Feel The Force: lords of shred Dragonforce announce UK tour


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,

computer game.
