Fresh off their massively successful stint on the main stage of this summer's inaugural Rockstar Energy Mayhem Fest, DragonForce aren't content to take a break. The band will hit the U.S. for a six-week headline tour that hits major markets, supporting their new album, "Ultra Beatdown," which lands on retail shelves today, August 26.

DragonForce is a touring machine, but their last headline tour occured two years ago in September 2006. It was a sold-out spectacle that cemented the band's reputation as a live powerhouse. Turisas will serve as main support for the tour, which kicks off on November 1 and runs through December 19.

You don't have to be sorry about that man, I mean we are the jackasses regarding this band, not you. I mostly b**** them out of pure fun, I don't like them at all but let's face it, they have success because they offer something that a LOT of people like. and I am sure they deserve it but it's just called venting.
