Known as the fastest band in the world, Grammy-nominated extreme power metal band DragonForce unleashed their 8th full-length, “Extreme Power Metal”, worldwide. In support of this release, the band will head out on the road next month in Europe, before touring the USA with Unleash the Archers and Visions of Atlantis. Both of these treks will see Alicia Vigil (Vigil of War) handling bass and backing vocals for DragonForce.

Alicia Vigil comments: “So beyond stoked that DragonForce chose me to be a part of this! I can’t wait to travel the world and play these new cities with them and be a part of their legacy!”

DragonForce guitarist Herman Li adds: “Alicia was recommended to me by a number of musician friends in LA. She impressed me with her playing, her professionalism, and her ability to learn the DragonForce songs really quickly! I’m excited to have her playing on this tour and I think the fans will really like what she brings to the show.”

DragonForce will be streaming their world tour live on twitch.tv/hermanli. Livestreams will include performances, backstage and special guest appearances. See below for all upcoming dates!

Last August, DRAGONFORCE parted ways with longtime bassist Frédéric Leclercq. Playing bass for the group at its recent shows was Damien Rainaud, who produced “Extreme Power Metal”.

DRAGONFORCE‘s platinum-selling single “Through The Fire And Flames” brought the London-based Grammy-nominated extreme power metal group international acclaim and was featured as the most challenging song on “Guitar Hero III”. Last March, the “Through The Fire And Flames” music video reached a new milestone: it surpassed one hundred million views on YouTubeDRAGONFORCE‘s first music video to do so.

“Through The Fire And Flames” is the lead-off track from 2006’s “Inhuman Rampage” album, which was officially certified gold in July 2017 by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) for sales in excess of half a million copies.
