QUEENSRŸCHE – announce new album & premiere new track

Against the formidable obstacles of an ever-changing cultural landscape, the rise and fall of various musical trends, and the near collapse of the record industry itself, QUEENSRŸCHE secured a triumphant legacy as one of hard rock's most respected and celebrated acts, selling 30 million albums around the world across a 30-plus-year career.

The much-anticipated new offering, 'Condition Human', sees vocalist Todd LaTorre deliver the performance of a lifetime on what is now his sophomore recording effort with the band. Produced by Zeuss (Rob Zombie, Hatebreed, Sanctuary) in the band's native Washington, Condition Human is a new mountain towering over many of the peaks and valleys of the hard rock landscape which will be released 2nd Oct via Century Media Records.

The epic album opening track, 'Arrow of Time', can be heard here:

QUEENSRŸCHE are currently on tour in Europe and will be touring as direct support to the legendary SCORPIONS across North America from Sept 10th to Oct 9th. For all dates either see below or head over to www.queensrycheofficial.com

The band's name is uttered in the same breath as many of the groups they looked to as influences and others who arose as peers. QUEENSRŸCHE built a dedicated legion of fans traveling the globe on tour with fellow rock giants like IRON MAIDEN, GUNS N' ROSES, METALLICA, JUDAS PRIEST, and DEF LEPPARD. In recent years, they've consistently delivered high-octane live shows combining the hungry fire of a new band with the tempered experience of master showmen. Even with eleven gold and platinum plaques and a several Top 10 hard rock anthems woven into the very fiber of the genre, QUEENSRŸCHE won't relent. In fact, they're in the throes of a jaw-dropping creative resurgence.
