Dragonforce Announce New Album Title and Release Date

Dragonforce have announced Ultra Beatdown as the title of their forthcoming new album for Roadrunner Records, due in stores on August 26.

Ultra Beatdown promises to be an epic, sweeping, grand collection of infectious guitar anthems. Dragonforce's single from 2006's Inhuman Rampage, "Through the Fire and Flames," exploded on the public beyond the metal world thanks to its appearance on Guitar Hero III, the massively popular guitar simulator game. The single has been RIAA certified Gold in the U.S., with the album scanning over 300,000 copies (and counting) to date.

Ultra Beatdown Track Listing:

1. Heroes of Our Time

2. The Fire Still Burns

3. Reasons to Live

4. Scars of Yesterday

5. Heartbreak Armageddon

6. The Last Journey Home

7. Inside the Winter Storm

8. The Warrior Inside

Dragonforce will spend the summer as a main stage attraction on the inaugural Rockstar Energy Mayhem tour, which features labelmates/headliners Slipknot, as well as Disturbed, Machine Head, Mastodon, and Airbourne, among others.
