Dragonforce release new studio video for Midnight Madness


Dragonforce have released a studio video for their track Midnight Madness.

The song has been lifted from the band’s latest album Reaching Into Infinity, which arrived in May this year via earMUSIC.

Guitarist Herman Li says: “Many fans have asked us over the years what’s it like working in the studio on an album. The music video from the latest song to be released from the Reaching Into Infinity album Midnight Madness has the perfect vibe to take the fans behind the scenes and see what we get up to!”

Speaking previously about the new album, bassist Frederic Leclercq said: “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.”

The band have released the video to coincide with the start of their UK and European tour which kicks off in Glasgow on October 4. Find full details below.
