FURY UK and WHITE WIZZARD will join ICED EARTH on the European leg of the American metal band’s 2011-2012 World Dystopia Tour.
FURY UK, a three-piece British metal band that combines the rawness of NWOBHM with an aggressive power-metal vibe, has released three full-length albums, with “Way Of Life” being their most recent. FURY UK will open the show.
American heavy-metal band WHITE WIZZARD — with riffs, attitude, and swagger to burn — will tear it up after FURY UK leaves the stage. WHITE WIZZARD has released two EPs and an album titled “Over The Top”. A new album, “Flying Tigers”, is due later this month.
“I’m really looking forward to touring with these guys,” said ICED EARTH mainman Jon Schaffer. “Both bands bring a lot of energy to the table. I know fans will enjoy seeing them as much as we will.”
“Dystopia”, ICED EARTH‘s 10th studio album, is scheduled for release in Europe on October 17 and in the U.S. on October 18 via Century Media. Two bonus tracks have also been recorded for inclusion on special editions of the album.
The release of “Dystopia” will be followed by the most extensive world tour ICED EARTH has ever undertaken.
