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.
