Video Premiere: Queensrÿche – Redemption
Prog is proud to premiere the new video from prog metal giants Queensrÿche. View Redemption below.
It’s taken from this year’s self-titled album, their first with new frontman Todd La Torre after the dramatic departure of Geoff Tate last year, which has kept both parties embroiled in legal action.
Drummer Scott Rockenfield recently admitted the band knew they had a lot to prove with the new record, saying: “While working on it we’d joke, ‘Are we putting out a turd?’ You can’t polish a turd, and you can’t convince people to buy a turd.”
But he adds: “Our transition brought back that energy and feel that was missing. It feels like a rebirth.”
Some of that rebirth is captured in the Redemption video, which features scenes from La Torre’s first shows with the band and their initial recording sessions.
The La Torre line-up of Queensrÿche hit the UK for a series of shows starting this weekend:
Oct 12: London O2 Academy Islington
Oct 13: Wolverhampton Wulfrun Hall
Oct 15: Glasgow Garage
Oct 16: Manchester HMV Ritz
Oct 17: Nottingham Rock City
Oct 18: Dublin The Academy
