QUEENSRŸCHE members Geoff Tate, Rudy Sarzo (OZZY OSBOURNE, DIO, WHITESNAKE, QUIET RIOT) and Robert Sarzo (QUIET RIOT, HURRICANE) took part in an interview and acoustic performance of the song “Eyes Of A Stranger” this morning (Friday, April 5) on “The Heidi Frank Show” on KLOS 95.5 FM radio station in Los Angeles, California. You can now watch video footage of their appearance below.
Deadline Music/Cleopatra Records has released “Cold”, the new single from the Geoff Tate-fronted version of QUEENSRŸCHE, via iTunes. The track, which was mixed by Anthony Focx (NEWSTED, AEROSMITH, NIGHT RANGER, TED NUGENT), will also be released as a special limited-edition seven-inch vinyl single with a newly recorded version of the QUEENSRŸCHE classic “Silent Lucidity” — mixed by Jürgen Engler (DORO, DIE KRUPPS) — on the B-side.
“Cold” comes off QUEENSRŸCHE‘s new album, “Frequency Unknown”, which is scheduled for release on April 23 via Deadline Music/Cleopatra. The CD was produced by Jason Slater at a studio in Northern California.
