Metal Hall of Fame inductee Blaze Bayley (Iron Maiden singer 1994-1999) has released the third single & video for the song “Mind Reader”, off his forthcoming new album “Circle Of Stone”, which will arrive on February 23rd, 2024.

Says Blaze… “I wish to thank the guys at Lion Island Media for their brilliant work shooting & editing the video,  & thanks also to Paul at the fantastic Priory Park Boxing Club for allowing me to use the gym as the perfect location for shooting this video & for the guidance given while shooting. I also wish to thank my incredible fans for their pre-orders so far & wonderful support & feedback.”

In the video Blaze repeatedly gets up off the canvas, with a nod to the world famous Rocky movies where, as we well know, Sylvester Stallone‘s character defiantly keeps getting to his feet. “Mind Reader” is the opening track of “Circle of Stone”

Recent times have been a roller-coaster ride for Blaze. Following on from the successful “Infinite Entanglement” trilogy (2016-2018), around which interest in his career was clearly elevated, he then moved further forward with the critically acclaimed “War Within Me” album (2021), whilst touring worldwide. However, he then suffered a severe heart attack early in 2023, requiring life-saving quadruple bypass surgery. Recovery was slow but 6 UK shows towards the end of 2023 felt like a real triumph, quickly followed by a tour with his original (pre-Iron Maiden) band Wolfsbane

Thankfully, the recording of the new album had been completed just 2 days before the heart attack & the record was put on the ‘backburner’ whilst health matters & recovery progressed. Blaze‘s regular team recorded the album with Christopher Appleton (of UK band Absolva) engineering, mixing & co-producing with Blaze (split between their home studios in Manchester & Birmingham respectively), & Ade Emsley mastering. Appleton also played lead guitar alongside his brother Luke Appleton on power guitar, Martin Mcnee on drums & Karl Schramm on bass.
