DRAGONFORCE's eighth LP was recorded with producer Damien Rainaud (ONCE HUMAN) and is tentatively due out before the end of the year via Metal Blade Records in the USA.

DRAGONFORCE guitarist Herman Li previously said: "We're really excited to be recording again after finishing one of our biggest tour cycles ever. The new album will have a lot of surprises that both old and new fans will really enjoy."

DRAGONFORCE recently filmed a music video for an as-yet-undisclosed first single from its new album in Belgrade, Serbia. The clip was directed by Ivan Colic and produced by Stanimir Lukic and iCODE Team, who previously worked with DRAGONFORCE on the "Ashes Of The Dawn" video.

DRAGONFORCE's latest album, "Reaching Into Infinity", was released in May 2017 via earMUSIC on CD, LP and a special-edition CD and DVD. The follow-up to 2014's "Maximum Overload" marked DRAGONFORCE's third full-length studio release with singer Marc Hudson, who joined the group in 2011 following the departure of original frontman ZP Theart.
