Schaffer / Barlow Project Releases New Video Silent Night, Watch Here
Schaffer/Barlow Project - featuring Iced Earth founder, songwriter, guitarist and producer Jon Schaffer, and former Iced Earth vocalist Matt Barlow - have released a lyric video for "Silent Night", from the upcoming Winter Nights album.
ICED EARTH founder, songwriter, guitarist and producer Jon Schaffer recently reunited with former ICED EARTH vocalist Matt Barlow to celebrate the holiday season as only they can. The duo returns as the SCHAFFER/BARLOW PROJECT and this time are putting their unique spin on five Christmas classics and two ICED EARTH songs. Blabbermouth
"Winter Nights" was born out of a long-standing desire between Schaffer and Barlow to work together again. The idea to work on holiday songs was interesting to both guys. The EP features their unique spin on five Christmas classics, including "Silent Night", "Little Drummer Boy" and "We Three Kings", the latter of which can be streamed below, as well as new interpretations of two ICED EARTH songs, "Watching Over Me" and "I Died For You".
"Winter Nights" is available in numerous configurations on Kickstarter and every CD purchase comes with a second bonus 5.1 Surround Sound mix of the EP. The artwork was created by Sun Khamunaki. The SCHAFFER/BARLOW PROJECT plan to release all versions of the EP in time for the holiday season barring any delays due to recent global events. Regardless of the global situation, backers of the campaign will receive their album in 24-bit digital audio as a download.
