Seinen Live-Einstand gibt Anzalone auf der "Maximum Overload"-UK-Tour, die am 17. September startet. Sein Vorgänger Dave Mackintosh verlässt DRAGONFORCE, um sich weiter in Richtung Prog zu orientieren. Er wünscht DRAGONFORCE und seinem Nachfolger alles Gute:
“After much thought I have parted ways with the boys in DragonForce to pursue my first love of progressive rock, I wish the lads all the luck in the world and look forward to the release of Maximum Overload as I truly believe this is the most fantastic DF album that I and the boys have recorded to date! Many thanks to all the fans who have supported me in this last decade of massive tours, countless shows and all the albums, I couldn’t have done it without you. I will continue to tour and play with some of the greatest names in Prog Rock, and hope to see some familiar faces on the road! In the meantime, stay metal, watch out for the new Dave Mackintosh website which will be launched within the next 4 weeks as well as some great new videos I will be producing with my gear sponsors.
DRAGONFORCE-Gitarrist Herman Li zu dem Wechsel:
"We have been through a lot with Dave and want to thank him for everything he has contributed to DragonForce, both as a friend and musician and we would all like to wish him well with his new project!”
Mackintoshs letzte Arbeit mit DRAGONFORCE ist das Album "Maximum Overload", das am 15. August erscheint.
