Sons Of Liberty: Jon Schaffer’s SONS OF LIBERTY’s Debut Album In Stores Now; Prepare For Select Live Shows This Fall
Jon Schaffer’s SONS OF LIBERTY’s Debut Album In Stores Now;
Prepare For Select Live Shows This Fall
ICED EARTH mastermind, Jon Schaffer, has developed a new project, SONS OF LIBERTY, with the purpose of spreading awareness about the current state of affairs worldwide. Schaffer’s goal for this project is not to sell records, t-shirts or tickets, but rather wake people up and to get them to start researching and talking with each other. The album hits stores today and features a lengthy and very detailed booklet with stellar content. The brand new website www.sons-of-liberty.net is now active, so be sure to head over now to find out what this message is all about.
Schaffer further states: “I'm proud to finally see the physical release of Brush-Fires of The Mind happen. This is all about the message, so please spread the word!”
Check out the new video at the link below where Schaffer discusses the concept behind the song "Jekyll Island", and the book it’s based on - a core principle to the topics covered in the band's lyrical content. Also, catch a special interview with Schaffer and G. Edward Griffin (author of The Creature From Jekyll Island).
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.
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 experience SONS OF LIBERTY on stage for their first-ever live performances.
VIP packages via www.icedearth.com are still available on a very limited basis. Regular tickets sales via Ticketmaster and all other outlets have begun and will be subject to local service fees.
