This awesome vintage rock tee was made in the 90s and it has become perfectly distressed over the years with a style that perfectly reflects the rock and roll attitude. The shirt is for the iconic heavy metal band Iron Maiden and it is a keepsake from the group's No Prayer On the Road Tour from the early 90s, which promoted their eighth studio album No Prayer for the Dying. The front of the shirt features a graphic of the band's beloved mascot, the skeletal Eddie who was originally designed by Derek Riggs.
No Prayer for the Dying, was the first album to feature Janick Gers on guitar, who replaced Adrian Smith. This was Iron Maiden's first lineup change since 1982. The album stood apart from some of the band's previous releases by straying away from a more synthesizer heavy sound and instead focusing on a more straightforward rock style, similar to their early work. The lyrical content of the songs was also more political than past albums. The band addressed religious exploitation with the song "Holy Smoke" and social concerns with "Public Enema Number One". The album also included Iron Maiden's only UK No. 1 single, a re-recording of the song "Bring Your Daughter...to the Slaughter" which singer Bruce Dickison originally wrote for the Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child soundtrack.
The No Prayer on the Road Tour saw the a departure from the band's notably large scale and elaborate stage shows of the 1980s. The group felt that the over the top props and special effects were starting to get out of hand, and chose to scale them back moving forward. Opening acts during the tour included Wolfsbane, Anthrax, The Almighty, and King's X.
Fits like a modern unisex adult medium. This shirt is distressed with lots of fading and holes, see pics.
