Legendary Seattle rockers Queensrche are poised to regain their place as hard rock/heavy metal royalty in 2013. The band has just signed a new label deal with Century Media for the release of their latest studio album. The album is slated for release on June 25th and marks the debut album from the lineup comprised of Todd La Torre (Vocals), Michael Wilton (Guitars), Parker Lundgren (Guitars), Eddie Jackson (Bass) and Scott Rockenfield (Drums)
Queensrche first burst onto the music scene in 1982 with the release of their self-titled 4 song EP Queensrche. They very quickly gained international recognition and performed to sold out audiences around the world. With the follow up first full-length album "The Warning" in 1984, and the ground breaking 1986 release of "Rage For Order", Queensrche continued to prove their worldwide dominance as one of the most respected and creative bands of the 80's. In 1988 the band turned out yet another monumental album "Operation: Mindcrime", which would go on to become one of the TOP 10 best selling concepts records of all time, and set the stage for continued sold out performances around the world. With the release of the critically acclaimed and commercially successful "Empire" in 1991, the band earned multiple Grammy Award nominations and won the MTV "viewers choice" award for the #1 chart topping hit "Silent Lucidity". During the next ten years, the band continued to release albums and tour the world to sold-out audiences. Queensrche has sold over 30 million albums worldwide and have continued to break new ground and push their creative process!
