This is the first time Fury UK have released a DVD. Not satisfied with just a few live clips & some backstage footage, with "Death By Lightning" there’s over 2 hours of material combining these elements....
3 part video diary covering the 2011 European Tour with Iced Earth including "official live bootlegs" of "Athena" from the Athens, Greece shows & "The Remainder" from Pratteln, Switzerland.
Live footage from earlier UK & European shows.
Behind-the-scenes / on-the-road footage.
Brand new music videos for the songs "Alien Skies" & "Death By Lightning".
The original "A Way Of Life" album promo featuring "Nemesis".
Brand new acoustic recordings of 3 Fury UK songs.
Says frontman Chris Appleton “We’re really happy to have finally got down to putting a DVD together, having looked at the possibility a few times in the past. It seems the right time to do this now & the amount of footage we have makes it possible for us to do something special which is why this DVD is packed full of material. The footage includes studio tracks, official bootleg tracks, sidestage close-ups, backstage & on the road antics…. the good, the bad & the ugly! This tour is just the beginning of our 2012 shows too. Through the year we’re expecting to return to many of the countries we visited in 2011 as part of the tour with Iced Earth so keep an eye open for more to come”.
Fury UK are also writing songs ready for their 4th album pencilled in for a September/October release.
Before the "Death By Lightning" tour begins Fury UK will be warming things up by playing the fantastic Hammerfest at Prestatyn, North Wales on 16th March. This is the band's 2nd appearance at Hammerfest, originally performing in 2010. The festival this year is headlined by Anthrax & Skindred.
