     Stop whatever you are doing Maniacs because metal icons Iron Maiden have dropped a new single called Stratego.  

    Powered by that trademark Iron Maiden gallop, a huge chorus from Bruce Dickinson and some sick leadwork,  Stratego is everything you love about Iron Maiden condensed into just under five minutes of classic metal majesty. 

    The second single from the East London legends upcoming 17th studio album Senjutsu, Stratego   is one of two songs on the 10 track, 82 minutes long album written by guitarist Janick Gers and founder member/ bassist Steve Harris. Recorded back in 2019 at Guillaume Tell Studios, the track was produced by Kevin ‘Caveman’ Shirley & co-produced by Steve Harris.

    Listen to Stratego and check out the awesome artwork below now! 
     

    Stratego follows The Writing On The Wall and its  brilliant animated video clip, as our first two bites of Senjutsu  which will be released globally on September 3rd.

    A ton of formats of the record are now available for pre-oder  via the Maniacs Store including a limited edition silver and black vinyl variant. 

    Check them out via the Maniacs store now.

    Speaking on the upcoming album vocalist Bruce Dickonson said: 

    “We’re all really excited about this album. We recorded it  back in early 2019 during a break in the Legacy tour so we could maximize our touring yet still have a long set up period before release to prepare great album art and something special as a video. Of course the pandemic delayed things more - so much for the best laid plans – or should that be ‘strategies’!?  The songs are very varied, and some of them are quite long. There’s also one or two songs which sound pretty different to our usual style, and I think Maiden fans will be surprised -  in a good way, I hope!"
