Nach den Ereignissen am US-Kapitol Anfang Januar, an denen Jon Schaffer, Gründer von ICED EARTH, beteiligt war, ziehen nun Stu Block (Sänger) und Luke Appleton (Bassist) Konsequenzen und verlassen die Band mit sofortiger Wirkung.

Hier das Statement von Stu:

“ Hey All, Well, there are times and events when you have to take stock and re evaluate your life, work, and trajectory for the future. That being said I have informed Jon and his current management that I must announce my resignation from Iced Earth with immediate effect. Before I made any personal decision I needed the last few weeks to process the situation as well as respect others in our camp processing the situation. I thank you all very much for respecting this. It’s the best decision in many ways for my personal/ professional growth going forward. Time to move on, heal and prosper.Much love and respect to you all. Don’t fret! Stay tuned for some exciting things to come! Time to embark upon a new chapter. Be good to each other. Stu Block ✌️
