QUEENSRŸCHE To Release The Verdict Album In March; Spring US Headline Tour Announced With Special Guests FATES WARNING

Queensrÿche have just announced their newest album, The Verdict, out March 1st via Century Media Records. The band's forthcoming release was produced, mixed, and mastered by Zeuss (Rob Zombie, Iced Earth, Hatebreed) at Uberbeatz in Lynwood, WA, Planet-Z in Wilbraham, MA and Watershed Studio in Seattle, WA. Pre-orders and formats will be announced soon. In the meantime, the band has a Pledge pre-order campaign currently running here.

"I'm extremely proud of what we were able to accomplish on this record," states Queensrÿche vocalist Todd La Torre about The Verdict. "The relentless dedication and hard work of everyone involved has been very rewarding. I am excited and looking forward to it no longer just belonging to us, but belonging to the world. We hope you all enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed making it!"

Michael "Whip" Wilton (guitar) adds, "The Verdict is the most metal and the most progressive record we have made in a long time. I couldn't possibly be more excited for everyone to hear this."

To support The Verdict, Queensrÿche have also announced their spring US headline tour today with special guests Fates Warning. The Cringe will be joining both bands on select dates. The tour will kick off on March 2nd in Orlando, making stops in major markets such as New York, Atlanta, Chicago, and Los Angeles, and will wrap on April 3rd in Seattle.
