Queensryche release Guardian video

Queensryche have released a video for their track Guardian.

It features on latest album Condition Human, out on October 2 via Century Media and now available to pre-order. It’s the band’s second album with frontman Todd La Torre.

The singer tells Billboard: “Guardian touches on the empowering qualities of strength in numbers, and how people can rise up to create real change.

“It is an anthem that supports people standing up for rights and values that may be infringed upon on the micro and macro level. It’s a single thread that surrounds a multifaceted topic of being human, human relationships relating to others and the world that surrounds us.“

He continues: “Good, bad or indifferent, change is possible, but is only as strong as its relativity to perception, which perhaps is the very foundation and basis for the initiation of change.”

Queensryche previously released a stream of album opener Arrow Of Time and kick off a North American tour later this week.
