BLAZE BAYLEY: 'Robot' Video Posted Online

February 20, 2009

"Robot", the new Kris McManus-directed video from former IRON MAIDEN/WOLFSBANE vocalist Blaze Bayley, can be viewed below. The track comes off Bayley's new album, "The Man Who Would Not Die", which was mixed by former WOLFSBANE guitarist Jase Edwards at Jase's studio in Tamworth, Staffordshire, England. Released on July 7, 2008 via Bayley's own independent label (with additional licensing to various countries),the CD was engineered by James Dunkley, produced by Blaze Bayley and it takes Blaze in new songwriting directions, ushering in a new phase of an already renowned career. It is also the first recorded showcase for Blaze's new lineup.

Blaze Bayley filmed his December 13, 2008 concert at Z7 in Pratteln, Switzerland for an upcoming DVD, titled "Live In Z7". Blaze reportedly dedicated the song "While You Were Gone" to his wife/manager Debbie Hartland, who died in late September after suffering a brain hemorrhage while in the hospital.

Blaze Bayley previously stated about the upcoming DVD, "The show will be the full 'The Tour That Will Not Die' set with plenty of new tracks from the latest album, some old favorites and also some brand new previously unreleased tracks. The first 500 DVDs sold through [the official Blaze Bayley] website will be strictly limited-edition double disc sets, with T-shirt and commemorative wristband available only with this packaged, signed and numbered (in purchasing order) by the band. The DVD will also feature extras and highlights from the warm-up shows that stretch to the Big Bash. Both Dudley [U.K. concert on December 29] and Z7 are also being recorded for not only the DVD but a live album. Jase Edwards will once again be handling production duties. Filming will be done by Kris McManus of Animus Pictures. The DVD is expected to ship in February to be available for March."
