Iced Earth are giving fans another reason to catch them on the road this summer with Volbeat, Hellyeah, and The Sixxis.

The band is releasing a limited tour edition of their latest album, Dystopia. Currently available only at the merchandise stands on the tour, the 2-disc Dystopia Tour Edition contains the original full-length album, as well as b-side covers of Iron Maiden "The Trooper" and Black Sabbath "Mob Rules," as well as the classic 17-minute Iced Earth track "Dante's Inferno" re-recorded with vocalist Stu Block.

The bonus disc also contains both music videos from Dystopia - the title track and "Anthem" - as well as a 'Making of Dystopia' studio interview with the band, and exclusive cell phone skins and desktop backgrounds.

In regards to this upcoming tour, Jon Schaffer (rhythm, lead and acoustic guitars/backing vocals) comments: "I'm completely stoked, Volbeat is one of my all-time favorite bands, and Michael and the boys are great people. There is a lot of mutual respect and admiration, and I think we are in for a hell of a good time! This will be a package that won't soon be forgotten, I'm sure of that."
