DRAGONFORCE ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM REACHING INTO INFINITY TO BE RELEASED ON MAY 19, 2017

Posted on Feb. 13 2017

TORONTO, ON – February 13, 2017 – International metal superstars DragonForce have revealed details of their forthcoming studio album, Reaching Into Infinity, that will be released via Cadence Music on May 19th on CD, LP and a special edition CD+DVD.

Recording the bulk of the album at Fascination Street Studios in Sweden with producer Jens Bogren, the band also laid down tracks while touring their best of album, Killer Elite, utilizing Lamerluser Studios (London, UK) Dark Lane Studios (Witney, UK), as well as the bands own Evil1 Studios in Charleville-Mézières, France and Shredforce One Studios in California.

“We were flying out, playing a festival, then back into the studio, then back out again.” Explains bass player Frédéric Leclercq, who also handled the majority of songwriting on this album. “It was very intense and very tiring. I obviously played bass but also a lot of rhythm guitar, electric and acoustic, and lost my temper a few times – I think we all did at some point, because we wanted to deliver nothing but the best.”

For their seventh studio album, DragonForce have opened up their sound like never before, capturing the fierce, forlorn and fun with both menace and melody.

“I think we have proven that playing fast was something we were good at, so this time I wanted to bring even more diversity into our music.” Fred continues. “It’s great to challenge ourselves instead of staying in a comfort zone, and I really wanted to experiment with Marc’s vocals. I think people are going to be surprised at his brutality!”

This is the first album to feature Italian drummer Gee Anzalone, who has laid down an impressive performance to provide the perfect backbone to the DragonForce sound, which of course still boasts the bands trademark crazy-fast solos, courtesy of guitarists Herman Li and Sam Totman.

“The title of the album explains pretty much what we are trying to do with our music” Fred concludes. “Today’s world is really crazy – there is fear of the future, uncertainty. But the power of music is infinite, and it can give strength and hope to people.”

DragonForce will announce a North American tour. Stay tuned for details.
