Queensrÿche: "Wot We Do" Video Released

Vocalist Geoff Tate of Seattle progressive rockers Queensrÿche has made his own video for the band's new song "Wot We Do" featuring footage from the group's 2010 Queensrÿche Cabaret tour. The trek, which kicked off last July, was previously described by the group as "Teatro ZinZanni meets Cirque du Soleil, with the band performing their hits and never-heard-before selections accompanied by go-go dancers, burlesque dancers, drag queens, a juggler, ballet dancer, trapeze artist, a contortionist and others. Definitely a fun-filled evening like no other full of freaks and shrieks!"

When asked by Attention Deficit Delirium what kind of reaction
Queensrÿche got to the cabaret tour last year, the band's drummer, Scott Rockenfield, replied. "There was no middle ground or gray area. You probably loved it or you probably hated it, and we saw all of that on the Blabbermouth sites of the world. Needless to say, that was another Queensrÿche experiment that we always do. We weren't going out to promote a new record, but we didn't just want to sit and make a record because to be honest, we get bored. We like to keep the movement going, and we like to see our fans. The invention of cabaret was [that] Geoffloves to act. He really likes getting up and having a purpose on stage rather than just getting up and doing a light show and a rock set. He wanted to do something different. So he pitched that to us, and it became what it was. It was an opportunity for our families to get involved; our wives were onstage with us as part of the troupe, so it gave us excuses and covered the expenses of having them travel with us. That was nice for my wife and I, plus I could stare at her every night not wearing any clothes."
