Operation: Mindcrime have made their track The Fight available to stream.

It’s taken from Geoff Tate and co’s forthcoming second album Resurrection, which will be released on September 23. The track also follows the release of their song Left For Dead last month.

The follow-up to 2015’s The Key features a number of guest musicians including Megadeth bassist David Ellefson, with Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens and Blaze Bayley featuring on the track Taking On The World.

Tate previously said: “I’m excited for people to hear and experience Resurrection because I think it answers some of the questions that were posed in the first album. Musically, it offers some of the most diverse and challenging material that I’ve ever written.”

Operation: Mindcrime will hold a launch party for the album at Eichstetten’s Weingut Rinklin, Germany, on September 24.

Resurrection is available for pre-order via iTunes (opens in new tab), with those purchasing ahead of launch gaining instant access to Left For Dead.
