Iced Earth's Jon Schaffer Launches Sons of Liberty
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.
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.
He setup the resource website www.sons-of-liberty.net as a think-tank containing lots of interesting web-links, book and movie recommendations, and much more.
Schaffer, in turn, has reverently named his new project after a secret organization comprised of notable United States' patriots that formed in 1765. These patriots worked fervently to expose and resist the tyranny that the colonists were subjected to, which ultimately led to the American Revolution.
