There is no better way for Century Media Records to celebrate their 20th Anniversary in North America than by having the band that propelled them to success here return home. ICED EARTH, one of the most groundbreaking metal bands of all time is extremely excited to announce a return to their roots by partnering back up with Century Media. This new worldwide deal sees the band rejoin the label that released the legendary albums The Dark Saga and Something Wicked This Way Comes as well as all of the early Iced Earth albums. In addition to Iced Earth, Century Media will also release Iced Earth brainchild, Jon Schaffer’s SONS OF LIBERTY project.

Antje Lange, managing director of Century Media Records Europe, comments: “We are extremely happy and proud to welcome Jon Schaffer and his bands SONS OF LIBERTY and ICED EARTH back on the label. Schaffer is one of the most talented and charismatic musicians in metal and it is an honor for us as a label to work with him. Despite an already very successful past, we feel that an even bigger success is in the cards for the future.”
Schaffer further states: “I am excited about the opportunity to work on SONS OF LIBERTY and ICED EARTH with Century Media. This was the label where my career began and there are many memories, some of them great, some of them not. However, we all grew up and are able to see eye to eye on the mission ahead: making sure my creativity gets the best possible outlet. I am much looking forward to this team delivering the goods and releasing some killer music.”

SONS OF LIBERTY: Brush-Fires of The Mind is set for a July 13th release. Schaffer handles all vocals and instrumentation for Sons of Liberty, but the effort also features guest solos by legendary producer Jim Morris, ICED EARTH guitarist Troy Seele and world-class bassist, Ruben Drake. Born from Schaffer’s desire to stimulate curiosity about a pattern of global banking corruption that is undermining the independence of people and their countries, SONS OF LIBERTY aims to spearhead a multi-faceted and peaceful resistance of the tyranny being wrought every day on regular people. Schaffer, in turn, has reverently named his new project after a secret organization comprised of notable United States’ patriots that formed in 1765. These patriots worked fervently to expose and resist the tyranny that the colonists were subjected to, which ultimately led to the American Revolution. For additional information regarding Sons of Liberty and how you can learn more in its cause, head over to www.sons-of-liberty.net.

ICED EARTH has confirmed four special North American shows this fall. Meant as an “Escape From The Studio,” these exclusive dates will also get fans the chance to SONS OF LIBERTY on stage for their first-ever live performances.

VIP packages and exclusive pre-sale tickets via www.icedearth.com are now available. Regular tickets sales via Ticketmaster and all other outlets will not begin until May 7th and will be subject to local service fees.

It's weird how he went back to them...

Anyway, I see this as a good thing. But has this been planned for a while? Or did it just sort of... happen?

Well any history is good to get a foot in the door.
Sure relations were not all that great in the past but the fact that Iced Earth made Century Media alot of cash, and Century Media in turn got the name out there means its the only natural choice.

Century Media has many bands that are making money hand over fist and apparently they have learned they can't fuck over bands if they hope to stay in business. They know how to manage their cashflow.

SPV while having greats like Kreator, Motorhead, Whitesnake, Helloween, and Iced Earth clearly did not manage their money properly.
