Bruce Dickinson

Renowned around the world as one of the greatest and most distinctive heavy metal vocalists of all time, Bruce Dickinson is best known as the lead singer of the iconic British band, Iron Maiden, who he joined in 1981 and who have sold well over 100 million albums. He has also become globally renowned as an author, pilot, broadcaster, brewer, businessman, sportsman, spoken-word performer, screenwriter and internationally successful solo artist.

His first solo album, Tattooed Millionaire, was released in May 1990, with its follow-up Balls To Picasso four years later (1994). It was on this second album that Dickinson first started working with guitarist Roy Z and despite a one album hiatus, he was joined again by him for all his subsequent solo studio albums - Accident Of Birth (1997), The Chemical Wedding (1998) and Tyranny Of Souls (2005).

Prior to Dickinson’s third solo album Skunkworks (1996) there was a landmark event in his storied career as he led his touring band to perform in war-torn, occupied Bosnia. The subsequent documentary, Scream For Me Sarajevo, became an award winning movie (2018) and soundtrack album. He was made an Honorary Citizen of Sarajevo in 2019 when he last visited the country.

Aside from continued touring and recording with Iron Maiden, Dickinson found time to release his Sunday Times best-selling autobiography, What Does this Button do in 2017 and subsequently toured it around the world, billed as An Evening With Bruce Dickinson.

Always on the back burner was a desire to create another solo musical project and in 2021 Dickinson finally had the opportunity to focus on that anew. He turned once more to Roy Z to work on some unfinished ideas together and that rapidly became his forthcoming seventh studio album, The Mandrake Project, which will be released in early 2024, via a worldwide deal with BMG.

With The Mandrake Project the celebrated polymath is creating a whole new world in music, and beyond. The Mandrake Project could well be the crowning achievement of Dickinson’s solo career… so far!
