The singer’s seventh studio LP – The Mandrake Venture – will be launched on March 1 and adopted by a full blown tour.

Second one from the album, Rain On The Graves, is out this week and sees Bruce on theatrical top form.

Impressed by a wet pay a visit to to poet William Wordsworth’s grave in the Lake District, the major riffing music demonstrates on mortality.

And there is certainly a hefty a nod to the alleged deal blues musician Robert Johnson is stated to have made with the satan in the 1930s.

Legend has it the aspiring musician swapped his soul for guitar mastery at a crossroads in rural Mississippi.

From that minute forth he located himself blessed (or cursed) with mesmerising means.

The Mandrake Challenge is bigger than an album. There is certainly also an accompanying sci-fi comedian e book series, made by Dickinson and illustrated by Staz Johnson, telling a tale of “electricity, abuse and a struggle for identity.”

If all of this is not plenty of, Dickinson will reconvene with Maiden in the autumn for the upcoming leg of the band’s The Foreseeable future Previous entire world tour.

The band, whose renowned mascot is a towering monster known as Eddie, are best regarded for steel anthems these as Quantity of The Beast, Two Minutes To Midnight and Operate For The Hills.

Launched in 1975 by East End bassist Steve Harris, the band have unveiled 17 studio albums and bought much more than 130 million data around the world.
