Into Eternity: Tim Roth To Rejoin INTO ETERNITY; Completes Iced Earth Tour
Into Eternity:  Tim Roth To Rejoin INTO ETERNITY; Completes Iced Earth Tour
Canadian extreme progressive metal icons INTO ETERNITY wrapped up their North American tour with Iced Earth in Los Angeles on Friday, Oct. 24. It was the band\\'s first-ever tour without founding guitarist Tim Roth, who could not participate for several reasons -- the biggest being that he is about to become a father.

INTO ETERNITY is happy to announce that Roth will rejoin the band for four shows in western Canada this week, including a Winnipeg show alongside Dismember and a headlining appearance on Halloween night at the Zombiefest in Lethbridge, Alberta. Meanwhile, fill-in touring guitarist Sean Maier will now rejoin his primary band, Blessed By A Broken Heart, whose seven-week European tour kicks off on Oct. 30.

Says drummer Steve Bolognese, \\"Iced Earth was a very memorable tour, and it was great to tour with such cool bands and really good guys. There were so many good shows -- one of our best being an off-date in Mexico with Deicide. It was a real treat to meet and hang with those guys.

\\"I am happy to say that we got through the tour even without Tim. I wasn\\'t sure how it was going to go, but we did it -- and now, he\\'s back! I want to again say thanks to Sean Maier for filling in at the last minute so we could make this tour happen, and as always, I want to thank the fans for coming out and supporting us through this time without Tim. We couldn\\'t have done it without you. Cheers!\\"
