Queensryche: Dedicated To Chaos audio samples available

Seattle rockers Queensryche mark their 30th anniversary with the release their 12th studio album, “Dedicated To Chaos,” on June 28.

The album was recorded in the group's hometown and produced by Kelly Gray.

"It's kind of like an 'Empire' record set 25 years in the future,” singer Geoff Tate recently told Paul Anthony of U.K.’s Rock Radio. “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. This record is definitely a boundary-pusher in a lot of respects, I think. It's always difficult to describe music; it's better to experience it. So I'll let people hear it and make up their own minds."

Queensryche are currently planning a tour in support of the new disc, which fans can now check out – audio samples are streaming at here.
