(New York, NY): European power metal dynamos DragonForce have announced plans to return to North America for a spring tour. This outing marks the band’s first full 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 gigs last fall. 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.

 

Pre-orders for The Power Within are available as of today. You can pre-order The Power Within bundle and receive an exclusive autographed poster and a download of the album the day before it’s available in stores.
