Bruce Dickinson has announced a limited edition CD release for his new single ‘Resurrection Men’, out on July 26th via BMG which is available to pre-order now.

“The surf guitar at the intro – the Dick Dale bit – that’s me!” explains Dickinson about ‘Resurrection Men’, in between dates on his hugely acclaimed first solo tour of Europe in two decades.

“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?’ Then it goes somewhere different, we get a bit heavy, and we did this whole middle section and it was like, ‘Were you just channelling 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 gatefold digi-sleeve and includes a limited number of double-sided Mandrake ‘Movie Posters’ (375mm x 285mm) for pre-orders via the official Mandrake Project store only (www.themandrakeproject.com), reflecting the comic book artwork for Episode 3 which will be released via Z2 comics on July 17th.
