Queensryche new album release date, cover etc !

Queensrÿche new album
"Dedicated to Chaos" will be released at 28th June 2011 !
Taken from their official site:

"Queensrÿche announced that their new album will be called "Dedicated to Chaos" and it will be released this summer. It’s the band’s first effort for its new label, Roadrunner Records/Loud & Proud. The band – featuring Geoff Tate, Michael Wilton, Eddie Jackson, Scott Rockenfield and Parker Lundgren — is currently planning a tour in support of the new opus, which was recorded in its native Seattle. Tour dates and information will be released when available. 

“Modern life moves fast,” commented front-man Geoff Tate about the album. “Plug into the rhythm of the now with our 12th studio album, "Dedicated to Chaos". It’s a clash and slash of musical experimentation anchored by the pulse of digital code.” He did issue one suggestion to listeners as well, saying: “Enjoy – headphones are a must.” 

Queensrÿche’s 1988-issued album Operation: Mindcrime is universally respected as a classic concept release about rock, revenge and redemption, which is ultimately regarded as one of the most important and essential hard rock records in the genre’s expansive canon. 1990’s follow-up, Empire, yielded a #1 single, the Grammy-nominated ballad “Silent Lucidity,” which the band performed at the 1992 Grammy Awards accompanied by a supporting orchestra.

In 2006, the band released Operation: Mindcrime II, a scorching sequel to their original. The band then hit the road performing both albums Operation: Mindcrime and Operation: Mindcrime II back-to-back in their entirety in an incredible theatrical presentation throughout the year. The final performance was recorded at The Moore Theatre in Seattle that October and the Mindcrime at the Moore double CD/DVD release debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Music DVD Chart and eventually reached Gold status.

The band is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year and "Dedicated to Chaos" marks a new and riveting chapter in Queensrÿche’s already impressive history that fans will not want to miss."

I used to love Queensryche when DeGarmo was on board. Since he departed, nothing is even close to the songs he composed. That's a really shame...

You are right about this. We can only hope there is a chance this album "reminds" us a bit of the old Queensrÿche.
