Queensrÿche: "Dedicated To Chaos" Cover Artwork Unveiled
Seattle progressive rockers Queensrÿche will release their twelfth studio album, "Dedicated To Chaos", on June 28 in 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."
