North America - the wait is over!!
We are bringing our new album to the North America homeland when the WORLDWIDE PLAGUES TOUR hits North American shores April 4 for a six-week run with SABATON and REVAMP in support.
"We feel that the package with SABATON and REVAMP is very strong and we are very excited to tour the U.S. and Canada again and kick some major ass!”, says Jon Schaffer.
Our VIP-Ticket page for the "Plagues of Babylon"-Tour is now live.
The packages include:
• Early entry into the venue
• Meet & Greet / Signing Session with the band
• Photo-op with the band
• 7” picture disk vinyl single with one exclusive, unreleased demo from “Plagues of Babylon” on the B-side
• Iced Earth messenger bag
• Exclusive VIP-T-Shirt
• Exclusive VIP-laminate
• Exclusive VIP sticker set
tonight is our first show in support of Volbeat in Milan, Italy and we start selling the limited edition, blood-red vinyl 12” at the show.
We thought it would be cool for more people to be able to hear the title track of the new album, so without further ado: here’s a lyric video for “PLAGUES OF BABYLON.” This video also gives you a sneak peak into some of the killer art that will be featured in the final version once it hits the shelves.
Band and Crew have gathered and we have begun rehearsals for the Volbeat-Tour that kicks off this Friday in Milan. We are really excited to begin this new touring cycle even though it feels like the previous one only ended yesterday.
It will certainly be killer to see you guys out there and hang with my brother Michael and the guys in Volbeat and their team.
I'm happy to announce that we are once again being joined on tour by our friends in Warbringer for our Headline European Tour starting in 2014.
We are also welcoming Elm Street from Australia as well. I was impressed with their energy and their music. I think it will be a great package and a great tour.
See you out there!
We are proud to present you with the new cover art for “Plagues of Babylon”.
This is a seriously heavy album with a seriously brutal album cover. I’m sure it will go down as a classic in the epic ICED EARTH catalog.

Hello brothers and sisters,
I’m proud to announce that we have completed all the tracking for the new album, “Plagues of Babylon”.
There’s quite a selection of epic heaviness on your way, for release early next year.
Congratulations to the Wacken Open Air organisers for a record-breaking sell-out for next year's W:O:A -- we are excited to be there and kick some serious ass!
On a completely different note, Jon became involved in the Silver Circle Movie and Pasha and the good people at SILVER CIRCLE have put together a very cool video for SPIRIT OF THE TIMES from Jon's project
