Dragonforce (opens in new tab) have announced plans to tour across North America, the UK and Europe later this year and into 2020.

The UK outfit have a handful of summer festival appearances on the horizon, but will return to the road throughout October, when they’ll play shows across the US and Canada with Dance With The Dead and Starkill.

Then, in November, the band will turn their attention to the UK, where they’ve lined up 11 dates with special guests McRocklin & Hutch.

Those will be Dragonforce’s last shows in 2019, but they’ll head back out on tour across mainland Europe in February 2020.

The band have scheduled the shows in support of their upcoming studio album, which is expected to launch before the end of the year.

The as-yet-untitled record will be the follow-up to 2017’s Reaching Into Infinity (opens in new tab).
