This awesome vintage band tee is for iconic heavy metal band Iron Maiden. The shirt features the band's mascot, the sinister and skeletal Eddie the Head, who was first designed by Derek Riggs back in 1980. The shirt also features the official tie dye of Iron Maiden, designed specifically just for the band!
This amazing keepsake is from the early 90s, when the group was taking part in their No Prayer on the Road Tour, which was designed to help promote their 1990 album No Prayer for the Dying. It was the band's eighth studio album and the first to showcase the talents of guitarist Janick Gers, who was recruited to replace Adrian Smith. Gers later remained in the band even after Smith rejoined at the end of the decade.
The beginning of the 90s saw several changes in Iron Maiden and their musical direction. No Prayer for the Dying had the band going back to the straightforward rock sound of their earlier records, and abandoning the synthesizer heavy style that they had adapted in the 80s. Their stage shows were also scaled back, and they decided they wanted to use less elaborate props and instead capture the energy of the club shows from earlier on in their career.
Some notable songs that were released off of No Prayer for the Dying included "Holy Smoke" which was written in response to the multiple televangelist scandals that took place in the late 1980s, and "Bring Your Daughter...to the Slaughter", which was originally written and recorded for the A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child soundtrack. While the soundtrack version won a golden Raspberry Award for Worst Original Song, the Iron Maiden version made it to the top of the UK singles chart.
