“Hello brothers and sisters! It is my honor to share some great news with you: Iced Earth will be supporting VOLBEAT on a North American tour starting on June 18th, 2012. The bill is rounded off by HELLYEAH!

I’m completely stoked, Volbeat is one of my all-time favorite bands, and Michael and the boys are great people. There is a lot of mutual respect and admiration, and I think we are in for a hell of a good time! This will be a package that won’t soon be forgotten, I’m sure of that.

I want to thank Volbeat for the invitation, and I look forward to many years of laying down the metal as both bands continue to grow and reach new audiences around the world.

We will see you on the road soon!”

As previously reported, Iced Earth are adding on more shows to their massive World Dystopia Tour.

The show in Bangalore, India on June 16th is a first visit to India for the band and the show on August 19th in Limassol marks a much-clamored return to Cyprus, only eight months after their last show there. The show is being filmed and recorded for an upcoming DVD/CD release.

“The decision of where to do the next IE live album and DVD was not an easy one. We have experienced so many amazing audiences around the world that we really wish we could film them all. However, the electricity and atmosphere of the first show in Cyprus was so killer that we are convinced this is the best place to do our next DVD. Who knows what the future holds? There will be many more albums and touring cycles… your city may be next,” says Jon Schaffer.

In other news, bass player Freddie Vidales has announced he will leave Iced Earth after the Chinese shows this April.

Due to the band’s massive touring commitments, there was immediate need for a replacement and Luke Appleton (of FURY UK, with whom Iced Earth toured in Europe last winter) has stepped up to the plate and will be joining the tour in time for the show in India.

ICED EARTH CONFIRMED TO PLAY UK BLOODSTOCK FEST

February 3rd, 2012
ICED EARTH

ICED EARTH

The North American leg of Iced Earth’s 2011-2012 World Dystopia Tour has just barely gotten underway. But the band has already been booked to play the Bloodstock Festival this August.

“We are looking forward to returning to Bloodstock in 2012, our second time after 2008. The UK shows we played on the European leg of our World Dystopia Tour last fall were some of the best on the tour and we cannot wait to bang our heads with the UK minions again!” says Jon Schaffer of ICED EARTH.

At Bloodstock, Iced Earth will share the stage with metal stalwarts Behemoth, Alice Cooper, Paradise Lost, Dimmu Borgir, Hatebreed, Anvil, and many others.

Visit the official Bloodstock web site: http://www.bloodstock.uk.com/ for details.

Released October 2011 via Century Media Records, Dystopia – Iced Earth’s 10th studio album – debuted at #67 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and has since received rave reviews from fans and critics alike. Revolver named Dystopia one of the 20 Best Albums of 2011 and declared, “Twenty years after releasing their self-titled debut, this Florida fivesome has never sounded better.”

Iced Earth’s North American co-headline tour with Symphony X concludes March 11 in Clifton Park, New York. At that point, Iced Earth plays five more dates without Symphony X. (See the Iced Earth web site for complete list of tour dates.)

Jon Schaffer formed Iced Earth in Tampa, Florida, in 1984. Since then, Iced Earth has released 10 studio albums, one live album, two compilations, three boxed sets, and several DVDs. Thanks to massive worldwide sales — and rabidly loyal fans – Iced Earth has earned a seat in the pantheon of America’s most successful heavy metal bands.

Iced Earth is: Jon Schaffer (rhythm, lead and acoustic guitars/backing vocals), Stu Block (lead vocals), Freddie Vidales (bass guitar/backing vocals), Troy Seele (lead guitar) and Brent Smedley (drums).

Next up: China.

 

“The World Dystopia Tour has taken Iced Earth to places the band has never been before,” said Iced Earth founder and mastermind Jon Schaffer. “We are about to open yet another exciting chapter in touring by announcing our first-ever shows in China. Playing Beijing and Shanghai is something we have been looking forward to for a long time. Chinese metal heads: get ready to rage with us!!”

ICED EARTH “ANTHEM” MUSIC VIDEO PREMIERS

January 24th, 2012

ICED EARTH

ICED EARTH

The music video for “Anthem” – shot in Cologne, Germany during the European leg of Iced Earth’s world tour – makes its global premiere today on Revolvermag.com.

“We had a blast making that video,” said Iced Earth main man Jon Schaffer. “I think the fans can see it on our faces. ‘Anthem’ captures the energy of our live shows, as well as the fun we’re having together as a band.”

Produced and directed by Kosch Fabian Film, “Anthem” is the second music video released from Iced Earth’s highly acclaimed 10th studio album Dystopia.

Released October 2011 via Century Media Records, Dystopia debuted at #67 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and has since received rave reviews from fans and critics alike.

Metal-Rules.com chose Dystopia #2 in the best of 2011 and declared, “If you are a fan of Iced Earth, then yeah, you need to have this. However, any fan of metal should probably have this. His best work in years!

Dystopia is supported by the most extensive and far-reaching world tour in Iced Earth history. The North American co-headline tour with Symphony X begins January 31 in Hartford, Connecticut, and concludes March 11 in Clifton Park, New York. At that point, Iced Earth plays five more dates without Symphony X. (All concert dates listed below.)

ICED EARTH – Jon Schaffer

January 2nd, 2012

DSC_9116.JPG

JON SCHAFFER

INTERVIEW BY ARTO LEHTINEN AND MARKO SYRJALA

Iced Earth led by mastermind guitarist Jon Schaffer has gone thru several difficult periods but always survived as a winner. When the bands longtime singer Matt Barlow announced his retirment from Iced Earth again, fans were entirely stunned. Last summer the band did a farewell tour with Barlow and after that the new singer Stu Block stepped in. Block was recruited from the Canadian band Into Eternity. The new Iced Earth album DYSTOPIA literally blew fans away by Stu Block’s skills to sing such a varied register and in general DYSTOPIA presented a more aggressive and still melodic Iced Earth. Before the show Metal-Rules.com had an utter pleasant task to interview Jon Schaffer.

ICED EARTH Guitarist/Founder Jon Schaffer Issues New SONS OF LIBERTY EP; Audio Samples Online

December 24th, 2011
SONS OF LIBERTY

SONS OF LIBERTY

ICED EARTH guitarist/founder Jon Schaffer released a new 5-song SONS OF LIBERTY EP via iTunes on December 22nd. He has issued the following statement:

“Hello friends,

I’m proud to present you with the SOL Spirit Of The Times 5-track-EP, which is now ready for release. It will only be available on iTunes, and many other digital channels, as we have chosen to not involve a record label for now. We wanted to do this directly from us to you.

It is my sincere hope that this EP will continue to spread brushfires of liberty in the minds of people from all corners of the globe. I wish I would have had time to write, record, and mix more songs, but with the intense and demanding schedule that Iced Earth is requiring from me, this is the best I could do.

On this recording, I was once again joined by Jim Morris (guitar solos, backing vocals) and Ruben Drake (bass guitar). Jim and I programmed the drums in order to keep recording costs down. As you know, SOL is about the message and the idea, but there are costs involved to keep it going. Though I still encourage you to make copies and pass them out to everyone you can, there will not be a free download available this time around.

Due to my recording and touring schedule with Iced Earth, I have not been as present as I would like to be in the cause for liberty. Please know that I stand with all of you freedom fighters in spirit, regardless of what race you are, what language you speak, or which God you choose, or not choose, to worship. I will be there when duty calls, count on it.

The free human spirit is rising all over the planet. I’ve been fortunate enough in my travels to speak with some amazing and very awake people in the last few years, and I can honestly and gladly state, that we are having an effect.

Continue to educate yourselves, think for yourselves, use your power of discernment, and most importantly; be there for each other.

Good people all over the world can band together and make this a world of peace and prosperity for all of its inhabitants if only we truly connect with the power and will of the free human spirit.

Thanks so much for supporting the cause!”

In Liberty,
Jon Schaffer

The tracklist is as follows:

‘Alive’
‘Full Spectrum Dominance’
‘Molon Labe’
‘Mind Control’
‘Spirit Of The Times’

Purchase the EP via iTunes here. Check out the Sons Of Liberty Facebook page at this location.

Three full length audio samples are available below:

“A special THANK YOU to all of our fans in Europe who keep the torch burning for Iced Earth…who showed up at our shows (sometimes in spite of having to travel a great distance to be there)… and were so kind to us along the way. It was a fantastic tour, with last night’s capacity crowd at the Pavilion in Cyprus the icing on the cake. What an amazing audience! It was the perfect way to end the European leg of the 2011-2012 World Dystopia Tour.

Much love to all of our fans in Europe. We’ll be back!”

Schaffer formed Iced Earth in Tampa, Florida, in 1984. Since then, he has released 10 studio albums, the newest being the highly-acclaimed Dystopia (October, 2011) – which debuted at #67 on the Billboard Top 200 chart – one live album, two compilations, three boxed sets, and several DVDs. Thanks to massive worldwide sales — and rabidly loyal fans – Iced Earth has earned a seat in the pantheon of America’s most successful heavy metal bands.
