Watch: DRAGONFORCE's HERMAN LI Throws Guitar To Crew Member During A Show, Crew Member Doesn't Catch It

All set to Sarah McLachlan, of course.

Chances are that not every show is going to go perfectly from start to finish. Unfortunately those chances do not exclude Dragonforce guitarist Herman Li and his orange Ibanez.

During a show in Austin TX, Li tossed his Ibanez to a crew member in the wings who didn't quite make the catch. The result is what looks like a pretty damaged body and a very sad Li… or maybe that's just Sarah McLachlan's "Angel" coloring my opinion. And it's not like Li is buying a new guitar with what little money he got paid from Guitar Hero.

Dragonforce is currently working on the follow-up to their 2019 album Extreme Power Metal. Li said in a recent interview that the band has a lot of music written for the album but hasn't recorded any yet. Li also notes Dragonforce is looking for a new label.

"We've got a lot of music written. We haven't recorded it. So we're actually gonna look for a new record deal at the moment to do it," said Li.

"We don't do music for money, so we only release stuff when we want to and it sounds good. We're not on a hamster wheel: 'You've gotta release an album every two years.' It's hard to be creative when you just force yourself to make good music, and every artist knows.

"We don't just make music now; we're content creators at the same time. We have a pause on YouTube at the moment, but we were posting every week before that. So if you want something — an art form; I don't know if you can call YouTube 'art form' — if you want something from us, there's always something coming from Dragonforce, even if it's not new music."

Dragonforce's new album will be their first with new bassist Alicia Vigil. Vigil replaced longtime bassist Frédéric Leclercq, who left Dragonforce in 2019 to join Kreator.
