CD/DVD Releases: Queensryche - New Album Cover Art Revealed

Posted on Thursday, April 14 @ 22:00:00 UTC by nightowl

Seattle progressive rockers Queensr├┐che will release their twelfth studio album, Dedicated To Chaos, on June 28 in North America via Loud & Proud Records, a Roadrunner Records imprint focusing on established artists. The band is currently planning a tour in support of the new opus, which was recorded in the group's hometown and produced by Kelly Gray.

When asked about the overall musical direction of the material on Dedicated To Chaos, Tate recently told Paul Anthony of U.K.'s Rock Radio, "It's kind of like an Empire record set 25 years in the future. [Laughs] It's a very listenable record, I think. I think people will find it interesting to listen to on headphones, especially. There's a lot going on with it. And there's definitely an emphasis on the rhythm section. Eddie [Jackson, bass] and Scott [Rockenfield, drums] have written a lot of the songs on this particular record, so it really showcases what they do, which is something very special."

He added, "This record is definitely a boundary-pusher in a lot of respects, I think. It's always difficult to describe music; it's better to experience it. So I'll let people hear it and make up their own minds."

Incidentally, Queensryche are one of several bands booked for the ShipRocked cruise coming November 14-19, sailing to/from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida with stops in Mexico. More info at GetShipRocked.com.
