DRAGONFORCE recruits YouTube musician and comedian STEVIE T to join upcoming US tour.

DRAGONFORCE, som straks er aktuell med albumet Extreme Power Metal i september, har annonsert at musiker og YouTube-stjerne Stevie T (Steve Terreberry) vil bli med på bandets konserter i USA i forbindelse med den kommende verdensturneen.

Det var gitarist Herman Li som inviterte Stevie T i sommer og spurte om han kunne spille triangelet, hvor Steve T responderte med en YouTube-video der han spiller til DRAGONFORCE-låten «Through The Fire And Flames«.

DragonForce guitarist Herman Li jokingly invited Stevie T to join the band this summer, asking him to play the triangle. Stevie T responded with a video on his YouTube channel, accepting Li’s offer and playing an extended triangle solo to DragonForce’s hit “Through the Fire and Flames”.

Herman Li kommenterer:

I was deeply moved when I saw Stevie T’s technical precision and finesse on the triangle and immediately invited him to join the tour. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see the greatest triangle player ever to grace this earth.” Stevie T will also step in to play bass for the band, after the departure of bassist Frédéric Leclercq, which was also announced on the band’s website on Wednesday. Leclercq’s last show with DragonForce will be this weekend at Elb-Riot in Hamburg, Germany. Li said, “We want to thank Fred for all the musical contributions and good times over the years. As sad as we are to lose him, we are excited that he is going to continue playing the music he loves. He will always be a friend and a member of the DragonForce family.
