When asked about the overall musical direction of the material on “Dedicated To Chaos”, QUEENSRŸCHE singer Geoff Tate recently told Paul Anthony of U.K.’s Rock Radio, “It’s kind of like an ‘Empire’ record set 25 years in the future. [Laughs] It’s a very listenable record, I think. I think people will find it interesting to listen to on headphones, especially. There’s a lot going on with it. And there’s definitely an emphasis on the rhythm section. Eddie [Jackson, bass] and Scott [Rockenfield, drums] have written a lot of the songs on this particular record, so it really showcases what they do, which is something very special.”
He added, “This record is definitely a boundary-pusher in a lot of respects, I think. It’s always difficult to describe music; it’s better to experience it. So I’ll let people hear it and make up their own minds.”
QUEENSRŸCHE will guest on the nationally syndicated radio show “Rockline” with host Bob Coburn on Wednesday, June 29 at 8:30 p.m. PT / 11:30 p.m. ET. Fans are encouraged to speak with QUEENSRŸCHE by calling 1-800-344-ROCK (7625).
