DRAGONFORCE Begins Recording Eighth Studio Album

DRAGONFORCE recently entered the studio with producer Damien Rainaud (FEAR FACTORY, ONCE HUMAN) to begin recording its eighth album, due out 2019 via Metal Blade Records in the USA. Fans can watch livestreams of the studio sessions now on Twitch at twitch.tv/hermanli. Plus, all followers of the Twitch page will have a chance to win Herman Li's personal signature guitar once he reaches 10,000 Twitch followers.

Li comments: "We're really excited to be recording again after finishing one of our biggest tour cycles ever. We'll be streaming our recording live on Twitch, and fans can participate in the process by letting us know what they think of our solos! The new album will have a lot of surprises that both old and new fans will really enjoy."

On October 13-18, 2019, DRAGONFORCE will join Megacruise, which departs from Los Angeles, California and boasts a lineup of MEGADETH, ANTHRAX, TESTAMENT, CORROSION OF CONFORMITY, DEVILDRIVER, DORO, ARMORED SAINT, JOHN 5, METAL CHURCH, and many more artists.

Adds Li: "We're also especially excited to kick off our next tour cycle on the Megacruise. You know if you're seeing DRAGONFORCE on a cruise, it's going to be crazy, and we can't wait for everyone to see what we're planning. It will definitely be something fans have never seen before."

DRAGONFORCE's fifth album, "The Power Within", which was originally released in early 2012, has been completely remastered and remixed and reissued under the title "Re-Powered Within" in Europe via earMUSIC and in Japan through JVC Victor.

DRAGONFORCE's latest album, "Reaching Into Infinity", was released in May 2017 via earMUSIC on CD, LP and a special-edition CD and DVD. The follow-up to 2014's "Maximum Overload" marked DRAGONFORCE's third full-length studio release with singer Marc Hudson, who joined the group in 2011 following the departure of original frontman ZP Theart (now in SKID ROW).
