DragonForce Unleash Video for ‘The Game’

The new DragonForce album ‘Maximum Overload’ will be released on Aug. 19, and the band has just unveiled the video for the new single ‘The Game’ (watch above). The track features the group’s trademark melodies and guitar wizardry along with a guest appearance from Matt Heafy of Trivium.

‘Maximum Overload’ is DragonForce’s sixth studio album, and the second with vocalist Marc Hudson. In addition to guest spots from Heafy, it includes the band’s first-ever cover song, ‘Ring of Fire,’ originally recorded by Johnny Cash.

Guitarist Herman Li says, “The album title and album cover artwork is inspired by the constant bombardment of information we are subjected to during our daily lives. We were in an airport departure lounge surrounded by TV screens, flight information screens and advertising screens.”

Li continues, “We then looked around and no one was saying a word, they were all looking at more screens on tablets, laptops and mobile phones, there’s no escaping it, it’s complete information overload!”

The band’s drummer Dave Mackintosh recently exited, replaced by former Braindamage and Kill Ritual drummer Gee Anzalone. He’ll make his live debut with the band when DragonForce kick off a U.K. tour Sept. 17. See the dates here.

‘Maximum Overload’ will be available in numerous configurations, including CD, digital, special edition digital, vinyl and special edition CD with 5 bonus tracks and a DVD. Pre-orders are available here.
