier” was IRON MAIDEN‘s fourth U.K. No. 1 album. The band previously topped the chart in 1982 with “The Number of the Beast”, in 1988 with “Seventh Son of a Seventh Son” and in 1992 with “Fear of the Dark”.

Breaking out of Greece’s capital city of Athens comes crust/hardcore act Sarabante, which has teamed up with Southern Lord Recordings for a limited edition CD release of the band’s first full-length, “Remnants.” A statement from the band’s publicist reads as follows:

“Sarabante’s existence was brought to the attention of Southern Lord by Brad Boatright of From Ashes Rise/Lebanon, who in the end mastered the band’s ‘Remnants’ debut. The volatile act bears the same burning intensity as the legendary From Ashes Rise and Tragedy, and integrates elements of early Neurosis and other more morose and slower-tempo acts. After enduring the eleven tracks in under thirty four minutes on the album, it’s clear that one of the primary focal points of the Sarabante is their consistent execution of infectious melodies throughout each politically-charged anthem.”

Set for release on July 19th, “Remnants” will see a limited edition production of 1,000 machine-numbered copies as part of the ongoing underground Southern Lord CD series alongside Planks, Acephalix, Xibalba, Drainland, Alpinist and more.
