Queensrÿche: New 20 Min Video Interview With Geoff Tate

Jay Nanda of the San Antonio Metal Music Examiner conducted an interview with vocalist Geoff Tate of Seattle progressive rockers Queensrÿche prior to the band's September 20, 2011 concert at Majestic Theatre in San Antonio, Texas. You can now watch the chat in two parts below.

 told that  Queensrÿche is already starting work on its next album despite having just released its 12th LP, "Dedicated To Chaos", in late June.

"We kind of have that practice, to jump from one to the next," he explained. "It's what drives us to get up in the morning, the new music, writing the music. If we don't do that, we're just resting on our laurels and playing songs we've played a million times before, and none of us want to do that."
Tate said  Queensrÿche  is currently "putting some sketches together and discussing direction and that kind of thing," and he expects some songs will start to surface while the group is on the road. "We have studios with us at all times," he noted. "If you come backstage at any given show, we have a room set up, everybody here and there, working away. It looks like a laboratory. That really keeps the music flowing, too."
