Interview

Stu Block from Iced Earth talks to Pittsburgh Music Magazine/Stage AE Show April 9

Metal titans ICED EARTH make their triumphant return with the January 21, 2014 release of new studio album ‘PLAGUES OF BABYLON’ on Century Media Records. The band will bring the new album to their North America homeland when their headlining WORLDWIDE PLAGUES TOUR hits our shores April 4 for a six-week run with SABATON and REVAMP in support and hits PITTSBURGH APRIL 9 at STAGE AE.

PGH Music Mag recently caught up with vocalist Stu Block to discuss the new record, tour, and much more…

‘PLAGUES OF BABYLON’ is set for a January 21, 2014 release in North America on Century Media Records, and is streaming now in its entirety on Spotify (the album is out now in the rest of the world).  PMM got an early release from Century Media and we have to tell you that it is classic Iced Earth…in other words brutal. Songs 1-6 form the ‘PLAGUES OF BABYLON story line, part of the ongoing ‘SOMETHING WICKED’ Universe™.  There are some really cool twists and turns as always and it will be a total trip to see live.

Exclusive VIP packages for the entire ICED EARTH North American tour are available now at www.enterthevault.com. VIP packages will remain onsale while supplies last.
