Iron Maiden‘s Bruce Dickinson has announced a new solo single, “Resurrection Men,” due out July 26th via BMG. “The surf guitar at the intro – the Dick Dale bit – that’s me!” explains Dickinson about “Resurrection Men.” “We were just mucking around with the tremolo setting, we put the chords down and I went, ‘Ok, that’s kinda cool!’ It was like, ‘What if Quentin Tarantino made a metal record?’” he adds. “Then it goes somewhere different, we get a bit heavy, and we did this whole middle section and it was like, ‘Were you just channeling Geezer Butler in another life?’ It was early Sabbath – Behind the Wall of Sleep. Just, ‘Oh my god that’s heavy!’”

The three-track CD comes in a gatefold digi-sleeve and includes a limited number of double-sided Mandrake Movie Posters with pre-orders via the official Mandrake Project store, reflecting the comic book artwork for Episode 3 which will be released via Z2 comics on July 17th.

The two CD bonus songs, “Afterglow Of Ragnarok” and “Abduction,” were recorded live at Dickinson’s show in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on May 4, 2024, as part of his current world tour for The Mandrake Project.
