New Iced Earth Album Title - "Dystopia"

Hello gang!

Just a quick update for you from the road. We had a great weekend playing at Sweden Rock Friday and the Rock Hard festival in Germany on Saturday. The band’s having a lot of fun, and today we begin rehearsing the new songs for the forthcoming CD, titled “Dystopia.” We begin master tracking in Florida in 2 weeks and will be traveling between Europe and the US this summer to play festivals and finish the new album. I can honestly say that I haven’t had this many songs give me goose bumps since we recorded Something Wicked This Way Comes, way back in 1998, so this is also very exciting.

As you can imagine, it’s a very busy time for us. I think we’re all having emotional ups and downs as we’re coming to the end of an era with Matt’s retirement, and we’re also very excited about the future with Stu coming onboard, so it’s a little bit of a roller coaster ride for us. However, we are having a killer time, and Matt is performing at his absolute best and going out with pure class and style, which is always the way he rolls.

We also had a great time hanging out with the guys in Down last night at the Rock Hard festival. Freddie and my manager joined them onstage for a nice jam at the end of the show. It was brilliant and a lot of fun.

We’ll be keeping you posted on updates as things move along through the summer.

Best to you all!!

Jon

Looking forward to it. Stu Block is a great vocalist so I'm looking forward to how he sounds with Iced Earth. Maybe they will be able to keep him around for a long time.

Will give it a listen, not much expectation for it though.

I'll be listening and buy for sure. Iced Earth is a band I won't give up on unless I really hear them fuck up. They got close but not there yet. We'll see what happens with the new album.

I'll check it out when it's released, but I'm not holding my breath. Block's a pretty good vocalist, so I'm interested in where this will go. Haven't given up faith on IE, but I don't expect to be particularly blown away either.

Lol, dude. Old news.

I'm disappointed he's not recording the vocals for the new album before Block takes over though.

He was awesome on Friday. Does not look or sound like a man who should be retiring at all.
