Steve ‘N’ Seagulls have shared a cover of Iron Maiden’s Aces High.

It’s lifted from the Finnish outfit’s upcoming second album Brothers In Farms, due out on September 9. The record will include their versions of Metallica, Guns N’ Roses, Nirvana and Megadeth songs. The artwork and tracklist can be viewed below.

They say of the video: “Sometimes, in order to make things happen, all you need is a bunch of crazy ideas, mash ‘em together, and wait for the results. This is basically how we started with our first video from the upcoming album.

“We were lucky to get some enthusiastic, creative, and hard-working people around to get it done. You can imagine that mixing miniature aircrafts, cows, pyrotechnics, and belly dancers with the band doesn’t necessarily come together naturally. But it did. And we’re happy about it.”

Steve ‘N’ Seagulls have also previously recorded a cover of Iron Maiden’s The Trooper – and they gave AC/DC classic Thunderstruck a bluegrass makeover in 2014.

Brothers In Farms can be pre-ordered via iTunes. They’ll tour the US next month in support of the release.
