DragonForce Sign With Napalm Records, Announce Fall North American Tour


Platinum-certified power metal outfit DragonForce have found a new label home with Napalm Records. The move shouldn’t be too surprising given that the band’s frontman Marc Hudson also signed with the aforementioned label for his upcoming solo debut album, “Starbound Stories“, due out August 25th.

Word of DragonForce‘s new signing is accompanied by the announcement of a fall North American headlining tour. Amaranthe, NanowaR Of Steel and Edge Of Paradise will be joining them on that trek, which is due to kick off on October 20th.

DragonForce themselves are planning a refreshed setlist for the trek and have also been working on a new album, which a press release describes as “their most ambitious.” New music from that outing will be available online prior to the tour’s launch.

Guitarist Herman Li commented of aligning with Napalm Records:

“We are absolutely thrilled to join forces with Napalm Records, a true powerhouse in the metal music universe! This marks the beginning of an epic new chapter for DragonForce, and we’re eager to see what our collaboration will bring to our fans around the world!”
