Iron Maiden released the official video of its new single, “The Writing On the Wall,” to YouTube on July 15.

The band also released the official music video for “False Start”, which fans can see here: Eastwood, which actually began in 2016, is a project that Crutchfield hopes will shake off any pigeonhole people have placed him in because of his hardcore roots. “I think that people might be caught off-guard by this album, and I hope they are, because I want to smash that cliché that if you’re into death metal or hardcore you can’t play or listen to other kinds of music.” That’s exactly what the eleven songs of ‘It […] For more, go to: (Source)
