After releasing a trailer for their new album back in November of last year, Queensryche with Todd La Torre have now unveiled their first single with the new singer. "Redemption" is available for streaming below. It is the first track from the band's new album, which is due for release in June - listen to it below.
Recently, original singer Geoff Tate, who was sacked from Queensryche last year, has had some harsh words to say about the current line-up of the band:
"Why in the world would any SANE people launch this whole shakeup and fire everybody who is your support system and everyone who's involved with you, cancel all your income for the year and cut your head off by firing the face and voice of your band. They have basically sliced their own throat and rubbed the name of the band in the dirt in this quest of theirs and have no sane reason why such madness was necessary. It doesn't make any sense."
But what do you think? Does "Redemption" sound like classic Queensryche to you? Or does the track make you wish that Geoff Tate never went away? Let us know in the comments.
