    With their forthcoming 5th studio album ‘The Power Within’ set for release on April 15th, DRAGONFORCE have announced the UK & Ireland leg of the POWER WITHIN WORLD TOUR.

    Always renown for their massive world tours, the Power Within World Tour is set to take in a minimum of 40 countries around the globe over a period of 18 months. The UK and Ireland leg kicks off on 25th September 2012 in Dublin’s Academy venue, working its way the length and breadth of the country over eleven shows, ending in Portsmouth Pyramids on Sunday 7th October.

    The tour will be highly anticipated, after a stunning show at London’s 100 Club venue last month saw new vocalist Marc Hudson prove beyond any doubt that he is the perfect mouthpiece for an invigorated and hungry DRAGONFORCE.

    “To say I’m looking forward to my first ever UK & Ireland tour is an understatement!  I’ve been on a steep learning curve since joining the band and the fantastic DF fans have been very supportive, now I’ll get to meet more of them. We have some superb bands on the bill and will have a great stage show so this tour will be a lot of fun and I’m really excited to be part of it!” 

    Always ones to deliver a killer bill when embarking on a headline run, DRAGONFORCE bring with them special guests in the form of Scottish Pirate metallers ALESTORM, Support from London Industrial Metal Mob THE DEFILED, with former GU Medicine men CAVORTS opening proceedings.

    European power metal dynamos DragonForce have announced plans to return to North America for a spring tour. This outing marks the band’s first trek with brand new singer Marc Hudson, who also makes his recorded debut on The Power Within. The album lands at retail on April 17.

    Hudson premiered his voice at a series of intimate North American shows last October. The performances were met with much praise and approval from the band’s diehard fanbase. Now the vocalist will be able to showcase his pipes to other parts of the country and beyond, where a similar reaction is expected for this talented up ‘n comer with undeniable chops.

    The tour kicks off April 21 at the annual New England Metal and Hardcore Fest in Worcester, Massachusetts and makes several stops on the East Coast before winding through Canada and into the Midwest before wrapping out west on May 11 in Anaheim, California. L.A.-based metal warriors Holy Grail, and Huntress, a five-piece metal band lead by vocalist Jill Janus, who delivers an unparalleled four-octave range thanks to her opera background, will provide support on this run.
