QUEENSRŸCHE Has New Single Out ‘Behind The Walls’

QUEENSRŸCHE will release its sixteenth studio album, “Digital Noise Alliance”, on October 7 via Century Media. The record was once again helmed by Chris “Zeuss” Harris, who previously worked with QUEENSRŸCHE on 2015’s “Condition Hüman” and “The Verdict” LPs. The LP’s third single, “Behind The Walls”, can be streamed below.

[NEW] “Behind The Walls” Official Video: While the two songs previously released, “In Extremis” and “Forest” were exploring two contrasting facets of “Digital Noise Alliance”, “Behind The Walls” offers a deep dive into QUEENSRŸCHE’s trademark sound.

The band comments: “It is a story about those in crisis dealing with various forms of abuse. The protagonist is faced with the dichotomy of reconciling a lifetime of devout faith, while suffering immense abuse with no intervention.”

Queensrÿche announce new album, The Verdict, and 2019 US tour dates

“The most metal and the most progressive record we have made in a long time”

Queensrÿche‘s new album, The Verdict, released on March 1st, 2019 is heaviest album they’ve made in a long time via Century Media Records. The veteran band recorded the new tunes with Zeuss (Rob Zombie, Hatebreed, Iced Earth) at Uberbeatz in Lynwood, Washington, and Planet-Z in Wilbraham, Massachusetts.

The album is the band’s third to feature vocalist Todd La Torre, who took over the position after Geoff Tate was dismissed from the lineup. Following a legal battle over the name, the La Torre incarnation of the group won the rights to the Queensrÿche name, while Tate went on to tour under the name Operation: Mindcrime.

“I’m extremely proud of what we were able to accomplish on this record,” La Torre said in a statement. “The relentless dedication and hard work of everyone involved has been very rewarding. I am excited and looking forward to it no longer just belonging to us, but belonging to the world. We hope you all enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed making it!”

The Verdict is the most metal and the most progressive record we have made in a long time,” added guitarist Michael “Whip” Wilton. “I couldn’t possibly be more excited.

Queensrÿche – Operation: Mindcrime

1988 was the year of Operation: Mindcrime, Queensrÿche’s creative concept album that set the bar extremely high for metal bands of that time.

Mindcrime was an ambitious story of political and religious espionage and assassinations, all played with finesse and precision, topped with the incredible vocals of Geoff Tate.

Some of my favorite songs from the intense tale include The Needle Lies, Suite Sister Mary, Eyes Of A Stranger, Revolution Calling, and I Don’t Believe In Love. Years later, the band even did a sequel to this game changing saga.
