Legendary Seattle progressive hard rockers QUEENSRYCHE are rescheduling some of their upcoming European shows next month. The postponement of these dates is caused by changes in the bands promotional schedule brought upon by their new label, Century Media Records, in order to meet the demands of their upcoming June 10th worldwide release date. All affected performances have been moved to October in an effort to honor the band’s desire to play for their fans around the globe. A complete list of all European tour dates for QUEENSRYCHE can be seen below.
Please note, the Sweden Rock Cruise and the Power Prog & Metal Festival in Belgium have not been affected. While the promoters of the other shows were gracious and accommodating enough to move around their dates, the cruise and festival show obviously could not be changed. QUEENSRYCHE did not want to miss out on these amazing events knowing there was no chance to make them up to the fans.
The band also debuted the full version of the song “Redemption” on SiriusXM Satellite Radio on Monday March 25th on Ozzy’s Boneyard and Eddie Trunk Live/Trunk Nation simultaneously at 7:00PM EST/4:00PM PST. The song is posted on the label’s YouTube page and can be viewed at www.youtube.com.
The band wrote “Redemption” collectively with Michael and Todd with the melodies and lyrics written by Todd. The single “Redemption” and upcoming Century Media release marks the debut from the lineup comprised of Todd La Torre (Vocals), Michael Wilton (Guitars), Parker Lundgren (Guitars), Eddie Jackson (Bass) and Scott Rockenfield (Drums). The song was mixed and mastered by famed QUEENSRYCHE producer James “Jimbo” Barton who is known for working on the band’s classics Operation: Mindcrime and Empire.
