Fact: Queensrÿche have never been a band to rest on their laurels. In a career set against the new-millennium’s backdrop of cultural chaos, they’ve remained a constant; musically innovative and lyrically thought-provoking. One of rock’s most respected names who have weathered the storm and emerged in 2019 with The Verdict. It’s an album that echoes Queensrÿche’s three decades of career high-points while pushing ahead with the confidence and urgency of a band just now coming into its own.

With a legacy behind them that’s shifted over 30 million records and built a dedicated legion of fans while touring the globe alongside giants including Metallica, Def Leppard and The Scorpions, Queensrÿche have exceeded themselves once again. If Queensrÿche’s 15th studio album sounds like a young, hungry band just hitting its stride, it’s because that is precisely the case. Produced and mixed by Chris “Zeuss” Harris (Hatebreed, Rob Zombie), who helmed 2015’s Condition Human, it’s also Queensrÿche’s third album with frontman Todd La Torre, who joined the veteran band in 2012, taking the reins from erstwhile voice, Geoff Tate.

“The Verdict is that statement for us – in much the same way that [1984’s] The Warning was,” says founding guitarist Michael Wilton. “This one’s the creative convergence of this lineup. We got together and worked on every song as a band. The spontaneity, the creativity; it came out of all of us, working together as a band should.” From the hypnotic riff and melody of “Light Years” to the moodiness of “Dark Reverie” or the epic rock n’ roll workout of “Propaganda Fashion,” this is a record that stands up to Queensrÿche’s gold and platinum watersheds including Rage for Order, Empire or Promised Land.

    I need to let my inner Rycher out, February, in the Crystal Ballroom. I can think of no better way to vent all my work frustrations out, than to head bang the night away with my Fiancé! He’ll be holding me up on his shoulders, letting me free the demons haha.

    The new Queensrÿche album is sick and heavy! So great to see them still killing it. Love that they’re coming back to the Crystal Ballroom and bringing John 5 with them! Really hope that I’m able to catch them this time around. Thanks for the chance, PDXPipeline!!!

    Queensryche’s very first concert ever was in Portland on June 29th 1983 at The Paramount Theater. It was a KGON Low Dough Show for $4.92. They opened for a band called Zebra and Queensryche blew them away. You could tell Queensryche were going places on that night and they sure did. I was at that show in the 4th row and would love to see them again all of these years later. Sure hope that I win these tickets.
