DRAGONFORCE is currently hard at work completing the new CD before heading Stateside in late June for the start of the inaugural Rockstar Energy Mayhem touring festival. The package kicks off in early July and is headlined by Roadrunner labelmates SLIPKNOT.
DRAGONFORCE's last album, "Inhuman Rampage", is still romping out of stores on both sides of the pond, thanks in part to the inclusion of lead track "Through The Fire And Flames" as the "advanced" level on the top-selling Guitar Hero III computer game.
Elsewhere in DRAGONFORCE news, guitarists Herman Li and Sam Totman recently launched their new signature guitars at the NAMM show in Anaheim, California. You can check out the details over at www.ibanez.com. Also look out for the exclusive interview with Sam.
