DRAGONFORCE released their latest album “Maximum Overload” to critical acclaim this past August on Metal Blade Records. Produced by Jens Bogren at Fascination Studios in Örebro and Varberg, Sweden, the new opus will be the band’s first ever album involving an outside producer, having historically opted to record themselves in association with Karl Groom.
In support of the album DRAGONFORCE has announced they will be returning to North America in 2015 on tour with Kamelot. The tour begins April 27th in Baltimore, MD and wraps up May 23rd in Lake Buena Vista (Orlando), FL. Tickets are on sale now for all dates at http://www.enterthevault.com.
Guitarist Herman Li on the tour:
“It’s always a problem where to start a World Tour and as we started the last touring cycle in North America we started this one in the UK, but there was another factor, we wanted to go out touring in North America with a superb band, so when the call came from Kamelot for us to join them on their tour we didn’t hesitate! This will be a fantastic tour and a fantastic evening for the fans……..see you all there!!!!”

New Album “Maximum Overload” Out Now on Metal Blade Records
It’s a solid slab of power metal. If you were looking for a time to get back into DragonForce, this may be it.
Frontman Marc Hudson’s awe-inspiring voice is given plenty of room to soar, while the music incorporates riffs and tones from thrash and death metal, giving the songs a heaviness never present before.

They have genuine fist pumping anthems
