American power metal veterans Iced Earth will be teaming up with progressive metal outfit Symphony X for a thirty plus date tour of North America in January it has been revealed. This will be in support of Iced Earth's brand new album, "Dystopia" and the latest Symphony X record, "Iconoclast," which was released last June. Support on the tour will come from thrash metal group, Warbringer.

"I'm excited to tour with Symphony X," Iced Earth founder Jon Schaffer said. "They're phenomenal musicians and very cool guys. This co-headliner tour will be a great experience for the fans. It is also way overdue for us to play a proper tour of North America. Get ready!"

Symphony X guitarist Michael Romeo echoes Schaffer’s enthusiasm.

"We are very excited about the upcoming North American Tour with Iced Earth," Romeo said. "We first met Jon & the guys a few years back and they were really cool. When the idea of a co-headline tour surfaced, we thought it would be awesome. The fans can expect a night of great music from both bands. We look forward to seeing you all real soon!"
