In addition to announcing their upcoming headline tour, QUEENSRŸCHE have released a new music video for the track “Sicdeth” off Digital Noise Alliance. Speaking about the song and video, Todd La Torre shares:
“‘Sicdeth’ is an abstract tale about convicted killers and the fallout of those attached on both sides. How can the victims’ and the assailants’ families overcome such pain? The inmate now has only their mind with which to escape. The song lyrics discretely touch on the very polarizing convicted murderer Jody Arias. The video however was more tailored to the Aileen Wuornos case.”
With a career that not only spans, but has charted the course of multiple genres, QUEENSRŸCHE remains a force in their own right. ‘Digital Noise Alliance’, QUEENSRŸCHE’s 16th studio album continues their ever-evolving legacy.
Once again teaming up with producer Zeuss (Rob Zombie, Hatebreed), ‘Digital Noise Alliance’ not only refracts QUEENSRŸCHE’s past accomplishments but also pushes into the band’s future. It is the band effortlessly moving from strength to strength: immediate and thought-provoking. Quintessentially QUEENSRŸCHE.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve been a fan of the music of Queensryche for many, many years. How many you might ask? Well, the first time I ever saw them was when KISS was touring for “Animalize” and I believe back then that “The Warning” album was just released or still coming. They blew my mind which was odd for a KISS show since I am hyper focused on them alone. The next go round would be a double dose of slots when they toured with the mighty Iron Maiden during the “Powerslave” tour. Suffice it to say I was sold and I have been with the band through all of their musical and lineup changes and still find myself enjoying the presentation after all this time. The band just completed a successful second run of direct support dates with Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Judas Priest. We caught both tours and loved it. I’m going to hopefully be participating at the NYC show which seems like really far away at the moment and by the way this one happens shortly after the 18th Anniversary of this humble website. Closing up I wonder what you all think about this one. Please feel free to chime in down below in the comments and I will see you again soon. Stay safe out there.
