After the release of the "Twilight Orchestra: Legacy Of The Dark Lands" album, Hansi Kürsch, frontman of German power metal icons Blind Guardian, gave an interview to Dead Rhetoric and said some very interesting things about the plans of Blind Guadrian and Demons & Wizards for 2020. So, when he was asked what he has planned for 2020, he answered:
"There's a lot of production for Blind Guardian, that's for sure. I would think this will occupy most of the year. My ideal schedule looks like we will end up handing in the next Blind Guardian album to the record label in September or October at the very latest. What I have on the agenda for 2020 is the release of the next Demons & Wizards album. We did some touring over the summer and it was quite an impressive experience to bring Demons & Wizards to the stage in a real touring format for the first time and see how the people reacted. It was a very pleasant surprise. At the same time, when we had some off time, we finished the successor for 'Touched By The Crimson King', and it's a very intense metal album. It will be released in the beginning of next year. Jon [Schaffer, also of Iced Earth] and I discussed if that there is a chance for us to free up a few spots to add Demons & Wizards shows, but that is up in the air. The album will be released in the first half of 2020 and this is something that people can really look out for. It's a very vivid, entertaining and classy album".
