BLAZE BAYLEY

BLAZE BAYLEY is a singer/songwriter born 29th May 1963 in Birmingham, England. Having started his professional music career in WOLFSBANE in 1984, his career elevated to global heights when he joined the world’s most important metal band IRON MAIDEN, with whom he released two albums and toured worldwide between 1994 and 1999.

After leaving Iron Maiden, Blaze embarked on a solo career, during which he has so far released 11 albums and has enjoyed an enviable reputation as one of the hardest working artists touring worldwide.

In 2015 Blaze celebrated the 15th anniversary of his first solo release ‘Silicon Messiah’ and during the period 2016-2018 has released a trilogy of albums following his ‘Infinite Entanglement’ story which is based on a sci-fi concept. Part I was ‘Infinite Entanglement’ released in March 2016, Part II ‘Endure and Survive’ in March 2017 and the concluding Part III ‘The Redemption of William Black’ was released in March 2018.

In addition to his headline world tours, in 2016 Blaze joined DISTURBED onstage at Download Festival, one of the UK’s premier events, for a rendition of ‘Baba O’Riley’ by THE WHO. He was also accompanied onstage in Poland by Swedish metalheads SABATON for a version of the Maiden classic ‘Man on the Edge’.

Each of the ‘Infinite Entanglement’ trilogy releases was promoted with world tours including a 6 week tour of North America in 2017. During that tour the editor of UK-based Powerplay magazine shadowed Blaze and his band on the Canada dates, leading to a 3-page tour special and front cover for Blaze and guitarist Chris Appleton.

In 2018 Blaze received an accolade in the highly influential Sweden Rock magazine where he was voted #67 in the top 100 greatest rock and metal singers of all time, high praise indeed, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Jon Bon Jovi for example. Also, amongst his summer festival appearances in 2018 he was proud to play Hammerfest in UK, Dong Festival in Germany and Sabaton Open Air in Sweden.

In 2019 Blaze is celebrating the 25th anniversary of his joining Iron Maiden and a selection of festivals will include a specially selected Iron Maiden setlist from his era with the band. These festival appearances include Sweden Rock (on the 25,000 capacity Rock Stage) and Rock the Coast Festival, Spain, alongside some of the biggest artists in the business, such as Rainbow and the Scorpions.

On March 1st Blaze releases a live album and DVD called ‘Live in France’ which was recorded near Nancy, in May 2018.

Blaze has a very stable line-up of musicians as his backing band picked from British metallers Absolva; Chris Appleton (guitar), Martin McNee (drums) and Karl Schramm (bass). It is these three musicians who have recorded the ‘Infinite Entanglement’ trilogy and indeed Chris Appleton is co-producer and co-writer. The album was mastered by Ade Emsley, known for his work with Iron Maiden and stunning artwork provided by Akirant Illustration who notably also works for Iron Maiden as well as Star Wars in the film industry.

Having recently completed the world tour for ‘The Redemption of William Black’ in Latin America, the current tour is entitled ‘Tour of the Eagle Spirit’, named after the final song in the trilogy. It begins in Europe in March, UK in March-April, North America April-May, then after the above-mentioned summer festival shows, there are additional UK and European dates in the late-Summer / early-Fall, after which Blaze and the band begin work on the 12th studio release.
