The international metal superstars from DragonForce have revealed details for their forthcoming studio album. "Reaching Into Infinity" will be released in the USA via Metal Blade Records on May 19th, 2017.

Recording the bulk of the album at Fascination Street Studios, Sweden, with producer Jens Bogren, the band also laid down tracks while touring for the "Killer Elite" compilation release, utilizing Lamerluser Studios, (London, UK), Dark Lane Studios (Witney, UK), as well as the band's own Evil1 Studios in Charleville-Mezieres, France and Shredforce One Studios (CA, USA).

"We were flying out, playing a festival, then back into the studio, then back out again," explains bass player Frederic Leclercq, who also handled the majority of songwriting on this album. "It was very intense and very tiring. I obviously played bass but also a lot of rhythm guitar, electric and acoustic, and lost my temper a few times - I think we all did at some point, because we wanted to deliver nothing but the best."

"I think we have proven that playing fast was something we were good at, so this time I wanted to bring even more diversity into our music," Fred continues. "It's great to challenge ourselves instead of staying in a comfort zone, and I really wanted to experiment with Marc's vocals. I think people are going to be surprised at his brutality!"

This will also be the first album to feature Italian drummer Gee Anzalone. The band will give USA fans a first taste of the new songs at Chicago Open Air on July 15th at Toyota Park in Bridgeview, IL.

"The title of the album explains pretty much what we are trying to do with our music," Fred concludes. "Today's world is really crazy - there is fear of the future, uncertainty. But the power of music is infinite, and it can give strength and hope to people."
