Colorado’s Jag Panzer and Century Media Records will release a strictly limited 7” on black vinyl (500 copies only) around Jag Panzer's appearance on this year’s Bang Your Head festival.
For this collector’s item the band recorded a cover-version of “The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald”, originally by Gordon Lightfoot. The b-side will feature “The Mission (1943)” from their current album “Casting The Stones”.

Guitarist Mark Briody explains the unique choice for a cover-version:

I’ve always loved dramatic, epic music. Songs like “Heaven And Hell” or “Beyond The Realms Of Death” quickly became favorites of mine. But my introduction to this type of song wasn’t even a heavy metal song. The song that first caught my attention was a dark tragic tale of a shipwreck in the Great Lakes. The song was called “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald” and it retold the true story of the sinking of the freighter ship Edmund Fitzgerald. I remember taking my small transistor radio to bed and listening to the radio all night just to hear this song.

The 7” will be available at Bang Your Head, Heavy Magazine, the band and Century Media’s mail order.
