BRUCE DICKINSON has announced a limited edition CD release of his new single „Resurrection Men“, out July 26 via BMG.

„The surf guitar in the intro – the Dick Dale part – that’s me,“ Dickinson reveals about „Resurrection Men“ amidst the dates of his acclaimed first solo tour of Europe in two decades.

„We were just playing around with the tremolo setting, writing down the chords, and I was like, ‚Okay, this is kind of cool!‘ It was like, ‚What if Quentin Tarantino made a metal record?‘ Then it goes in a different direction, we get a little heavy, and we did this whole middle section, and it was like, ‚Did you guys just channel Geezer Butler in another life?“ That was early Sabbath, „Behind the Wall of Sleep. I just thought, ‚Oh my God, this is heavy!“

The three-track CD comes in a gatefold digi-sleeve and each includes a limited edition double-sided Mandrake „movie poster“ (375mm x 285mm), available exclusively with pre-orders of the CD through the official Mandrake Project store

The artwork mirrors the comic book artwork for Episode 3 of the album’s comics, which will be released on July 17th via Z2 Comics.
