Queensryche add UK dates

Queensryche have added UK dates to their 2015 touring itinerary – they’ll play in Bristol, London and Brighton in August.

Todd La Torre and co are currently running a Pledge campaign entitled Building The Empire for the launch of their second album since controversially splitting with original frontman Geoff Tate.

The band say: “It’s been a turbulent year for Queensryche – and we’ve decided to harness that energy and drive into making a killer new record.” The follow-up to 2013’s self-titled release is expected in the coming months, with 63 days remaining to pre-order via their campaign page.

They recently launched a scheme to intice well-off fans to become investors in the band company, offering a limited number of $50,000 stakes in Queensryche Holdings LLC.

Support on all three UK shows comes from Death Angel, with Armored Saint appearing in London.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
