US prog metallers  Queensryche have released a dramatic video for their brand new single Behind The Walls, which you can watch below.

The new single, which has strong echoes of the band's classic prog metal sound of the late 80 ad ear 90s, is taken from Queensrych's upcoming new studio album, their sixteenth, Digital Noise Alliance, which will be released through Century Media on October 7.

“It is a story about those in crisis dealing with various forms of abuse," the band state about the conceptual video. "The protagonist is faced with the dichotomy of reconciling a lifetime of devout faith, while suffering immense abuse with no intervention."

Digital Noise Alliance has been produced by Zeuss (Rob Zombie, Hatebreed), who also worked on 2015's Condition Hüman and 2019's The Verdict. The album will be released in a variety of CD and vinyl formats and as a digital album.

In October Queensryche join the North American leg of Judas Priest's 50 Heavy Metal Years tour. Full dates below.
