Queensryche Talk New Album Demos
The band have been writing for a couple of monthsIn a new interview with Billboard, the band revealed that they are currently writing their next album - their first without Geoff Tate - and they are still trying to get used to the new line-up.
Drummer Scott Rockenfield said "It's going well. We've been writing for the last couple months. It's all so fresh to us, even just our relationship with Todd [La Torre] being in the band. It's kind of a whirlwind. I think our heads every day are kind of spinning with everything that we're dealing with. Some of it's good and some of it's bad that you gotta deal with, and you know all the stuff that we're going through."
Guitarist Michael Wilton added "Each one of us has hard drives full of material that was never used for whatever reasons . . . We all wanna write these songs together. We all want to be in the room, use the best ability of everybody and make these songs a band signature, [where] we play it before we burn it on a computer. You gotta play it together. We wanna bring that essence back like we used to do in Scott's basement that we used to call the Dungeon (where the band rehearsed in its early days). That's where the magic happens."
