Iced Earth have released a new trailer for their forthcoming DVD 'Festivals Of The Wicked'. The DVD is a three-concert, nearly six-hour extravaganza.

'Festivals Of The Wicked' is released in Europe on June 27th 2011 and the USA on July 12th 2011 and you can see the trailer on Iced Earth's Facebbok page by clicking here.

Matt Barlow will front Iced Earth for the last time on the band's seven European festival dates which are as follows; 10.06.2011 Sweden Rock Festival
11.06.2011 Germany Rock Hard Festival
24.06.2011 Graspop Metal Meeting
25.06.2011 Germany Rock am Härtsfeldsee
15.07.2011 Germany Dong Open Air
16.07.2011 Finland Ilosaarirock
06.08.2011 Germany Wacken Open Air

After these dates, Stu Block will take over as frontman and the band will embark on a full scale European tour in November.

Stu Block said back in March after being announced as new singer: "Iced Earth fans are wonderful, wonderful people. The music is so passionate. So they're passionate, and very loyal to the band. I am, too. I'm a huge fan of Iced Earth myself. So I share that same passion, and I will show it on stage. I think the fans are really going to dig it.

"It's a huge honor to be doing this, to be part of this team," he continued. "It's a dream come true, for sure."

And Jon Schaffer is totally stoked as well. "This is a new beginning," he said. "It's game-on time. Iced Earth is going to record and tour like it never has before. The band is really amped-up and ready to hit the ground running in November."
