Queensryche To Start Writing Next Album Soon
According to Blabbermouth.net, singer Geoff Tate of Seattle progressive rockers Queensrche was interviewed on yesterday's (Thursday, December 8) edition of "The Men's Room", which airs on the Seattle station KISW 99.9 FM. You can now listen to the chat using the audio player here. When asked about Queensrche's plans following the band's last scheduled concert of 2012, which will take place on January 13 at the Peppermill Concert Hall in Wendover, Nevada, Tate said, "Nothing. We're taking a year off and we'll be working on a new album. [We'll be going] back to the studio." Queensrche's new album, "Dedicated To Chaos", sold 8,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 70 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band's previous CD, the epic concept album "American Soldier", opened with 21,000 units back in April 2009 to enter the chart at No. 25. This was roughly half the first-week tally registered by Queensrche's "Operation: Mindcrime II" album, which shifted 44,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release back in April 2006 to debut at No. 14 on The Billboard 200 chart. Queensrche's 2003 effort, "Tribe", sold 20,000 copies in the first week while 1999's "Q2K", opened with sales of 28,000. Queensrche's top-selling album by far is 1990's "Empire", which was certified triple-platinum in October 1994 for sales in excess of three million copies in the United States. The original "Operation: Mindcrime" release (1988) attained platinum status in August 1991, while 1994's "Promised Land" reached the same plateau in December 1994.
