Queensryche postpone UK tour
Queensryche, fronted by Todd La Torre, have postponed their UK tour until October as a result of duties relating to their upcoming album release.
The band were due to play their first British dates without Geoff Tate next month, but have changed their schedule in order to launch the record as planned on June 10.
They say in a statement: “We know some fans are upset. Queensryche never want to miss any chance to see and play for our fans around the world – but there are some things we have to do for our label in order to get the new record out to you in the time we promised.
“When the shows were originally booked, these obligations were not known to us, as we were still talking with various labels.”
Queensryche recently released Redemption, the first full track featuring La Torre’s vocals – hear it below.
The continue: “We feel we have made some of the best music of our career – and would put it out tomorrow if it was within our power for you all to hear. Our label would kill us if we did, though.
“We will get back to Europe as soon as we can and are excited to play the classics as well as some of this new material for all our fans around the world.”
