European power metallers DRAGONFORCE have released a video for the track 'Cry Thunder', featured on their upcoming album, The Power Within. Watch the new clip below:
Dragonforce recently announced the UK and Ireland leg of the Power Within World Tour.
Always renown for their massive world tours, the Power Within World Tour is set to take in a minimum of 40 countries around the globe over a period of 18 months. The UK and Ireland leg kicks off on September 25th in Dublin’s Academy venue, working its way the length and breadth of the country over eleven shows, ending in Portsmouth Pyramids on Sunday, October 7th.
The tour will be highly anticipated, after a stunning show at London’s 100 Club venue last month saw new vocalist Marc Hudson prove beyond any doubt that he is the perfect mouthpiece for an invigorated and hungry Dragonforce.“To say I’m looking forward to my first ever UK & Ireland tour is an understatement! I’ve been on a steep learning curve since joining the band and the fantastic DF fans have been very supportive, now I’ll get to meet more of them. We have some superb bands on the bill and will have a great stage show so this tour will be a lot of fun and I’m really excited to be part of it!”
Always ones to deliver a killer bill when embarking on a headline run, Dragonforce bring with them special guests in the form of Scottish Pirate metallers ALESTORM, Support from London industrial metal mob THE DEFILED, with former GU Medicine men CAVORTS opening proceedings.

Dragonforce have announced plans to return to North America for a spring tour. This outing marks the band's first full trek with brand new singer Marc Hudson, who also makes his recorded debut on The Power Within.
Hudson premiered his voice at a series of intimate North American gigs last fall. The performances were met with much praise and approval from the band's diehard fanbase. Now the vocalist will be able to showcase his pipes to other parts of the country and beyond, where a similar reaction is expected for this talented up 'n comer with undeniable chops.
The tour kicks off April 21st at the annual New England Metal and Hardcore Fest in Worcester, Massachusetts and makes several stops on the East Coast before winding through Canada and into the Midwest before wrapping out west on May 11th in Anaheim, CA.
