Iced Earth will embark on a massive European tour from the end of October until mid-December to introduce 'Dystopia' and their new singer Stu Block to European audiences. Also, this week saw Iced Earth announce their support acts for the European tour: Fury UK and White Wizzard.
Jon Schaffer states: "I'm really looking forward to touring with these guys. Both bands bring a lot of energy to the table. I know fans will enjoy seeing them as much as we will."
Fury UK are a three-piece British metal band that combines the rawness of NWOBHM with an aggressive power-metal vibe. The American White Wizzard – with riffs, attitude, and swagger to burn – will tear it up right after Fury UK.
On October 17th, 2011, Iced Earth's 10th studio album 'Dystopia' will surface in Europe (USA October 18th) via Century Media Records. It will be available as very special Limited Deluxe Box Set (incl. Digipak, bonus songs, buckle, top-flip lighter, wristband, patch, button set and beer coaster), Ltd CD Digipak (with bonus songs and patch), CD, Gatefold LP and as Digital Download!
