Dragonforce announced a new slate of live dates this week.

The band announced on Monday, the dates for the upcoming North American leg of its tour.  The tour is in support of its most recent album Extreme Power Metal (2019).

The two week run is scheduled to launch March 5 in Phoenix, AZ and to run through March 21 in Brooklyn, NY, and will feature in performances in other cities, such as St. Louis, MO; Detroit, MI and Salt Lake City, UT.  Unleash the Archers and Visions of Atlantis will join Dragonforce for the tour.

Also joining the band for the run will be bassist Alicia Vigil (Vigil of War). Vigil’s addition to the band is just the latest following the departure of bassist Frederic Leclercq from the band in August. Damien Rainaud, who produced Extreme Power Metal handled bass duties for the band at its most recent shows, following the parting of ways between Leclercq and the band.

Vigil said in a recent interview, she was looking forward to joining Dragonforce for its upcoming run.

“So beyond stoked that Dragonforce chose me to be a part of this!,” she said.  “I can’t wait to travel the world and play these new cities with them, and be a part of their legacy!”

Following its upcoming North American run, Dragonforce will head back overseas for another European run starting March 24 in Odense, Denmark.  The tour is scheduled to run through July 18 in Balingen, Germany. Hammerfall is scheduled to join Dragonforce for select dates on the tour.

Vigil will also join Dragonforce for its European run.  Dragonforce founding member and guitarist Herman Li talked recently about her addition to the band for its upcoming run.

“Alicia was recommended to me by a number of musician friends in L.A.,” he said.  “She impressed me with her playing, her professionalism and her ability to learn the Dragonforce songs really quickly!  I’m excited to have her playing on this tour, and I think the fans will really like what she brings to the show.”

Dragonforce will stream its world tour live through Li’s official Twitch channel.  The band’s upcoming North American and European dates are noted below.
