Queensrÿche to Release New Studio Album in June

Seattle rockers Queensrÿche have signed with Century Media and will release their new album June 11.

The new disc will be the debut album from the current lineup of Todd La Torre (vocals), Michael Wilton (guitars), Parker Lundgren (guitars), Eddie Jackson (bass) and Scott Rockenfield (drums).

The band premiered a snippet from a new song, “Redemption,” from the upcoming release on Eddie Trunk’s radio show on February 22. You can check it out below.

“Queensrÿche is excited to begin writing this next chapter of our career with Century Media," says bassist Eddie Jackson. "Their passion and love for music has been apparent since early discussions and we are pleased to call them partners on this journey. We are also thankful for all of the fans who have supported us from day one and helped us get to where we are today. Todd, Scott, Parker, Michael and I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for each and every one of you.”

Queensrÿche also will head out on their Return to History World Tour in March and April. The tour kicks off on March 5 in Dubuque, Iowa, and makes stops in nine countries, wrapping up April 26 in the Netherlands. The band will take to the high seas on this year’s Monsters Of Rock Cruise and Sweden Rock Cruise. The 23-date trek will make stops in New York, Tennessee and Florida, plus Canada, the UK and Germany. Tickets for all shows are on sale now. Check out all the dates below.
