MaidenFans.com reports that Iron Maiden drummer Nick McBrain phoned in to the "Friday Night Rocks" show on New York's Q104.3 FM this past Friday, August 27, where he was interviewed by radio personality Eddie Trunk. During the interview, when asked about what is going on with the band at the moment, McBrain had this to say:

We're gonna take the rest of the year off. We're planning on starting working late April or the end of April...first week of May. We're gonna prepare a tour much like we did last year, which was the "Give Me Ed" tour, which is gonna be like going out and playing the summer festivals. So we'll do a mini-tour... Hopefully in America we'll be able to come over here and play, like, maybe three or four weeks of festivals - who knows, it may be even longer, 'cause in the summertime there's lots going on - and then do some over in Europe. Then we'll take a little bit of time off at the end of the summer, and the general plan is - I'm not sure, time frame-wise - but towards the end of next year, we'll write and record a new album. Then, I guess that will place us in 2006. And then we'll do the whole thing again - summer festivals and then...like we did on the last "Give Me Ed" tour and then "Dance Of Death." And I think that's the general plan. There may be slight changes in there, but you never know.

The audio file of the entire 25-minute interview is currently available for download here (mp3 - 17.8 MB).
