ICED EARTH: Video Footage Of BANG YOUR HEAD!!! Performance

Fan-filmed video footage of ICED EARTH's July 16 performance at the Bang Your Head!!! festival in Balingen, Germany can be seen below.

ICED EARTH will headline the "MTV Headbangers Ball" European tour in December. Support on the trek will come from ENSIFERUM, KATAKLYSM and UNEARTH.

ICED EARTH took a break from touring in 2015, primarily due to founder, chief songwriter, and guitarist Jon Schaffer's second cervical fusion surgery.

ICED EARTH fans can expect the next album, tentatively titled "The Judas Goat", to be released in 2017.

Schaffer stated about the band's new material: "The creative direction of the new album is rife with intense and heavy emotions, as one would expect from an ICED EARTH record, as well as a wide variety of lyrical inspirations and themes.

"I am 100 percent confident that the bond our band has forged in these last several years will shine through in the music. It's a brotherhood in every way, and the fans will feel that.

"I couldn't be more proud of these guys and everything we've achieved together.'

Longtime ICED EARTH drummer Brent Smedley has returned to the band for the current recording and touring cycle. Smedley had to step down due to personal family reasons in 2013 shortly before the recording of "Plagues Of Babylon".

"Plagues Of Babylon" sold around 6,300 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 49 on The Billboard 200 chart.
