Heavy metal legends Iced Earth will be touring North America starting next week, hitting the road with Volbeat, Hellyeah and The Sixxis for an extensive 5-week trek. The group will be touring in support of their 10th studio album "Dystopia."
In regards to this upcoming tour, Jon Schaffer (rhythm, lead and acoustic guitars/backing vocals) comments: "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."
To commemorate the tour, Iced Earth are releasing a limited tour edition of "Dystopia." Currently available only at the merchandise stands on the tour, the 2-disc Dystopia Tour Edition contains the original full-length album, as well as b-side covers of Iron Maiden "The Trooper" and Black Sabbath "Mob Rules," as well as the classic 17-minute Iced Earth track "Dante's Inferno" re-recorded with vocalist Stu Block. The bonus disc also contains both music videos from "Dystopia" - the title track and "Anthem" - as well as a 'Making of Dystopia' studio interview with the band, and exclusive cell phone skins and desktop backgrounds.
