DEMONS & WIZARDS Release Remastered First Two Albums On All Digital Platforms

As of today, the two highly acclaimed albums, Demons & Wizards (2000) and Touched By The Crimson King (2005), are finally available again on all digital platforms.

Remastered by Zeuss (Iced Earth, Queensrÿche, Sanctuary), these two records will also be released as expanded deluxe editions on June 7. The expanded editions will feature liner notes by Hansi Kürsch & Jon Schaffer as well as bonus material and will be released as Limited Edition Digipak, Deluxe 2LP with Etching & LP-booklet as well as digital deluxe editions.

Streaming and pre-ordering options are available below:

- Demons & Wizards
- Touched By The Crimson King

Century Media Records recently announced the signing of  Demons & Wizards for a worldwide collaboration. Currently, the band is busy recording the highly anticipated yet-untitled third studio album, which is scheduled to be released in early 2020.

Hansi Kürsch comments: “It is a great pleasure and a big honor for me to finally become a full part of the Century Media family. Jon and I both feel that Century Media is the perfect match for our upcoming Demons & Wizards missions. And there will be plenty of them. Right at the moment we have not only finalized a re-boot of our first two albums, but are also working with full forces on the successor of “Touched by the Crimson King”. Good things are on its way. Expect nothing but the best and do not miss us on the road this summer, unless you want to risk another 20 years of waiting …”

Philipp Schulte (Century Media Records) adds: “To say that we are stoked to be finally working with Hansi and Jon on a new Demons & Wizards album would be an understatement. This is a very important signing to the label: A top-tier metal band and a great addition to the label’s roster. The fans have been patiently waiting for Demons & Wizards’ return. And now the time is near! We start our cooperation by re-releasing the band’s two classic albums, before they are conquering the festival stages all across Europe. And then, in the beginning of 2020, after 15 years of waiting, Demons & Wizards will finally return with a new studio album. It is time to hoist the sails for the storm to come. Welcome aboard!”
