The mighty DRAGONFORCE are set for a UK tour this September. The tour will follow the release of their as-yet-untitled new album, which is pencilled to hit stores on 25th August.
The band are currently hard at work completing the new album, before they heading Stateside in late June for the start of the inaugural Rockstar Mayhem touring festival. The package kicks off in early July and is headlined by labelmates, SLIPKNOT and sees Dragonforce bagging a main stage slot. Meanwhile, DRAGONFORCE’s last album, ‘Inhuman Rampage’ is still romping out of stores on both sides of the pond, thanks in part to the inclusion of lead track, ‘Through The Fire And Flames’ as the ‘advanced’ level on the top-selling Guitar Hero III computer game.
Elsewhere in Dragonforce news, guitarists Herman Li and Sam Totman recently launched their new signature guitars at the NAMM show in LA. You can check out the details over at IBANEZ.COM. Also look out for the exclusive interview with Sam.
