‘Seasons’ is the second single from the latest and 5th DragonForce studio album The Power Within. Written by bassist Frederic Leclercq the song is accompanied by a montage video filmed during a series of shows played to introduce new singer Marc Hudson to the bands fan base prior to the commencement of The Power Within World Tour, including playing the 02 Arena in London with Iron Maiden and the Knockout Festival in Germany.
The World Tour continues to roll out with a Latin American Tour taking in Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Ecuador, Columbia and Mexico.

We are sorry to announce that the forthcoming DragonForce show in Venezuela has been cancelled.
“Liberation Music Company is sorry to announce that, due to several contract breaches by Aleindigo Booking Agency, from Caracas, Venezuela, we are forced to cancel the TRIVIUM / DRAGONFORCE show in Maracay, Venezuela, on September 16th. Both TRIVIUM and DRAGONFORCE did everything that they could possibly do to play in Venezuela and to honor their fans. However, Aleindigo Booking Agency did not provide the bands with work visas before they left for the tour, did not send us the deposits for the flight expenses or for the fees for both bands. As the tour organizers, Liberation MC paid both bands entirely for all of the shows on the whole tour, including the show in Venezuela. We, however, cannot take two important international acts to Venezuela without proper visas or without being paid by the local promoter, Manuel Diaz, from Aleindigo Booking Agency. All of the fans that bought tickets to the show should contact ticketmundo to be refunded.”
The shows with both TRIVIUM / DRAGONFORCE in Chile, Ecuador, Colombia and Mexico are 100% confirmed and will not be affected.
