A few days ago, we’ve shared a teaser from Iron Maiden, which fans think is about an upcoming 17th album. In the first teaser, Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson was inviting all fans to an event called Belshazzar’s Feast. It wasn’t a long video; it was just Bruce Dickinson inviting fans to the event which will take place on July 15.
“July the 15th. Rain or shine, heaven or hell, man or beast, you’re invited to Belshazzar’s Feast… But your mum can’t come.”
Those were Bruce Dickinson’s words from the invitation/teaser video. Even though that was the first “official” teaser about Belshazzar’s Feast, this was not the first time Iron Maiden fans heard these words.
In different events, they’ve seen Bruce Dickinson with a Belshazzar’s Feast t-shirt but he said nothing about it but “It is right in front of you”. There were also posters found by Maiden fans saying “WOTW” which they think it’s referring to Writing on The Wall.
New Teaser of Iron Maiden Event
Now, while fans are creating theories about the upcoming Iron Maiden event, they’ve shared another video to heat things up. Another short video took its place on Iron Maiden’s official social media accounts earlier today. This was a 15 seconds long video with a Belshazzar’s Feast poster. After the poster is shown for a couple of seconds a mysterious, scary hand picks up the poster and WOTW initials show up on the wall.
Even though they haven’t confirmed or said anything about those fan theories, Iron Maiden is now confirming the fan theories with these teasers. If the fan theories are correct, we will get the Iron Maiden 17th album announcement during the Belshazzar’s Feast and the album is going to be called “Writing On The Wall”.

We will need to wait for a few days to see the event Bruce Dickinson was inviting all the fans to for more confirmation. Iron Maiden has released no new stuff since 2015. Their recent musical work was in 2015’s The Book Of Souls.
It was the most recent and the longest Maiden album 92 minutes long. The lyrical work on the album was mostly based on death, soul, mortality, and reincarnation. During the time when they released nothing they often got questions about their upcoming musical work and got questions to confirm some theories. In 2019, frontman Bruce Dickinson talked during a concert and said:
“New IRON MAIDEN songs — sooner than you think.”
We will update you with more news.
