Queensryche's biggest hit, like a lot of bands of the era, was a ballad. 'Silent Lucidity' is a gentle, acoustic driven song with orchestration to powerfully back the mood. Hey, even hardened metalheads can be softies at times! Here we have the song being played wonderfully by a young boy.
As we are well aware, there are currently two version of Queensryche performing and releasing studio albums. This can be confusing for fans who may not keep up with music news and are more casual fans than devoted followers. Estranged singer Geoff Tate, who was fired from Queensryche by three of the founding members, recently sat down with Smashing Interviews Magazine to talk about his side of Queensryche.
It looks like the legal battle for the band name Queensryche will rage on a bit longer. According to new court records, a continuance was granted, giving ousted frontman Geoff Tate and his wife Susan, who once managed the band, until January 27, 2014 to iron out the details of their case.
Queensryche has experienced somewhat of a rebirth as of late. Well … technically two rebirths, but we're talking about the Todd La Torre-fronted incarnation of the iconic heavy metal band. Geoff Tate's Queensryche? Not so much.
After their self-titled album landed in the top 25 of the Billboard 200 last week, the Todd La Torre-fronted version of Queensryche have just unleashed the video for the single 'Fallout' (watch above).
The Todd La Torre-led version of Queensryche got their turn to shine Wednesday night in Los Angeles as the group packed into the sweaty Viper Room to both show off their new self-titled album and to play a performance for those in attendance.
Former Judas Priest guitarist K.K. Downing recently took to his official blog to write about his personal contribution to Geoff Tate's Queensryche's new album, 'Frequency Unknown.' Much criticism and controversy is currently whirling around the head of Tate, and Downing addresses his reasoning for the new collaboration, along with a funny story about nearly being killed by a couch.
After last month's announcement that Queensryche had signed with Century Media Records, the version of the band that's now fronted by Todd La Torre has revealed the album will be self-titled and is set for a June 25 release.
