A Finnish Jon Schaffer interview tells there's a new Demons & Wizards album on the way! http://www.inferno.fi/uutiset/jon-schafferin-ja-hansi-kurschin-yhteisprojekti-demons-wizards-palaa-lue-schafferin-kommentit-tulevasta-albumista/ Says Schaffer, "We finished our new studio complex after the last Iced Earth album and it will affect everything we do in the future in a positive way. - - We've finished the new Iced Earth album and next we will truly start the work on the 3rd D&W album. - - . Hansi has heard the first songs and lyrics are taking their shape. - - D&W is something I really don't want to leave behind. A last year FB photo about me and Hansi is my most popular post ever! This tells me the fans want more D&W. - - The album will be ready in this year. Our schedules now fit together with Hansi's because of our new studio. Therefore I dare to promise that the new album will be released in 2018."
New album agreed! I interviewed Hansi 4 years ago and I pinned him down on the question. Does not show in the printed interview, but it was a phoner and I had to ask twice. He said we could expect it, but not when! http://www.metal-rules.com/metalnews/2010/11/05/blind-guardian-hansi-kursch/
