Queensryche Already Planning Next Record
The band haven't even finished touring their latest LP yetIn an interview with Billboard frontman Geoff Tate revealed that the band have already sown the seeds for their next album, despite their latest Dedicated To Chaos only appearing a couple of months ago.
"We kind of have that practice, to jump from one to the next," he explains. "It's what drives us to get up in the morning, the new music, writing the music. If we don't do that, we're just resting on our laurels and playing songs we've played a million times before, and none of us want to do that."
Tate says Queensryche is currently "putting some sketches together and discussing direction and that kind of thing," and he expects some songs will start to surface while the group is on the road. "We have studios with us at all times," he notes. "If you come backstage at any given show, we have a room set up, everybody here and there, working away. It looks like a laboratory. That really keeps the music flowing, too."
Despite the band's eagerness to move onto the next project, the band are likely to take a break later this year following a North American tour. You can expect a new tour and perhaps that new record in 2012
