9th February 2017

The brand new studio album from Dragonforce will be called 'Reaching Into Infinity' and will be released via EarMUSIC on May 19th on CD, LP and a special edition CD and DVD.

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

Bass player Frédéric Leclercq, who also handled the majority of songwriting on this album, told us:

"We were flying out, playing a festival, then back into the studio, then back out again. 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."

It's Dragonforce's seventh studio album and they have opened up their sound like never before, capturing the fierce, forlorn and fun with both menace and melody. Fred continues:

"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. 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 Dragonforce album to feature Gee Anzalone and the Italian drummer has laid down an insanely impressive performance to provide the perfect backbone to the bands trademark crazy-fast solos, courtesy of guitarists Herman Li and Sam Totman.

The band will give fans their first taste of the new songs in a live setting at a very exclusive one-off show at Our Black Heart in Camden Town, London on April 12th. Says guitarist Sam Totman:

"This is going to be insane! We always like to kick things off with some intimate shows and this will be the smallest London show we've done since doing three consecutive weeks at The Barfly back in 2005. It's going to be a wild sweaty party!"

Tickets go on sale Friday 10th February.

"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."

MONSTERS OF ROCK IN FULL FLIGHT SURE TO BECOME FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

monsters of rock

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is stricylt limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
