Heaven Shall Burn: confirm European & US headliner tours!
Heaven Shall Burn:  confirm European & US headliner tours!
Right on time with the release of their highly anticipated new opus „Iconoclast“, HEAVEN SHALL BURN have just confirmed the dates of their European headliner tour, guitarist Maik Weichert comments as follows:

„Along with our release shows in Germany, we’re glad to announce our headliner tour running also through several European countries. Besides playing our new songs to the European fans we will use this opportunity to cover some white spots in our home country. With this tour we try to focus on some countries that we haven’t visited for quite a while, but that have been very supportive to us in the past.

Furthermore, we’re thrilled to finally celebrate the “birthday” of our new record and despite the fact that we already know how our new baby looks and sounds, it is always a special moment to finally see it hit the stores. We hope you will love the new HSB-family member as much as we do!

If you plan on getting it make sure to grab a copy of the limited edition of HEAVEN SHALL BURN’s “Iconoclast”, because we do not have any extra stock available. It is officially sold out from the Century Media Records warehouse. In Germany it is even a little more dramatic: There is no stock left in the warehouse of our German distributor. All available copies are already in the shops, so no shop will have the chance to restock “Iconoclast”. Needless to say that this special item will not be reprinted!

“Iconoclast” will be released in Europe on the following dates:

UK / FRANCE / GREECE / DENMARK / NORWAY / REST OF EUROPE: Monday, January 28, 2008.
SPAIN / PORTUGAL: Tuesday, January 29, 2008.
SWEDEN / FINLAND / HUNGARY: Wednesday, January 30, 2008.

It is available as CD, LP (incl. the bare CD as bonus) as well as limited edition Mediabook CD plus DVD (incl. their entire, 45min. Wacken Open Air 2007 show, “Counterweight” video clip and photo gallery). Furthermore, the CD also includes an animated “Iconoclast” synopsis allowing you additional insights into the thought provoking concept of the new album. Visit the brand-new “Iconoclast” microsite for more info & a clip from the aforementioned Wacken show: http://ecard.centurymedia.com/heavenshallburn_iconoclast

Also, you can find the log in information in the booklet of “Iconoclast” to have access to the log in section of the microsite where you will be able to download exclusive wallpapers and a screensaver.

German press is also excited about “Iconoclast”:
