European power metal dynamos DragonForce have announced their plans to return to North America for their latest full blown tour. This trek marks the band's first tour with brand new singer Marc Hudson, who makes his recorded debut on The Power Within, which lands at retail on April 17.
Hudson premiered his voice at a series of intimates shows in North America last October. These gigs with much praise and approval from the band's diehard fanbase. Now the vocalist will be able to bring his pipes to the entire country and beyond, where a similar reaction is expected for this young and talented up 'n comer with undeniable chops.
The tour kicks off April 21 at the annual New England Metal and Hardcore Fest and winds through Canada and the Midwest before wrapping out West on May 11 in Anaheim, California. Female-fronted hellions Huntress, a five-piece metal band from Highland Park, Calif. lead by vocalist Jill Janus, who delivers an unparalleled four-octave range, hailing from her background in opera, and L.A.-based metal warriors Holy Grail will provide support on this run.
