‘Resurrection Men’, out on July 26 via BMG.

It is available to pre-order now at

“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) that reflect the comic book artwork for Episode 3 which will be released via Z2 comics on July 17.

Check out what some of the Australian media have to say about The Mandrake Project.

Bruce Dickinson. Much to Iron Maiden mainman Steve Harris‘ (probable) chagrin, whenever the air raid siren slips into solo mode, the tunes go with him.” Sentinel Daily

“The Mandrake Project is nothing short of a masterpiece showcasing the talent and vision of Bruce Dickinson. Diverse and dynamic album offers something for everyone.” Wall of Sound 

“After 40 plus years of an iconic music career, Bruce Dickinson shows he is still at his creative best with ‘The Mandrake Project’. Just as “Marvel” has developed a cult following of late, The Mandrake Project looks like doing something similar with music fans.” Amnplify

Bruce Dickinson’s ‘The Mandrake Project,’ invites listeners on an exhilarating journey unlike any before, venturing into uncharted territories not explored within Iron Maiden’s realm. With each track, Dickinson breathes new vitality into the metal genre, showcasing his unparalleled talent and passion. This album is a testament to his enduring legacy as one of metal’s greatest icons.” Metal Roos

“Dickinson is back to his best with a collection of songs that die-hard fans of both his solo work and Iron Maiden will enjoy from start to finish!” – The Rock Pit

Overall, The Mandrake Project is a glimpse into the funfair of Bruce Dickinson’s internal universe. There’s always something new to discover with each listen, and though none of us know our fate, we will go to it laughing… or at least screaming along to some killer tunes. Sense Music Media

The Mandrake Project is a deeper look into the darker side of legendary vocalist Bruce Dickinson’s creativity outside Iron Maiden. What lies there is a snarling beast with big gnashing teeth ready to sweep you away with its heavy riffs and master storytelling. Everblack Media
