Dragonforce have announced a 10-date UK tour which will take place later this year.

The band have lined up the shows in support of their upcoming seventh studio album Reaching Into Infinity, which will launch on May 19 via earMUSIC on CD, LP and a special edition CD/DVD package.

Guitarist Herman Li says: “The UK is still one of Dragonforce’s favourite places to tour, and we can’t wait to bring the epic-ness back home.”

In addition, the band have streamed their track Judgement Day, which can be listened to below.

Bassist Frederic Leclercq previously said of the album: “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 Hudson’s vocals. I think people are going to be surprised at his brutality.”

Leclercq added: “The title of the album explains pretty much what we are trying to do with our music. 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.”
