Queensrÿche bassist Eddie Jackson recently spoke with Grece's Rock Pages about the band's new album, Condition Hüman. An excerpt from the interview is available below:
Rockpages.gr: Since Todd’s arrival to the band, you are playing songs up to the Empire album. Do the rest of the albums – I am referring to all the albums after Promised Land- have any significance for you? Do they represent the band at this point?
Eddie Jackson: "That was always the concept really...when we started working with Todd, the idea was to work and rehearse songs from the EP up to the Empire album and Todd was really cool about it. Eventually, we will start doing songs from Promised Land, Hear In The Now Frontier, Tribe etc. in the future, but for the time being we are playing songs that we haven't performed for a very long time... that's how the whole idea came about. But it's a matter of time before we will start performing past Empire songs."

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.
Condition Hüman sees 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 Hüman is a new mountain towering over many of the peaks and valleys of the hard rock landscape.
