Iced Earth will tour Europe in December with Ensiferum, Kataklysm and Unearth, they’ve confirmed.
The MTV Headbangers Ball trip features dates in Germany, the Netherlands, the UK, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria and the Czech Republic.
Organisers say the tour, will “embody the cutting edge and timeless essence of pure fucking metal” – just like the TV show it’s named after.
Iced Earth mainman Jon Schaffer recently announced that the band’s new studio and headquarters, Independence Hall, was nearing completion, after he sold some of his equipment to fund its development.
He also listed some working titles for tracks set to appear on the band’s 12th album The Judas Goat, including New Dawn, Incorruptible, Beware The Judas Goat, Unbroken/Unbeaten, Universal Truth, Seven Headed Whore and The Great Heathen Army.
