QUEENSRŸCHE is continuing to tour in support of its latest album, "The Verdict", which was released in March via Century Media Records. The disc was produced, mixed, and mastered by Chris "Zeuss" Harris (ROB ZOMBIE, ICED EARTH, HATEBREED) at Uberbeatz in Lynwood, Washington; Planet-Z in Wilbraham, Massachusetts; and Watershed Studio in Seattle, Washington.
The current QUEENSRŸCHE lineup features two original members, bassist Eddie Jackson and guitarist Michael Wilton, along with singer Todd La Torre and guitarist Parker Lundgren.
"The Verdict" marks QUEENSRŸCHE's third full-length release with La Torre, following the departure of Geoff Tate in 2012.
Wilton told Guitar World about "The Verdict": "We wanted a harder edge on this album. Our fans expect it from us. 'The Verdict' has all the elements of our style — hard rock, progressive and metal. It's all there. We've rebuilt the band, and more of our fans are seeing and hearing us. We lost our chemistry with Tate and have moved on happily without him. When [Chris] DeGarmo [guitar] left the band, we weren't writing as a band anymore. Now we are creating music as we did during our early days, and firing on all cylinders."
Added Lundgren: "We pushed the envelope on this album. We wanted to bring a progressive element into the heaviness of whatever song we are playing. We're all very proud of how exciting and hard rocking the album turned out, and I think our fans, both old and new, will enjoy it very much."
