Will Iron Maiden head back to the studio and embark on a tour in 2015? A Christmas card sent out to the Iron Maiden fan club may hint at a "yes" answer.

Fan club members received the Christmas card, signed by all six band members, a little early this holiday season. The card features Maiden mascot Eddie entering a snow-covered studio as a drunken snowman sits outside guzzling 'Trooper Ale.' Also, there may or may not be ninjas on the studio roof.

A sign reading "Uroton 51" can also be seen on the card, but what does it mean? Fans have pointed out that when rearranged, the sign spells out "On tour 15." Could Iron Maiden be planning to board Flight 666 once again for a string of dates?

On the inside of the Christmas card fans were greeted with the message, "Eddie's got a little Christmas gift for everyone who's been REALLY BAD! Must not be opened until 2015…"

But we want it now!!! Of course, we can only speculate what the message means, but the card does seem to hint at a new album from the heavy metal legends.

Iron Maiden's latest album, 'The Final Frontier,' was released in 2010 to mass acclaim. If the British metallers can deliver more magic like 'The Talisman' or 'When the Wild Wind Blows,' we're in store for another epic record.
