According to bravewords.com and the Dragonforce website, lead singer ZP Theart is parting ways with the band due to “insurmountable differences of musical opinion”. Theart had been with the band since its formation in 1999. In this 2006 interview on metal-experience.com guitarist Sam Totman describes how Theart was brought into the band:
… we were looking for someone that could sing normally, and we found ZP through an advertisement. He played in a black metal band before that. Zippy was the only one that we could find so we had to keep him haha! He was alright anyway so it worked out quite good in the end.
The band has started a worldwide search for a new vocalist, and interested applicants can apply here.
